Maybe my family is “spoiled” now because of the amazing Cuban coffee we had (at El Flamboyan’s in Ismoralda), but this coffee was just meh. The espresso actually tasted acidic.

Went here for coffee and the woman working there Erica was very nice to us and answered all of our tourest questions. We asked our server bob at steak and lobster about the best place to get coffee and he sent us there. Thanks for...the tip bob. They also rent kayaks here. My family thanks you for tipping.More

I always love to try local coffee spots and found Curly's a few years ago. They have walk up and drive through service only and there can be a bit of a wait at times, but that's because it's amazing! Our fav is the caramel...latte. Perfectly sweet and smooth. We came back every morning of our tripMore

We were looking for a coffee spot one night and came upon this place. Unfortunately it was closed at night, but we decided to give it a try the next morning. We didn't have to look for anymore coffee spots! You get in line, drive...by and pick up your coffee, plenty of choices both hot and cold and they taste great! The girls there were nice and fast. A definite must in Marathon!More

Best Coffee in the Keys!! We've worked it into every day of our trip. Their drinks are refreshing and sweet and cold. Perfect for taking to the pool, the beach or even on a bike ride! There's typically a line, but WELL WORTH THE WAIT!!

Small drive thru coffee shop. Offer a nice variety of coffee and tea, both hot and cold. Unfortunately the hot coffee was served lukewarm at best. Expensive and small for what you get. Glad the girl taking our order didn’t make our beverages as she...was playing with her hair the entire time.More

We stopped at Curly's for coffee and a smoothie while we were staying in Marathon. You can walk up to the window on one side or drive up on the other side. We opted to drive up. Our coffee drinks and our daughter's smoothie were...all great! If Curly's hadn't been a 10-minute drive from our resort, we would have gone every morning. In retrospect, I wish we had as the coffee in our room was not very good!More

The coffee was great, the service was terrible. The barista was very rude and then there are signs everywhere demanding a tip. The tip depends on the service!

We rode our bikes to Curly's Coffee while staying on Key Colony Beach and it was just the ticket! Delicious and strong coffee for the adults and amazing smoothies for the kids. The two ladies were so nice and accommodating all our questions and special...requests. A great way to start the day.More

I visited here upon recommendation from a local in a nearby souvenir shop. I was looking for an afternoon coffee and this exceeded my expectations. The iced coffee was smooth and delicious - not bitter, not burnt. You can drive right up to the window...(when I came it was empty, so I parked and walked to the window - not sure if I was breaking some kind of unspoken rule or not). There are a few Adirondack chairs out back to hangout and plan your next move if you're not in any rush. Definitely a laid back, local kind of place. Good vibes!More

Love love love this tiny gem. This small, inconspicuous shop has the best quality espresso drinks! During our time in Marathon, we visited twice a day. The over the top service and staff they have make the drinks even better. Must go!

We were disappointed to slow down, pull up the side road and see a huge line. This place is a shack and as with Starbucks, people don't seem to care if they are blocking traffic while waiting in line for their java. We had no...room to stop, so we kept driving west. Thankfully we saw a waffle board "Coffee" sign further up the road at Keys News and Coffee. Plenty of safe parking. Stop there instead, the owner was gracious and serious about his dark brew.More

Late answer but it's all about coffee and a few other cooling drinks. Still well worth the stop if you have a taste for hot or cold coffee.
