My husband found this place while searching for open breakfast restaurants one morning. Apparently before 9am, Key West is pretty dead as the place gets cleaned and the drunks get ushered off the streets and into their hotel rooms to sleep it off. Needless to say, finding this place was a godsend. Neither of us are coffee drinkers, so I... More

One of our first stops in the morning when we visit Key West is a trip to the Cuban Coffee Queen shop. It's a stand right next to Turtle Krawls and Dante's inferno. The coffee is amazing and the two days that we went the "ice" cubes were made from frozen coffee. What an amazing touch to keep our iced... More

My last day in Key West, I decided to check out this place. SO glad I did!!! The Caliente sandwich, rice & beans and iced coffee were outstanding! I highly recommend experiencing them. I took my food and enjoyed it by the boat docks on a beautiful Key West mid afternoon. I'll definitely return for more next trip!

Stopped here for breakfast before our snorkel adventure. Food was good and coffee was hot, strong and sweet, just as a colada should be.

Great Cuban coffee, friendly service and mainland prices- a tasty bargain meal for breakfast or lunch. Consider it takeout because there are only 4 benches and they stay busy. Sandwiches are large- you probably won't finish so split your order.

You can find this charming little piece of coffee royalty on the far western part of old town Key West. This "hut" is a incredible selection of foods and coffees to serve most ardent caffeine folks out there. The food, fruit smoothies, and smiles are always great. I can't figure out WHY someone would go to a Starbucks etc etc,... More

We walked from our hotel on Duval about a mile to this location. It was a nice worthwhile walk! It seemed to be 'the place to be'...the owner knew people by name and knew what they order. His energy is tremendous which must be from the great coffee! My husband and I walked each day of our vacation just to... More

We've been here many times. Harbour location is a great take-out option and the downtown location offers shaded seating. We've had breakfast and lunch and have enjoyed both. We usually get the Sunrise Special, which is half a Key Wester breakfast sandwich on Cuban bread with a Cafe con leche . Their Cafe con leche seems to be their most... More
