Consistently good salads ad sandwiches with homemade baked goods and a wide selection of drinks. Great to bring back to your hotel or to the beach.

Whit’s frozen custard- delicious with a ton of toppings -huge portions! Also fantastic Cuban sandwich- and if the owners are in when you go, make sure you chat to them, the nicest couple - we will be back next time we visit Key West

Absolutely! Tell us what kind of salad you like, and we will see what we can do. You can always get just egg, tuna, or chicken salad without the bread as well. Come see us!

The Courthouse Deli & Whit's Frozen Custard is a neighborhood deli serving our beloved locals and tourists alike. The bench outside the Courthouse Deli is so famous it has it's own Facebook Page. We serve made to order sandwiches, have a large selection of beer & wine, and have recently added the most delicious frozen custard on earth! We believe in making everything fresh daily, we source our bread locally, and you can count on our staff to be friendly and professional. Need simple grocery items to make a meal? We have milk, bread, eggs, coffee, etc. as well as meat and cheeses sliced to order.
