This neighborhood Bodega is great for grabbing a sandwich on Cuban bread for breakfast or lunch, getting a cup coffee or better yet, have a Con Leche. Just a great place.

When you come down the street at 7 am, you will notice a line of cars parked on the side in each direction. As you get closer to this corner market, you will soon notice a lot of locals, men, women, young, old, professionals and tradesmen. When you walk in the door of 5 brothers, you will then know you...

This was just around the corner from where we stayed in Eaton Street. It was a great find, fab food and authentic. Great prices.

I ride my bike past other Cuban coffee spots to go here. This is a family run small grocery that has been here since 1978. Breakfast and lunch sandwiches are also excellent and make sure you try some Cuban toast with your con leche.

I love to grab my sandwich (the midnight) and café con leche and go the few blocks to the cemetery for a nice, quiet lunch. Five Brothers is a place where the locals eat. Not fancy, just good.

We tried many places and many different type of cuban sandwiches and by far 5 Brothers was the best. Not to mention several other authentic cuban delights. Forgo the others and try the best right off. You will be glad you did.

When last in Key West I found The Five Brothers and have never had a sandwich like I got there since. I took my partner here for an awesome Cuban Sandwich and Cuban coffee. We sat on the bench outside watching the world drive by as the resident Key West chickens pecked around our feet looking for our scraps. Wasn't... More

I went there for the first time last month and could not get over how delicious their Café con Leche, Media Noche sandwich (Midnight sandwich) and the Fried Conch Fritters were. We went back the next day on our way back to Miami. I look forward to visiting them again next August.

My family stayed one block from the restaurant and were excited to visit The Five Brothers. The coffee is exceptional. The food, however, is not worth your time. I have had real Cuban sandwiches. These sandwiches are nothing more than flat, flavorless messes. The young lady who took our order was rude; apparently she needs to find a job away... More

The Cafe Con Leche is fantastic and you can't get a better Cuban sandwich anywhere. During our visit many locals were there picking up lunch, which is always a great sign.
