Another establishment that has changed chefs and ownership. This was a Trip Advisor and personal favorite but the rating has dropped from a Trip Advisor Favorite in 2022 for hood reason. To set the tone for readers, this is a shack, in a cool area...in KW - no table service just a walk up window. Thus when I get charged $30 for a fish sandwich on cuban bread it should be off the charts. The fish, Snapper was so small, I would guess under a 3oz piece. It was tasty but when a walk up no service no utensil’s establishment charges $30 it simple should not only taste good, it should be substantial. The chef told us ownership is focusing on catering to the party boats that leave the harbor. Coincidentally , Fishermans Wharf catered our sunset cruise out of the harbor and this food was not good at all. Just cold dry chicken and cold egg rolls. I hate to see my favorite dining establishments falter but Fishermans Cafe has lost this Key West fan and diner. I write this review after reaching out to ownership and they never responded to my inquiryMore

Our food was outstanding. A little more expensive than I expected but really a great little place. Hung out there and had some cold drinks. It was really great overall. 4 stars only because of cost.

After reading the reviews for this shack we went there as soon as we arrived in key west for a late lunch. Food was amazing and service fantastic. Its a little gem that can easily be missed.

Fabulous shack near key west harbor. Had a grilled red snapper sandwich and a blackened shrimp wrap. Wrap tasted homemade. Tons of huge shrimp. Beans and rice on side were very tasty. Iced tea homemade

My first Cuban coffee and Cubano breakfast sandwich which were excellent. The sandwich was so large - best to share. Eggs, cheese, ham, bacon, pork- wonderful. The coffee is mild, served with foamed milk, but order the large. The small one just isn’t enough and...you’ll want a second.More

I ate breakfast here almost every day in Key West. You must try the cheese grits with lobster meat. Delicious!

We have been coming to KeyWest for a while and never tried this Cafe. We read the reviews on TripAdvisor so thought we would give it a try. We had lunch here and it was really good. My husband had the fish sandwich, blackened and...I had something light which was the cuban toast with cream cheese and jelly. I really enjoyed my selection and husband said fish sandwich was fresh and very tasty. We will be back on our next trip to KeyWest.More

Our second visit. The fish tacos are second to none. On the day we visited, the fish on the fish tacos was snapper. It was very fresh and the portions were very generous. If is is lunch time, I would say that one order of...fish tacos will feed two people.More

We have passed this place by so many times but never at the right time for a meal. We finally had breakfast. We will be back. Cubano egg sandwich was delicious and huge, fresh squeezed OJ was great.

We have a great friend who has the last name "Bucci" and we went by the restaurant Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to buy a shirt for him. No one else had access to the storage where the shirts are and that was disappointing. Especially...when we tried to ask when he would be there and were met with shrugged shoulders. The coffee I got was lovely and I saw tons of beautiful plates of food on the many trips we made. Too bad, that was a gift we looked very forward to giving.More

Great stop before our charter tour. Ordered Cuban breakfast sandwich which was big enough for 2 people. Con Leche coffee was outstanding and fresh. Daughters got ice coffee that was comparable to the big chain shops.
