This place is dope. Totally lives up to its reputation. The barista from Colombia was extremely pleasant to talk to. Her husband is from Cuba, so I guess the coffee must be authentic. The nice people and fine coffee brought me back to the best time of my life in Cuba. They really did. I wish I could figure out... More

We love eating outside on a bench and watching the people....and roosters...walk by. It is a very busy place and gets crowded at mealtimes. There is no indoor seating so some order lunch and eat it elsewhere. Today I went "American" and had a grilled cheese, tomato and tuna sandwich. My husband went the Cuban route and had a breakfast...

This location is usually busier but it's worth the wait. The coffee and food is the perfect little pick me up at any time. The only issue I've encountered was asking what time they close at night when the open sign and flag were still out, the gentleman rudely cut me off and said "We are closed!" And then proceeded...

I start every day with the Cuban Coffee Queen. Their iced coffees are second to none, and even include coffee ice cubes so the great flavor of your coffee isn't watered down. Really, the best coffee in Key West!

This is an excellent choice if you're looking for an inexpensive and good breakfast. We stopped here and split a Key Wester breakfast sandwich while sipping cafe con leche one morning. No wait and good service.

Off the beaten path, but well worth the side trip. Cuban coffee is excellent. We also shared the Key Wester breakfast sandwich and the Cuban Mix sandwich. Both were delicious.

This little coffee place was recommended to us by friends!! Their Cuban americano coffee was perfection! We drink our coffee black, so any bitterness stand out, but I can truly say is we had this at home, I would be there every day!

I stopped by here one morning after reading good reviews about the place. Its located in a weird spot off the main drag. If you didn't know it was there you would miss it. The customer service was good and so was the food. It's worth a try if your in the area.

My girlfriend and I visited here our very first morning in Key West. Wonderful coffee served from a cute, colorful hut. The Cuban sandwiches are really good too. A great first stop before starting our busy day. Highly recommended!

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.
