RED Quick Bite #81: Cuban Coffee Queen in Key West

We had a great breakfast at Cuban Coffee Queen on our first morning in Key West for the 30th Anniversary Hemingway Key West Sunset Run & Paddleboard Race. This place is just off the water and steps away from The Waterfront Brewery that we covered in Episode 72 last week.    It looks like a tiny little shack from the outside, but the line is so long there all the time.  Why?  An incredibly friendly staff and amazing food and coffee!

The Cuban Breakfast Burrito was so flavorful!  It was so big, we split it.  It had three eggs, American cheese, rice, beans, and mojo pork on a grilled tortilla.  You can choose your own meat, and they have ham, bacon, sausage, chorizo, turkey or pork roll to choose from as well.  But the mojo pork is where it’s at for this breakfast burrito!  That mojo pork had citrus spices and the meat was tender and delicious in this burrito.  This huge breakfast offering is only $8.50.

We washed it down with Cuban coffee.  Cuban espresso with steamed milk was such a great way to start the day.  This beverage is also offered with caramel or vanilla flavoring, too.  It warms the soul and charged us up for the day!

Come wait in the fast-moving line for incredible Cuban breakfast!
