You must stop by at Mam's Best Food! Ilana the chef makes the most delicious and fresh falafel and there is so much to choose from on the menu. Very affordable and fresh! If you like middle eastern food this is the place for you. It's casual and right off Duval St. Having a kosher place to eat in Key... More

What a lovely experience! A little tent in front of an open kitchen where Mam (Ilana) cooks up delicious Mediterranean kosher food from a surprisingly large menu. Only open to 6:30 pm though but worth going to for lunch and an early dinner. Super friendly and generous. Great prices too.

They never seem to be open. When you luck on seeing the establishment serving, do try it out. This is unique food and that's something to say for the island that offers so much in the way of good food. Good luck

I always wanted to go here while we stay in Key West. This time I did go for the breakfast for the dish that is made with eggs and with a spicy tomato sauce as I remembered having it in Tel Aviv. It was good and the staff were very friendly. Would recommend for a unique experience.

I was biking up Duval looking for authentic food. Wasn't really sure what I wanted. I happened to turn down Petronia and stumbled upon this place. I've never had authentic Israeli food before and decided to give it a try. It was amazing! I got the Jerusalm sandwich and ate every last bite of it. The people were friendly and... More

If you love authentic Israeli food this is the place to go. My wife and I never expected to find this in Key West. The Falafel, Kabobs, Hummus and Babaganoosh were terrific. Nothing fancy but worth the trip. Three tables in front of a kitchen on a side street off of Duval.

My wife and I just got back from Key West, where we were pleasantly surprise to find a kosher restaurant. And then we were blown away with the service, the quality of the food, and the atmosphere. We had dinner there one weeknight, and ordered catered meals for shabbat. Extraordinarily fair prices and food was ready as promised. Great customer... More

This is a glatt kosher mid-eastern outdoor restaurant in Key West (of all places- who would have thought?). From A to Z, a great experience. The service was friendly and attentive, the food delicious and served in abundant portions and the prices more than fair. They also have a breakfast menu.Had I known that this place existed before starting out... More
