You could easily drive by the Village Gourmet (as we actually did) but the customer service and food were excellent. Don't expect linen table clothes but the food comes out quick, hot and tasty. While they did not have sparkling wine, they did have beer, white and red. I ordered the breakfast burrito that was very good and it came with potatoes. Oddly, they did not have sour cream. My friend got the lobster bisque and Tavernier (fresh mozzarella, imported prosciutto, tomato and fresh basil and drizzled with virgin olive oil and gently warmed on fresh focaccia bread), which after sampling hers, I regretted not ordering what she did. For the price and quality, I would highly recommend trying it out.

This place is our very favorite in the Florida Keys! Each year we're so excited to return and taste our favorites off the menu and visit Bucko! Every single item we've tried has been AMAZING and we're never disappointed. They treat you right every time and Bucko finds his way right into your heart. :o) We recommend the blackened grouper omelette, berry pancakes, deluxe pizza, lobster bisque along with the shrimp and bacon omelette! We get so hooked on our favorites that it's hard to try something else! Definitely visit this place for a meal if you're in Islamorada or just passing through!

The Village Gourmet was our first stop in the keys. Great decision! We were hungry, and it was yummy! I had the fish tacos (more like a burrito). They were spicy and delicious! My wife had the special -- a mouth watering French dip. We each had beers. The staff was super friendly and laid back. So glad we found it on Trip Advisor -- we never would have otherwise. It looks like an unassuming Italian restaurant in a little strip mall from the street. It looks like a deli when you walk in. But its name is correct: it's a little gourmet joint with all kinds of delicious treats on the menu. We went back the next day for lattes and a chocolate croissant and to meet the mascot, an old golden retriever named Bucko. Great place!

We return every time we visit the Keys for our favorite sandwich, the Grouper Reuben. The fish is fresh and perfectly cooked and served on grilled rye. We ask for it blackened with extra Russian dressing and a salad on the side. It's the first and last meal we have every visit. We introduced our 26 year old son to The Village Gourmet this time and he loved it as much as we do. Very little seating inside, but nice patio outside. Not at all fancy, but our focus is purely on the food. Also, you can't beat the price. The 3 of us had dinner with one drink and a slice of delicious key lime pie for $45!

Stopped in for dinner on a lark. Enjoyed the most amazing Italian meal along with excellent wine and casual, warm and friendly family type service. Meal along with wines, desert and service were exceptionally superb. A must place to enjoy while In the keys. Do not pass it by simple because it may look like a deli. There is a backyard dining room just like you would have at home.
