I was staying down the street and looking for a breakfast spot. I stumbled on this place. I LOVED IT. Small local place that seemed to be the spot for everyone to stop in for something to go. Or to hang out. Nicest people ever....More

I normally just get my coffee there . But over the last few months I've had a lot of nice lunches in there I think it's the best Cuban food in Key West

Great bread, Cuban coffee, sausage, fried plantains. Close to West marine in Stock. Skip the hyped places and go here for that food, nice folks.

Just had dinner at this local favorite. Authentic, genuine Cuban food, reasonably priced with a lovely staff. Lots of parking. Try the Ropa Vieja and the roast chicken. The vaca frita is sometimes available as a moth-watering special and the seafood is fresh.
