We ended up eating several meals here. Everything we tried was wonderful but if you can only go there once then I highly recommend the Lobster Reuben.

Had breakfast here....breakfast sandwich and an omelet. Both were good. Dined on the porch and was very relaxing and a good view of the street traffic. Service was friendly.

Rarely does one discover a breakfast and lunch cafe across a corner from a historic and very popular tourist draw, in this case the Hemingway House, but Six-Toed Cat earns its stripes, so to speak, and then some. My wife and I enjoyed a great late breakfast at Six-Toed and it was delicious. She ordered regular French toast and it... More

This is to thank you for the warm welcome, the wonderful service and the excellent food we experienced when Azura docked nearby and we disembarked to explore! Cannot recommend this place enough! :-)

This is definitely a local place. We had breakfast on the front porch. Service was good and the food was good. They also serve lunch. You should give it a try when in Key West!

I got the omelet with spinach and there was a good amount of spinach. My son got eggs and there were plenty plus lots of toast. Good sized lemonade with one refill. We got a nice table in the shade and the waitress was friendly and fast.

Dropped in after kids were at Hemingway house. Latte was perfect and spicy shrimp in spinach wrap was the best I've ever had. Cannot fault the service either. Very efficient.

After having breakfast at the ever popular Blue Heaven we passed this place on our way back to the hotel. It is of course named for Hemingway's famous cat and sits opposite his house. We enjoyed everything about STC, Any (the owner?) and the waiter Kelly especially... he knows his business. Everything was ever bit as good as Blue Heaven... More
