We were looking for a lunch place between Marathon and Key West, but it was the Friday of the Key West Poker Run. Most of the TripAdvisor recommended places along the road were either filled with bikers, closed for vacation, or whatever.
TripAdvisor has a "near me now" mobile option, and suggested Kaya Island Eats. We were still 15 miles from Key West, so their address confused us. We called them, and they told us where they were located, so we were able to find it easily. It is not in Key West, but 15 miles before then. The manager said they are the very first address with a Key West zip code, and TA required them to use the city associated to their zip.
We were very pleased with our lunches. I had the roasted tomato soup and it was divine! A friend and I had grilled grouper sandwiches, and our husbands enjoyed lunch specials of grilled chicken over pasta, or shrimp kebabs. They were not very crowded, probably due to the poker run. The interior is very nice, and since they were not crowded, we got to look at all the different table tops. They are wrapped with large, colorful photos of sea life. Gorgeous!
Will definitely consider stopping here again on our next visit to the Keys.
