“Great Breakfast at Fair Price”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Pepe's was a great find on a morning walk in Key West. Small place with seven or so tables inside and a similar number on the patio. It also has a bar (on the patio) that doubles as the area to wait for a table. We had to wait 10-15 minutes for a table, which was a great time to observe the food coming to tables and people watching.

I had blueberry pancakes and companion had an Omelette with fresh baked coconut bread. Both were very good and the serving size was more than ample. The interior is a collection of photos and memorabilia from the beginning of Pepe's, however everything is very clean and tidy.

“Still the best!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Still the best breakfasts and fresh squeezed mimosas in Key West. I always get the specials. Love the food and the ambiance. Can't beat where all the locals go. There's definitely a reason why. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an authentic KW breakfast!

“Perfect place for great Breakfast”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

Get here early, it's always crowded, even in off season. Is it a home in the wall? Yes. Will you wait? Sure. Is it worth it? Absolutely ! Try the bloody Mary's and the eggs Benedict !

“The oldest cafe restaurant in Key West”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We spent a week in Key West and the book and bell boys at the hotel said this was a must visit. When we arrived we managed to get a free booth and were served immediately. The place is nothing to look at however within minutes people were queuing and happy to wait. We had breakfast which was absolutely fine.
If you are visiting Key West then this is a must even if it is just to say you have been there.

“Yummy but expensive.”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Had a wonderful dinner with very strong mojitos (9.25 each). A bit pricey but the food was good and the location was excellent!
