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.

“Delicious coffee”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

My husband and I are coffee snobs. We both got iced coffees and loved them. I also liked how the ice cubes were not water, but coffee ice cubes!! They were perfect to suck on once we finished the coffee. We will definitely be back for more coffee on our next visit

“Good for a quick breakfast on the run”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

We stopped at the Cuban Coffee Queen for breakfast. The one thing that disappointed us is there is no indoor seating, and not really any outdoor seating. From reading reviews, I did not get the sense that this is really just a take-out restaurant. So be aware that the only places to eat there with any sort of counter are on uncomfortable high stools in the back. That being said, we had breakfast sandwiches and cafe con leche. Our sandwiches were good. I ordered the cafe con leche light, with only a little bit of coffee but it came pretty much like any cafe con leche. Prices are reasonable. It was okay but not what I was expecting based on other reviews.

Thanks for your honesty. While it's wonderful you enjoyed your breakfast sandwich and cafe con leche, it's a shame you were a bit let down. We do offer benches as outdoor seating, but for the most part we are a grab-and-go kind of place. Or grab-and-enjoy-the-view! Besides the lack of seating, is there anything you would improve about our place? We're all ears! I hope you will come back and see us soon. We know we can show you an even better time!

Cheers,
Marius, Owner

“Great food and service!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

Make at least a couple of stops here every time we're here. Coffee is always fantastic. Shared the Cuban Mix and Chicken Salad for lunch yesterday. Everything was fresh and ready in practically no time!

“A grade of B minus overall”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Cuban mix sandwich was very good. The Cafe con leche was just so-so. I have had much better. This is a small stand, and there's no indoor seating, but several tables and benches to sit and eat your sandwich at. They also deliver and the delivery gal seemed quite busy. I would return, but would not go out of my way to do so.

Thank you for this honest feedback. While it's wonderful you enjoyed our Cuban Mix sandwich, it's a shame you thought our cafe con leche was just 'so-so'. In what ways could we make it better for you? What would you add to it? I look forward to hearing back from you. We're always looking to 'wow' our customers, so any feedback you have would be very much appreciated! We hope you will return— I know we can show you an even better experience.
