This place is great. Cheaper prices than the other restaurants in the area. The staff is very VERY friendly. So, check this place out. It's well worth it.

Here is where you can buy the BEST Key Lime pie!!! It beats the other stand-alone pie shops in Key West. A bit larger slice and with the whipped cream! You can buy the whole pie at this restaurant rather than a piece. Its better priced even if its a couple of dollar pricier due to larger slice and taste... More

We stopped here for lunch one day while exploring key west. It was always packed and I love to eat al fresco (there aren't any "inside" tables here). I had the quesadillas and a key lime margarita and both were good. Nothing spectacular or gourmet or one of those special recipes you'd only get in key west, but a tasty,... More

Odd atmosphere. Breakfast brunch is typical greasy spoon diner food. It bothers me to go anywhere in kw and get a menu without some type of seafood on it. Our service was very slow. I did see they offer crab legs at night, but didn't get a chance.

Caroline's Cafe is located on the main street where most of the other restaurants and shops are. The food was plentiful and delicious. The service was quick even though it was busy. You can eat outside under big umbrellas so even if it's raining you can enjoy the outside area.The prices are reasonable. We plan to go back for another... More

This place was the first place we ate in key west right on duval. We had a great seat right on the patio over looking duval so we could people watch as we ate. The atmosphere was great and the food was very yummy. Cheaper food than most places! Conch fritters were a must try, they were so good here.

Ate here one evening when we had popped down overnight from Fort Lauderdale. The place was packed and this was low season! We had to wait less that twenty minutes for a table. Staff were helpful and we had a drink at the bar. Food was excellent. Spicy Cajun Jambalaya, tasty and reasonably priced. Good wine to accompany it -... More

This has to be one of the best eating places in Key West. The range of food is great with plenty of choice and a great atmosphere. The staff are genuine and friendly and would not be disappointed in the quality of the food.
