    We loved this place so much we came back three times! Get the key lime pie...I don't even like it and I thought it was delicious! Chicken salad for kind is a great option for a non fish lover!

    Omg! So good! AWESOME SETTING & atmosphere. The BLT Benedict is to die for. Shrimp and grits are great as well. Their key lime pie rocks! Mimosas and bloodys are good too. They use fresh squeezed oj.

    Without a doubt one of the best restaurants I've been to ever. Beautiful atmosphere and food. Banana bread is incredible, definitely go for the key lime pie as well. Photo is "after" on the pie : )

    Best breakfast on the Island! Be prepared to wait at least an hour but well worth it. Use the time to browse next door at Besame Mucho or hang at the bar & catch some live music.

    Best breakfast in Key West! Whatever you order (breakfast..heck, lunch also) you should ask for a side of the famous Key Lime Hollandaise. Spectacular. They are known for their various egg benedicts.

    Had the local lobster special. Made the same as their yellow tail snapper, it was amazing. The cappalenni was great. Their Key Lime pie is good though its meringue, I prefer whipped cream.

    If you want a casual (and shady) outdoor cafe, this is the place to go! Get there early and be sure to try the mahi mahi ! Caprese salad was yummy but overpriced, good selection of wines.

    Desserts: Lime Pie and Banana Heaven were good. As for the main dishes, only yellowtail was good enough and all the 3 others (chicken, pasta, BBQ shrimps) were not exiting at all. Ordinary place
