Have been frequenting this place for years and not a single bad experience. Can be a wait to get a table but there is a reason for that....it's reputation.

We stopped for two small pieces of key lime pie and two waters. Our bill was $15.50. With tip, the total was $18.00. Ridiculous price for a small piece of pie. At this rate and size an entire pie would sell for $72.00. Overpriced regardless of quality.

Enjoyed the atmosphere....sitting outside on their patio, it was quite pleasant and shaded. We had breakfast and it was very tasty. I had a white sangria and it was one of the best I've ever tasted! Our waitress did a great job. A must for breakfast in Key West.

Fish sandwich was outstanding - oysters on the half shell fresh and flavorful! Prompt friendly service good size portions at a reasonable price. Casual walk in any time. Family-friendly eat inside or outside.

We all enjoyed our meals at Pepe's Cafe. There were five of us. The service was great, and the waitress was a hoot to be around. It was the best key lime pie I ate the whole week in Key West. AND.....the waitress gave us a copy of the recipe.
