My kids and I stopped here for a quick lunch. They offered about 20 soups...all looked interesting! I ended up trying the Garlic Tomato Bisque, which was delicious.
The counter girls were friendly and helped us place our orders.
My only complaint is that my bread had mold on it. It was only on half of the sandwich. When I pointed it out to the manager, she insisted that it wasn't moldy - that the bread was baked fresh daily. However, I have been in the restaurant business for over 25 years, and I know what mold looks like. They offered to make me another sandwich (I had already eaten half, and was full). They didn't offer me a refund or a complimentary dessert or anything else.
Honestly, I wasn't that upset about the mold. I still enjoyed half of my sandwich, and I totally understand how bread can mold quickly in that heat. I was more annoyed with the fact that they argued with me and told me it was avocado!

Cafe Moka

Reviewed By HowlnBubba - Key Largo, Florida

I actually just stopped here while running errands in need of coffee and breakfast. It's a nice, laid back place with lots of art and photos. Counter service was fast and friendly, and the coffee was very good. delivery of the food was a little slow, but it was an unusually well-prepared croissant sandwich. A number of customers availed themselves of the free WiFi in comfort and undisturbed. All-together a pleasant stop, and I'd go back when in the area.

This was the quintessential Florida Keys key lime pie experience. I enjoyed a slice of the whipped cream topped, smooth and creamy version of the pie in a zen-like garden which was very quiet and cool during my visit.

We stopped in here after reading reviews and felt terrible as the cafe had not yet opened after the hurricane. We still had some pie which was awesome and hope the owners are able to get the restaurant up and running again soon. Best wishes for 2018 :)

Dunkin Donuts

Reviewed By T C M - Beach Haven, New Jersey

We just spent 5 days in Key West and had our flight home postponed for two days, so we figured this might be a good chance to check out the Islamorada and Key Largo area. Ultimately we found a hotel in Key Largo and each morning went to this DD for coffee. The coffee was exactly what you would expect - quality DD!! The service? Awful. Mind you - we visited twice. The first time they started to hand us the wrong order and failed to toast or cut in half (per request) our bagel. This is a simple process for the employee to follow at all DDs.....you push a button on the register/computer for each thing like "toast" or "cut in half"......neither thing done. The second day.....really simple order at the drive through. "Two large coffees with cream and sugar"......at the window I was first handed a bag of munchkins with no coffee. When I pointed out it was the wrong order, the coffees followed, with cream, no sugar. I know this is simple and not usually something I even concern myself with; but the staff wasn't even pleasant either visit.

Harriette's Restaurant

Reviewed By klr0411

We visited this place on vacation after reading some rave reviews. Honestly, we weren’t too impressed. The muffins were very good, but the other food and coffee were only decent. The cups are what did it for us...very dirty and chipped - gross. Plastic cups aren’t expensive to replace. It sounds simple, but that would have made a big difference for us, since we both generally drink water with our breakfast. We heard other people around us saying similar things. Thanks!

Reviewed By eric p - Boca Raton, Florida

I believe in eating and drink healthy.... This place probably uses the best ingredients... But personally I don't see why things cost so much. I juice daily with organic, so I can see $5 bucks...but not 9-10. The decor is very nice and staff was friendly, great area to sit and relax in the back on the water. Just too expensive for my taste.

What The Fish Rolls & More

A splashing Seafood Shack that offers locally caught, ocean to table bites and other mouth watering dishes. Located next to a canal that leads to the ocean as well as several local business that offer activities such as Cycling, Paddle & Scuba. Three seating areas and island tunes to set the mood. A perfect spot for locals and adventurers looking to try a new spin on the Key's food culture!

This is a very casual place where you can actually eat outside. A few of the tables ate set on a sand floor. Fun! Our family of ten, sons, daughters in law and young grandsons, enjoyed the food. My husband and I tried the shrimp and the crab rolls. Both served with chips. A few others enjoyed the fish rolls as well.
Good for a quick stop on our way to our Marathon Key rental
