My wife and I were visiting the Key West area and we asked some locals where to go to get a good breakfast. They said to try the Banana Cafe. We did and loved it. I had an omelet that was very tasty. The environment was awesome. Ask them to sit you upstairs so you can overlook the street down... More

We loved coming for breakfast here during our stay in Key West. The service is friendly and efficient and if you are lucky you can even get an outside table. All the dishes we tried were very tasty. Great and convenient location too with lots to see on Duval Street!

We wanted to visit another restaurant, but they messed up our reservation. I called Banana Cafe, and they told our party of 8 to come on down. The food was perfect, and the staff was very friendly. This was my second visit, and they did not let me down. A great little restaurant with a cool French cafe feel.

The Cafe latte was almost all milk and the French coffee was just ok. But the breakfast food was very good. We had an omelet & eggs Benedict. The breakfast potatoes are also good.

Clean, great menu, and value. My wife ordered something that caught her off guard when they delivered it, and was amazed at the flavors. I had quiche that started my day off with joy. Right on Duval street, treat yourself!

We ran into this place while cruising down Duval Street on our bikes. We were seated outside on the second floor with an excellent people watching view. We had great service from a very handsome young man from Romania! We both had the veggie crepes which included avocado, roasted beets, caramelized onions, asparagus and goat cheese. Each bite was better... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch. The seafood crepe was wonderful. The crepe was light and the seafood, mushrooms, tomatoes and sauce were very fresh! Our waitress Monica was very friendly. It was a nice place!
