Server and hostess seemed annoyed by customers. Breakfast was fine but nothing special. Locals favorite. Don't think they like tourists

We like this place so much we ate breakfast AND dinner here in the same day. There were six of us and we thoroughly enjoyed the food and beverages. Breakfast was plentiful and tasteful. Dinner was just as good as we shared delicious and tender ribs, fish soup and a couple of bottles of wine in a very casual outdoor... More

Wife and I had breakfast here during our first visit to Key West. Our hotel only offered a continental breakfast and we wanted something more substantial. Pepe's did not let us down. Wife had the blueberry French toast with a side of bacon and loved it. I had a simple meal of two eggs over easy and, being as we... More

Daily specials are quite intriguing although we usually just get bacon, eggs, of course the daily bread, grits for husband, and the griddled potato cake for me. Daily breads this visit included egg nog (that's right), peach, pecan pumpkin, and coconut. Warmed on the... More

We love Pepe's and make a point to eat there every year when we visit. Food is delicious and I love the atmosphere of the courtyard as well as inside seating. You can't go wrong eating at Pepe's.

Ended up here after getting coffee at Cuban Coffee Queen which had no seating. The wait was about 30 minutes so grab a newspaper, relax, and enjoy your coffee. The bloody mary was a bit on the small side but flavorful. We had breakfast basics: omlets, bacon, hash and it was all good. Best breakfast we had while visiting. Try... More

Took some friends here and the three of us split the dinner for two. Two chops, one steak, 4 sides. Everyone was full and content. A must do in Key West

We've had breakfast there multiple times even though we've stayed at b&b's beccause the food is so good. They have a nice variety, a bar for breakfast and home made breads that change daily

We had breakfast at Pepe's and it was so delcious. Pancakes were excellent and so was the coffee. Wait staff was very friendly as well. Everyone in the restaurant was really enjoying their food. I'd definitely go back to Pepe's!
