We have passed this place by so many times but never at the right time for a meal. We finally had breakfast. We will be back. Cubano egg sandwich was delicious and huge, fresh squeezed OJ was great.

Fresh food with a Cuban flair and great cuban coffee. Worth the wait in line for this one. A must for Key West visit.

We have a great friend who has the last name "Bucci" and we went by the restaurant Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to buy a shirt for him. No one else had access to the storage where the shirts are and that was disappointing. Especially...when we tried to ask when he would be there and were met with shrugged shoulders. The coffee I got was lovely and I saw tons of beautiful plates of food on the many trips we made. Too bad, that was a gift we looked very forward to giving.More

Great stop before our charter tour. Ordered Cuban breakfast sandwich which was big enough for 2 people. Con Leche coffee was outstanding and fresh. Daughters got ice coffee that was comparable to the big chain shops.

We stopped here twice for breakfast while waiting on our boat crew on 2 different days. We had a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich on Cuban bread and Cuban coffee. The food and coffee were great both times! The staff is extremely friendly and made...sure we enjoyed what we ordered which goes a long way in my book. You could tell they enjoyed what they were doing and it showed. We are planning another trip back to Key West and we will be sure to stop by back by!More

Blink and you might miss this spot. Miss it and you will regret it! We passed by this spot and the food looked so good, but we were on the go. On the last day, we tried to get a spot at a well known...restaurant on the pier, but the wait (and the smell) drove us back out the door. I suggested this little spot and my wife gave me a look that said she wasn’t impressed. Luckily, a man caught her glance and said, “Eat here, it’s the best food on the Key; I’m a local and I eat here, that says something” We pulled up some stools and never looked back. I had the shrimp tacos with a side of plantains. Holy cow! Easily the best I have ever had in Florida over the past 10 years. On top of it, the folks who run this spot are sweethearts and rumor has it that Jimmy Buffet records in the tiny building next door. This joint was an outstanding find!More
