“Fantastic!!!”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Based on the other TripAdvisor reviews we decided to try Caroline's Cafe and we couldn't have been more thrilled. OK, if we hadn't been quite so close to one of the fans it might have been just a tiny bit better. But the setting was perfect. We had a great view of the people passing on Duval St. and the food and service were awesome. First time we've tried conch fritters, but we couldn't visit Key West without trying them... and they were great. My wife had a shrimp pasta dish that was perfect. Our son had a burger that was perfect, and BIG. I had the Spicy Cajun Jambalya and it was... wait for it... it was... perfect! The Jambalaya was so good that I wanted to go have it again the next night.

I know the word has been over used in this review, but Caroline's Cafe was just about perfect.

Thank you for pointing us in the right direction TripAdvisor.com.

“Great spot!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

We did Carolines one night for dinner, and were very satisfied. The food was good with a good price. The service also was very good. Try the lettuce wraps!

“Worth another visit”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Was in Key West last nite for Fantasy Fest and decided to try Carolines for something to eat. We were very pleased with our choice. Great service, the food was really good, and the price was lower then we expected. I was rather shocked they only charged 8.99 for a cheessteak with fries, so I really wasnt expecting much. The food came to the table and I have to say they didnt cut any corners on portions or quality. My girlfriend had a salad (9.99) that had chicken and pecans and again, there was no shortage of that. Along with a good view of Duval and all the festivities it was a good stop.
