A true locals’ favorite for breakfast and lunch, 5 Brothers is an Old Town institution.

5 Brothers Grocery and Sandwich shop is located on a corner in Old Town Key West. There you will find a tiny store packed with products – many of which are used in the preparation of their homemade food. This is a friendly place where city workers, police, tradesmen, and Old Town residents mingle, grab a newspaper, and enjoy some of the most satisfying sandwiches.

Each morning the local crowd pours in for the best Cuban coffee and breakfast sandwiches. The cafe con leche (Cuban espresso with steamed milk) is strong and flavorful. Enjoy it with a Cuban cheese toast or other breakfast sandwich and you’ll know why it seems that all of Old Town frequents this little shop.

If it is busy, and usually it is, a coffee line forms on the left side. If you don’t want coffee, head over to the cash register and place your order. 5 Brothers serves one of the best Cuban Mixes on the island – a sandwich with ham, pork, swiss, lettuce, tomato, mustard, and mayo served on Cuban bread and pressed & toasted on a hot press machine.

Location: 930 Southard Street
