This place is a little hidden back but well worth it. The quality of the coffee and specialty drinks was top notch. The staff was also amazing.

Went in here only because of the reviews about coffee. It was so good, so strong. The Cuban pan bread was delicious too. The only downside was that the employees were in a world of their own inside the kitchen. Not one of them paying...More

I love as so excited and ready for an amazing breakfast from what I had read about this place. Ambience great and coffee was average but the breakfast sandwiches and guava bread were sub par.

Great cafe con leche. Even though it's called Cuban coffee queen, it's run by a couple of South Africans. Great smoothies too.

The Cuban espresso was delicious. Dark and bold as I expected. The service was not the best, somewhat of an attitude by the lady at the window and rushed service. The order was wrong as a result. Would give them another chance the next time...More

Cafe con Leche is worth the line. Cuban honey bagel, don't bother - too messy for on the go. Easy to find. Pleasant staff.

Delicious key west and cuban queen sandwhiches, reasonably priced. 14 people in line on a Wednesday , tells you something. Service was very quick and friendly. Can't wait to go back.

Go hungry! Great little place- we made it our first and last stops of Key West. Coffee is great and sandwiches are even better!

Hands down best coffee ever. Kept going back every day before yoga on the beach! I’m dreaming about how to make it when I get home up north!

We serve up delicious Cuban coffee, breakfast, and lunch fare to a large following of fans here in Key West. Come in the morning for Café con Leche or a Cuban Chocolate Mocha, and make sure to grab some breakfast too. Try favorites such as our Key Wester, which is two eggs, cheese, and your choice of ham, bacon, sausage, or pork roll sandwiched between two delicious pieces of pressed Cuban bread. It’s fantastic!Are you ready for lunch? Try our Famous Tuna Burger, our Turkey Club, or the Havana Rice & Beans. If you want to go lighter, order one of our freshly made salads or one of our delicious smoothies made with sweet tropical fruits.We also deliver! Cuban Coffee Queen is open every day, from 6:30 until sunset. Don’t forget to grab a T-shirt or hat while you’re at Cuban Coffee Queen.
