“My favorite new lunch spot in KW”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

I noticed Paseo had gone to #1 in Key West virtually overnight and upon dining there I understood why. The slow braised pork wrap was incredibly delicious and my wife's salad with grilled fish was also spectacular. Yes the great food is no secret, at lunchtime the place is mobbed and it can take half an hour for the food to arrive at crunch time. If you allow your mind to be on island time all can be forgiven. Don't forget to order the grilled corn with the Cotijo cheese and Pimenton side dish, probably the best ear you'll ever have,

“A delicious lunch”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

This is a charming and unassuming place to have a wonderful, authentic Caribbean meal. Both me and my vegan wife were very happy with the menu options. We'd come back!

“Great place out of the way”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Went for lunch and had the Cuban sandwich and roasted corn. It is just like advertised on TripAdvisor. The sandwich was delicious and the corn is nothing like you have tasted before. Just a neat place, even if a little out of way.

“Lunch at the number one place”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

We shared a wrap and for an ear of corn on the cob. Both were delicious! And plenty for two. The ,ones can be long, and they were closed Monday and Tuesday. So plan ahead. The corn is really something you have to try. Not sure how they get it cooked to perfection and the seasoning is amazing. Not spicy not, but really tasty. Everyone shares the few tables, so don't be shy. Well worth a try while in key West.

“Worth the walk”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

We walked a number of blocks to find this little spot off the beaten track. The corn as everyone said is a must to taste, most unusual but delicious. The Caribbean sandwich just great. Can easily be shared because you might want to try something else. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked yummy. Limited seating. Staff very pleasant. Busy all the time. Very very casual.
