I've been here many times, but today was especially good. My friend and I had just finished a triathlon and we decided to split a meal. No drama, everything perfect and always delicious. Take a look at the photo :-)

Excellent food. The Uzbek bread was great! The young waiter was super friendly and eager to explain the menu and make recommendations about visiting Key West. We had lamb kebabs and grilled shrimp and enjoyed everything. We came for a late dinner, it was a little hard to find because it's not well lit.

We had lunch at Kennedy Cafe on 10/31/16. When we looked at the menu, we were happy to see the variety of items they had: Mediterranean (Greek, Turkish), Italian, Pizza, and American dishes. I ordered the Chicken Shwarma ($8.99) and my husband ordered Lamb Shwarma (also $8.99) on homemade Uzbek bread. Both were excellent and came in a sauce with... More

This is the second time I have visited the cafe and it is better than ever. I had the Gyro platter which was piled high with meat and included a delicious salad and large pita bread. For dessert i had the balaclava which was huge and had lots of nutty filling. The portions are very generous and the food is... More

Got tired of the so-so "free breakfast" at our hotel. Went looking for a place to have breakfast and noticed the Kennedy Café in a strip mall. This is in the new town section of Key West, near the high school. Breakfast was great, we are from the North so grits are not on our breakfast menus, here they had... More

Dropped on this one and had a great breakfast. Went back for an evening meal and had the kebab combo platter. It was great and very tasty. Very reasonable price and good waiter service. Overall a great experience. Will be going there for breakfast the rest of our stay.

They have never gotten an order wrong. I live how quite it is compared to most places and have they are nice and calm when spoken to. They are never to loud because restaurant is quite and They can speak English and Spanish if need to do so. There table, floors, and dishes are clean and shinny.

We stopped in one night after our daughters late practice. The name Kennedy café was not too exciting although we will definitely be returning. The food was a big hit with the entire family. I had a Gyro while my daughter enjoyed chicken Parmesan and the husband enjoyed sausage and peppers sandwich. None of us could finish our meal especially... More

Located in a small strip shopping center, Kennedy Cafe offers a variety of entrees. We ordered kebabs and felafel. The serving was generous, so much so that I had lunch leftover for the next day. And the homemade Uzbek bread was off the charts delicious.

Thank OMST
