Never been here before but will be back on a regular basis...everything is homemade. We were given soup samples and went with the Tomato/Feta. Exellcent.

My favorite breakfast spot, consistently great food, changing daily specials, husband and daughter got the breakfast tacos this time and I got the cream cheese and scallion omelette all were delicious, daughter also said THE best key lime pie out of the 7 different varieties she tried on this trip.

The macaroni salad that they offer with their entrees is great. They create a perfect blend of creamy taste and texture that makes this the best I've ever eaten. Their sandwiches are large, and well-prepared. The service was excellent, even though it was extremely busy for lunch and our waitress bounced non-stop from table to table.

A lovely restaurant which a great menu and fantastic staff. Three families with Children from 16 to 8 attended for dinner around 8.00pm. Staff couldn't have been more accommodating. No wait for service or delivery of the food and when it came everything was spot on. Eyes bigger than bellies or portions are out of sync with European diets!! If... More

What a great place for a reasonably priced breakfast. Service was on point. There were several breakfast special options to choose from as well as a full breakfast menu.

A "must visit" in KW!! I'm sure lunch and dinner are super, but we loved our breakfast. My wife had eggs and the usual accompanying items, I had a yogurt/fruit special, we split grits. And enjoyed Bloody Marys. Great little place, super service and KW atmosphere. Definitely a place to go every time in KW!!

We have visited Key West many times & I must say that there is not a better breakfast on the island. Custom omelets and breads are made fresh everyday. Sitting outside with fresh squeezed juices topping off your adult breakfast beverage. And...Last but not least. ..the staff is absolutely outstanding. We have many times gone for breakfast & found ourselves... More

Sounds silly but rarely do I find the perfect BLT...Toasted perfectly, crispy bacon, fresh sliced tomato, crunchy lettuce...It's hard to get the classics right in a world of "gourmet" experiences...Thank you!
