The best fish tacos and slaw! Delicious key lime pie! A small hut delivers amazing food to enjoy on outside picnic benches surrounded by foliage and colorful, whimsical pottery, etc.

Had the Fries and Fish (mahi-mahi). Pretty much fish and chips but it is really superb in its coconut crust.... More

We stopped here for dessert and found a variety of treats made with key lime. The staff made us some fresh coffee and we tried a couple of different pies, one with meringue and one plain, both delicious! Open late, would stop again!

Wow! I'm not sure where to start a review of a little place that has a walk-up window and some of the freshest, most delicious fish around! The gal who runs the place knows what she's doing....fresh fish, homemade fries, creamy coleslaw....and cold, thirst-quenching smoothies! I can honestly say that the conch fritters we had at Key Lime Cafe were... More

This little place was hard to find, but the best cracked conch ever!!!! When you see a whole bunch of metal art work, it's right there! They have a little sign under the metal art work sign, Key Lime Products.We were there March 27th. It's a must eat for fresh eats here!!!!

We really enjoyed our easy lunch here on the way to our resort from Miami. Super friendly owner and she gave us great advice for our stay too! Fresh fish and tasty tacos. She even gave my girls some shells. :)

Cracked conch and fish baskets were fresh and very tasty. Cook takes her work seriously and asked how everything was. Smoothies enjoyed too. Funky gift shop and garden with picnic tables made a fun and relaxed setting. Good stop!

We stopped on our way back from Key West for some key lime pie. It was the best key lime pie we had while in the keys. We were on a quest to find the best, and this place had it! It was rich, creamy, buttery crust, and delicious! My only regret is not buying a whole pie!
