This is a must go place for us each trip to get the fish sandwich. Big piece of fish fried with a light flaky breading. Great place to people watch during lunch. Friendly staff, great food and cold drinks. What more do you need?

Busy and fun, this was a good choice of a place to eat. Lovely staff. Think dessert was the best bit...Key Lime pie.

In the hustle and bustle of Duval St. Key West, it was a hot afternoon and we needed a drink - to cool down. Mojito and Lemonade did the trick and adding in peel and eat shrimp made the stop scrumptious. A bit noisy, but great people watching. Friendly service and helpful staff.

Overpriced poorly mixed drink did not take away from the great people watching spot. Can not report on the food.

This is the second time we've been to Caroline's, and we always have a delicious meal at a great price! My husband and I both had a fresh fish sandwich and it was delicious!! Plus, a table on Duval street and great prices and beer! Caroline's is a MUST for us while in Key WesT!!

Visited Key West last week with 20 + friends and discovered Caroline's Cafe. What a great place - so great it became our go to place to eat. The blackened yellow snapper was to die for. Thanks, Caroline's Cafe for your awesome food, staff and service.

I really like Caroline's Café. Everything I have gotten there has been delicious! Their portions are huge, so I always try to share my meal with someone. The prices are reasonable, especially for the amount of food you get. My favorite meal that I have had there has been the Caroline's Salad Deluxe. It's nice to sit right on Duval... More
