Description: When you visit KONA JOE'S ISLAND CAFE, you're in for a treat. Experience our fresh gourmet coffee, scrumptious sandwiches and real fruit smoothies. Don't leave without a hand-dipped ice cream cone or a slice of Edie's famous Cedar Key Lime Pie. You'll love the friendly atmosphere of our cheery indoor and outdoor seating. Joe will spoil you as you enjoy your meal on our private deck, watching the pelicans play on the stunning Back Bayou.

We grabbed a coffee and a chai latte to go. The coffee was good, but the chai latte was a miss. I think it was made with a mix, not actually with chai tea and frothed milk. Our Keurig makes a better chai latte (and that is obviously with a mix). If we are in Cedar Key again and looking for a hot drink at this end of town, it will be the coffee for me.

We hear you Eagertraveller37! We've improved our Chai Lattes to include a delicious freshly brewed chai tea topped with frothy steamed milk. We hope you'll give it another try the next time you're in town. Cheers, Kona Joe's.

We had coffee and lunch here. The crab quiche is so delicious and the Key Lime pie the best we had! So thank you. The cafe is small and we met some really nice people in it.

We enjoyed breakfast at this tiny place on the river. The cook is the boss, but we were regaled with a few stories from the owner and waiter/cashier..did I say it is small? The location is perfect for the breakfast and they had a home made quiche my wife enjoyed while I loved the egg/bacon/muffin. Good coffee, great conversation if you want it, and something to talk about. Did I say it is small?

Owners take special care and interest in preparing & serving the food. They'll make you feel like an old friend even if it's your first visit. It's not gourmet or fancy, it's simply good food. Many of the other restaurants serve deep fat fried everything. Kona Joe's is refreshingly different with sandwiches on tasty rolls and a great special every day.

Six of us just had a marvelous homemade and fresh breakfast at Joe's. We were served a unique and tasty selection of omelettes, quiche, and grits. Excellent! A visit to Cedar Key should definitely include Kona Joe's! Thanks Joe!
