Called ahead a few days before arriving as my wife's birthday was during our vacation in Key West. The Chef helped me design a cake "creation" based on what I know to be her favorites. It was chocolate with gnouche filling and a beautiful tropical theme with palm trees, white chocolate seashells and a sprinking of cinnaman suger for sand.... More

This place is fabulous! A bakery with a boutique atmosphere. The staff are so friendly and were having a conversation with us as they were making cakes right before our eyes. We ordered different flavored cupcakes which were heaven in our mouths! They were huge. Highly recommend!

My wife and I went to this place for a cupcake because it was on the top 10 on TA. We were not disappointed it was very tasty and the owner is a very nice lady. We loved how the chickens and roosters are outside guarding the place also. Try the strawberry shortcake cupcake it was very yummy.

Went to Key West to hide from the reality of turning 60 and my wife surprised me with a key lime birthday cake with Key West sea life decorations. The cake and filling were particularly excellent and she says the staff are as friendly as anyone in Key West.

What a wonderful place to experience local bakers at their best. Come in buy some cupcake, get a few cookies and be prepared for an oral delight. The dessert selection is overwhelming, but the staff are gracious and patient. I can't wait to order another cake, this one will have peanut butter between the layers. I would stop here everyday,...

I cannot say enough about the endless consistency that Key West Cakes delivers! No matter what the event or just a need for one perfect afternoon indulgence….do it! Get a cupcake. Or even try one of their savory "to go" dishes!

Key West Cakes did our wedding cake (via Kate Bentley Events) and we loved it! All of our guests agreed, the Key Lime with buttercream was wonderful! Didn't get time to visit the actual store on our trip but hopefully we'll be back and can pop in for a treat.
