I have always thought Five Brothers has the Best Cuban Mix and Cafe Con Leche.. There are trips to KW that I have settled for other places because I wasn't in the area of Five Brothers. I was so excited when I remembered they deliver! Not only do the deliver quickly, but the delivery guys are very polite and friendly.... More

Great tasting Cuban Sandwich. A little off the beaten path but well worth the walk. Reasonably priced. Would not consider this place a restaurant; no seating available inside. Two stand up tables only inside and a few chairs outside. Other than seating, this place is not to be missed.

Got this tip from a cabbie and had to walk a little bit but well worth it. Ordered breakfast sandwiches and cafe Leche which were amazing. Loved the family feel and friendly staff. Sat outside in the neighborhood and ate and watched people. Awesome experience all the way around.

This place is awesome ! Wonderful breakfast. Split the sandwich with a friend, they are big. Coffee is flavorful and so is the area. They only take cash, so be prepared.

Good place to go for breakfast or lunch, the tomato and cheese sandwich makes a great reasonably priced breakfast. Service has always been fast and friendly

The five brothers has the best Cuban sandwich on the whole island. The sweet potato fries are a must too. Price is very reasonable. Store is family owned.

So many people raved about this place and the praise is earned. Cozy and casual, it's a small place and not fussy. Food is fresh, not overly spiced to obscure the food itself.

We stayed just down the street and went to Five Brothers most mornings we were in town for a traditional Cuban sandwich for his breakfast. It's a cute family run place that takes only cash (but they have an ATM). They also had Cuban coffee and lots of other food choices. I would highly recommend this place for take out... More

Sandwiches are great. Pick some up to go and head to the beach! Perfect size and delicious. Friendly folks who own and operate it as well.

My wife and I have gotten Cuban coffee here every day for about thirty-five years. Absolutely the best con leche in Key West. Their lunches are also extremely good and very reasonable. Must try is the Cuban Mix sandwich, again I think Key Wests' best.
