Almost anyone that has visited Key West has likely walked by Kermit’s Key Lime Pie Shoppe. Here you can enjoy key lime pie, key lime pi on a stick, and an assortment of other Key Lime goodies. But if you are looking for something more than just dessert, you can now go right next door to Kermit’s Kitchen Cafe and enjoy breakfast or lunch.
This past Saturday our breakfast crew decided to go someplace new to us, so we met at Kermit’s. While we have had plenty of Key Lime Pie from Kermit’s, we have never eaten at the Cafe. The lovely little outdoor seating area, complete with coy pond, is so relaxing and cozy, even on a hot summer day. We found a table and then Pam and I went to the counter to place our orders and pick up coffees.
Pam ordered an egg sandwich with cheese and jalapeños and a side of home fries. Tommy ordered the biscuits and gravy. Steven ordered 2 eggs scrambled with pancakes and sausage. And I ordered two eggs scrambled with bacon, home fries, and toast. Once everything a cooked the staff carried the order out to our table.
Pam was not a huge fan or her sandwich. She thought it was too dry and a bit bland with not enough butter, and the jalapeños were cooked into the eggs rather than being added to the sandwich. Our scrambled eggs with meat plates were good, standard breakfasts. What made it outstanding was the fresh fruit on the side, a combination of sliced bananas, strawberries, citrus and pineapple which gave the plate a great freshness. Tommy thoroughly enjoyed his biscuits and gravy. I think he would have enjoyed some fruit too though. There was a lot of food on all of our plates, and I don’t think anyone finished everything on their plates. And, none of us left hungry!
The coffee was very good and very strong, and we were able to get refills while there. Our meal came to around $40, a steal for 4 people in Key West. While fancier breakfast can be gotten elsewhere, the atmosphere is worth going back again.
The lunch menu is much broader than the breakfast one, with items such as soups, salads, burgers and hotdogs, ribs, chicken fingers, sandwiches and wraps. Most items are priced around $11, so pretty affordable for Key West. We will have to go back for lunch one day soon!
