This restaurant is a little hidden in a strip mall. The food was delicious. The service was good. The prices were reasonable. The picture is of the Greek salad with chicken added.

I love Kennedy Cafe...excellent food, lots of options. Unfortunately, last night was an absolute disaster. Went for dinner...it was like opening night of a restaurant run by an owner who has never been in the restaurant business before. Service was AWFUL!! Wait staff was virtually non-existent, our orders were forgotten and YOU WEREN'T EVEN BUSY (5 tables when we walked... More

Was in the mood for an authentic Greek food experience after our cruise through the greek islands, and the gyros and baklavas were to die for! Felt like I never left Greece!

Thank goodness for Kennedy cafe! This wonderful restaurant has become our ' go to' place on those nights we do not feel like cooking. My husbands favorite is their gyro which is plentiful, so tasty and comes with some of the best potato salad I have ever had. I have many favorites here from their chicken shwarma on Uzbek bread...which... More

My Wife and I stopped in for supper, mostly because I share a last name with both the street it's located on, and the restaurant name... so surely it would be fantastic! We had hummus to start.. it was fresh and homemade... slightly less salty and flavorful than something like Sabra... which I'm more used to, but served with some... More

We had dinner there, and ordered some of the Turkish selection. Very good food, and the fresh baked bread was delicious. Large beer menu. Free WiFi

For our first of three dinners in Key West my wife was thinking pizza, and Kennedy Café was not too far from our hotel. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived, around 5:30, and we had our choice of tables. We both ordered small build-your-own pizzas, and amazingly the waitress remembered 5 different toppings for each one. The pizzas were... More

We were working on our home and decided to give this place a try since we were tired and hungry. My wife ordered a turkey wrap which was excellent and it came with some potato salad which also was excellent. My daughter ordered a baked eggplant appetizer which was very good and she also ordered a Greek salad which also... More

Spent a few hours doing laundry dry from the trip and discovered this quaint little restaurant. OK white lie, we found this place on the first trip to Key West. We just did not do our review. The Cuban breakfast sandwiches are excellent. Price is fair, establishment is clean, and staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful.

Good value all dishes came with two starches. Service very friendly. Atmosphere is part bar part store front operation and part diner. Will return for cheap eats

Thank A J
