Description: We serve up delicious Cuban coffee, breakfast, and lunch fare to a large following of fans here in Key West. Come in the morning for Café con Leche or a Cuban Chocolate Mocha, and make sure to grab some breakfast too. Try favorites such as our Key Wester, which is two eggs, cheese, and your choice of ham, bacon, sausage, or pork roll sandwiched between two delicious pieces of pressed Cuban bread. It’s fantastic!Are you ready for lunch? Try our Famous Tuna Burger, our Turkey Club, or the Havana Rice & Beans. If you want to go lighter, order one of our freshly made salads or one of our delicious smoothies made with sweet tropical fruits.We also deliver! Cuban Coffee Queen is open every day, from 6:30 until sunset. Don’t forget to grab a T-shirt or hat while you’re at Cuban Coffee Queen. You’ll wish you had when you see folks walking around town with our famous memorabilia.

“Couldnt wait to come back!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

My wife were in Fort Myers cerebrating our 24th anniversary and took the ferry over to K.W. for a three day stay.

The first place we went after getting off was the Cuban Coffee Queen for two large Cafe Con Leche's and two Jose Marti's - SO GOOD!

Okay we decided after we should have just got one Jose Marti and split it; but then we wouldn't have had the leftovers to enjoy the next day picnicking at The Hemingway House.

We tried them for the first time when were in KW last year and could not wait to get back there again, best Cuban Coffee and sandwiches in KW as far as we're concerned!

We even picked up another Jose Marti and Large Cafe Con Leche for our return trip dinner on the Key West Express, when I pulled out that sandwich, the bag of plantain chips and fresh fruit believe me when I tell you the people around us were jealous - LOL!

A year is such a LONG time :o(

Thank you so much for this wonderful review! We're honored to be you and your wife's go-to coffee shop in Key West. Good call on those Cafe con Leches and Jose Martis — I'm sure there was more than enough left over! Thank you for being such a big advocate of our little coffee shack. Next time you're in our neck of the woods, we'll have your favorite meal waiting for you!

All the best,

“Great coffee, window service only, no inside. Menu looks good!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

I liked the area, grab a cup of coffee, walk around the neighboring shops, walk to the bight. Just so very pleasant and true to the area. The coffee was superb, never got back there to taste the menu, but it looked very interesting. There are a few benches outside to sit. It is right on a trolley stop.

“I'd walk more than a mile...”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

For a cup of this delicious brew! A real perk-me-up! We would show up at the crack of dawn, waiting for our cups, so we could start the day! Very tasty.

“In-Conch-Neato drinking the best Cordito!”
Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Cuban Coffee Queen makes the very best Cuban coffee beverages. Whether you get the traditional cafe con leche, any of the iced coffees or just black Cuban espresso you will love it. Personal favorite is the Cordito...strong and sweet yummy goodness in a cup. Sandwiches are delicious, too.
First stop after parking in the municipal lot near the wharf or biking around Key West.

It sounds like you've got us down pat. Thank you so much for this wonderful review! I couldn't have described the Cordito better myself — "strong and sweet yummy goodness in a cup". Thanks for being such a big advocate of our little coffee shop. We look forward to seeing you soon!
