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.

So glad my husband and I found this slice of heaven heading out from Cedar Key! Joe and his wife were some of the friendliest people we met on the island. His wife's crab quiche was to die for and her grits were the BEST I've ever put in mouth!! Make sure and try Joes pepper sauce too we grabbed a bottle as we were leaving. So glad we stopped here!

Thank Janice C

We are glad you stopped by on your way out of town also. Thanks for your kind words regarding the quiche-a signature menu item, the datil pepper sauce and the friendly atmosphere. These are all very important to us.

Thanks for coming by for lunch and we are so pleased that you enjoyed sitting out on our deck overlooking the back bayou of the gulf. Our chicken salad sandwich is a signature item and very popular with both locals and visitors to Cedar Key. Glad you also liked our Cedar Key Lime Pie, made fresh in our kitchen.

Loved this little cafe. Sit inside or outside on the porch. Joe is friendly and informative. His wife's food is great. The Blue Crab Quiche is the specialty and a must try for sure. Delicious..

Thanks for coming in, we are thrilled that you loved the blue crab quiche! That is one of our signature dishes. We try to also offer a wonderful and when asked for informative atmosphere. We hope you will come again. Our dining area, inside and out, offers a beautiful view of the back bayou.

Just finished the delicious crab quiche. It was even better than described here. They don't scrimp on the crab meat. Nice, laid back vibe with fast friendly service.
