You cannot visit Key West without tasting the best Seafood Omelet in the world right here at the Banana Cafe. You may also like the BLT's or the Bacon Benedict. Best Breakfasts on the island.

The owner gave me a post card of Josephine Baker while I talked to her in my basic French telling her that my mother is Venezuelan-French... The crepes are... More
