We took pix and the southernmost point and then stumbled on this cafe at breakfast-time. What a find. Great outdoor seating, delicious drinks. Wonderful views - it is quintessential key west. The food was fabulous. Don't miss this place.

We ate breakfast here 3 of 5 days. Bloody Mary was biggest and best we found! Cuban Benedict was different but good. They put some BBQ sauce in the pork, which I wasn’t expecting. Personally would have liked better with out that. Every breakfast that...came out looked so good. Never a bad meal or even a bad section of any meal. Service was friendly and food came out hot and very quick. They have breakfast service down! Want a specialty coffee? Well they don’t have it in the restaurant, but directly outside of host station is a Starbucks coffee window. Not a full Starbucks, but they do make everything on their menu. No additional charge to bring inside and enjoy with the rest of your meal. We will go back here again, no doubt. Oh, and some great people watching!More

We stopped here for lunch because we love an ocean view! The food, service, and views were great! The nachos were great and so was the grouper sandwich and the catch of the day! The key lime colada was fantastic!!!

Great breakfast spot. Got seated right away, no waiting. Restaurant is right on the beach with a beautiful ocean view. Wait staff was friendly, service was good. Went with two friends, one had the pancakes which were “ok” in her opinion but she really enjoyed...her side of bacon. Friend number two had an everything bagel with lox and said it was very good. I had the avocado mousse trio and it was excellent! Potion sizes were very large and filling. Over all would recommend to anyone in the area looking for a nice breakfast place.More

Here I am again at this public beach/private cafe, and unfortunately I must report that three times again and again after my review warning all of you how lousy the head-slamming music is here, they are of course playing it again, and it is not...even 10 am! I am a local who has come here over 12 years, once a week for only 2 hours — the beach is beautiful and its staff is wonderful. So, the problem is most likely the coffee shop or any new manager who plays music without abs soul or melody whatsoever. All you hear is hammering beats, trying to drum up business literally because even if the restaurant and bar is busy there are unusually less than 2 people getting coffee. Guess what the answer is folks! CLOSE the coffee shop and get a better overall manager who comes up with better things to make people actually want to be here than give them a headache. This is a vicious catch-22, and the answer is not to ignore me! If they actually listened to he guess who would be glad, not just me abs you but them too! Please spare yourself until they wise-up. See me trying to help everyone. I am not complaining but showing you the way…More

Service, atmosphere, and food were all amazing. Best coconut shrimp ever tasted! Tons of yummy grilled shrimp on my salad. Attentive and efficient server made all the deference. Roosters patrolling made for a unique dining experience.

We went there for a late night snack and drinks. The service was good, the view was great, the drinks were on point. We had the Key West Lemonade I would recommend. The only slight disappointment was that the food was somewhat over cooked. We...had chicken fingers and fries with coconut shrimp. The food was still good but it was a bit over cooked and dry. I would still recommend this place because everything else was great.More

Rude Bartender. Brewfest was going on in their backyard. Bar closes at 8pm……… well actually I was standing at the bar and waiting only to be told they close at 8pm. It was 752. Lol. They close at 8 but stop serving at 750. in a Saturday night when you have over 100 people in your backyard.More
