went from our hotel to look for breakfast. found this place and proceeded in. Got seated and ordered. Food was okay, service wasn't bad, had fun watch the chickens and birds up close as I was seated next to a railing. View was nice over...the beach. Not a spectacular place but a place to chow down and get back to the mission of fun.More

Enjoyed a lovely lunch at the beach cafe in the sunshine! Service was really good and the gluten free pizza was excellent! Drinks were also delish.

We had a late lunch on a busy day. It took quite a while to get drinks, which seemed odd as we just ordered draft beer. Food was good - salad was fresh and filling. Would definitely go back.

Nice breakfast spot on the beach. Good place to visit just before or just after visiting the Southernmost Point. Have had the Corned Beef Hash previously, but chose the Breakfast Tacos and the Southernmost Toast. Both were delicious. Service was fine, and the atmosphere is...the real star of the show.More

Had a lovely dinner here in a laid back atmosphere. It was nice eating so close to the beach and watching the evening close in. We liked the decor of turquoise and white, with fairy lights on the pillars. Had a couple of lovely cocktails...- margaritas and watermelon mule which were nice. Then had mains which were the nachos (slightly too much cheese for my daughters liking), Smokey burger (delicious) and catch of the day grilled with Jasmin rice and ginger/chilli broccoli (delicious). Well pitched service and overall very enjoyable.More

On vacation with the family on this trip. We did not have reservations but they seated us in under 10 minutes. The atmosphere is very nice and we all enjoyed our meals. Service was a tad off que but we contributed that to our group...of 11. Our table staff was very friendly and courteous.More

We ate here for dinner. The ambience was great - right on the beach. The waitstaff was not helpful at all and could basically tell us nothing about the menu. The food was pretty good though. There was a table next to us with a...little girl that was coughing the entire time. Even though this was an outdoor restaurant, it was unnerving in Covid times. We asked to be moved and the waitress did nothing - even though there were many open tables. Not sure if we would return.More

First time Key West visitor!! This quaint cafe sits right on the beach. The atmosphere of the whole area is awesome! We were promptly seated and a very nice waitress came with our water and asked for our orders. The key lime colada is a...MUST!!!More
