Forget Starbucks, this is the place to go and get your morning coffee. This place is a Key West institution.

Stopped here one morning before our excursion for the day and the breakfast sandwich I had was delicious!!! The Cuban bread was out of this world along with the coffee. My boyfriend had a smoothie which was also delicious. Very cute shop :-)

Cuban Coffee Queen! We absolutely loved this coffee! Interesting fact is, you actually TASTE the difference between good, healthy, raw ground on site coffee as opposed to store bought grounds. Delicious, delicious place that also offers traditional Cuban breakfasts, smoothies, snacks and more!

Locally roasted beans! Outside seating. Meals available. It's a real change of pace from national coffee chains. Laid back & easy going. We start our day with a cup of local coffee!

We serve up delicious Cuban coffee, breakfast, and lunch fare to a large following of fans here in Key West. Come in the morning for Café con Leche or a Cuban Chocolate Mocha, and make sure to grab some breakfast too. Try favorites such as our Key Wester, which is two eggs, cheese, and your choice of ham, bacon, sausage, or pork roll sandwiched between two delicious pieces of pressed Cuban bread. It’s fantastic!Are you ready for lunch? Try our Famous Tuna Burger, our Turkey Club, or the Havana Rice & Beans. If you want to go lighter, order one of our freshly made salads or one of our delicious smoothies made with sweet tropical fruits.We also deliver! Cuban Coffee Queen is open every day, from 6:30 until sunset. Don’t forget to grab a T-shirt or hat while you’re at Cuban Coffee Queen. You’ll wish you had when you see folks walking around town with our famous memorabilia.
