Next to Hemingway house, food and staff were great! We came here twice during our five day stay at the Lighthouse court hotel.

Good-sized portions, fresh ingredients, and good coffee (with attentive server who refilled often). Southwest omelet & Key West Bennedict were both good. Minus one star because ketchup was in Heinz bottles but was definitely not Heinz (unless it had turned sour, although we tried 2 different bottles).

Six of us stopped off here after visiting the Hemingway house and seeing the six toed cats in the house and grounds. Sat outside we had our first taste of Key lime pie with a coffee, with free top up. Service was excellent and the salt rub in the rest rooms was amazing.

Went here for Sunday brunch. The food was quite good. The service a little slow, but acceptable. Nice selection of entrees and fresh squeezed orange juice mimosas.

Excellent menu for breakfast or lunch. Great prices, good service and be prepared to wait not too many tables but they are accommodating to get more chairs if needed or anytihng else. Love ti here you can also people watch as you eat if you like. Great for families with children. You will love it.

We love this place. Excellent for breakfast and lunch or just coffee. We ate breakfast here everyday for the week we were down there. I think they were getting sick of us! Waiters/waitresses were exceptional and very very friendly as usual. Highly recommend going here. Can't wait to visit again.

We had the best breakfast here on our trip to the keys. The food was great and the service was perfect, both waiters were working together to make sure everyone was taken care of, great teamwork. A cute quaint little cafe experience with a local feel. I recommend stopping by before or after visiting the Hemingway Home which is in... More

Nice, quiet place for breakfast. We always enjoy stopping by to sit outside and enjoy the nice start for the day. Food is always fresh and well prepared.
