A Little About Pepe’s

Pepe’s Cafe, established in 1909 is the eldest eating house in the Florida Keys. Located on the old commercial waterfront area of Caroline Street, we are open 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

At breakfast time we serve everything from traditional breakfast and build-your-own omelets, to pancakes with fresh fruit to creamed chipped beef.  We use real butter, jumbo eggs, and Hormel bacon.  We make homefries and have great grits.  We make our own granola which is served with low-fat yogurt and fresh fruit.  Our homemade sweet breads are a treat and you may want to accompany your meal with a fresh squeezed orange juice or a cup of Chock Ful O’ Nuts coffee or a Screwdriver made with fresh squeezed orange juice.

At lunch time we have everything from grilled cheese sandwiches to burgers to fish sandwiches (grilled or blackened).  The steak sandwich is popular… chunks of tender beef grilled and topped with mushrooms, onions, peppers and cheese on a hoagie roll.  All soups and chile are housemade.

Dinner… well, we are a steakhouse.  We cut our own NY Strips and Filets to order.  Our customers love our ‘Dinner For Two’… a 15 oz NY Strip topped with two center cut pork chops, smothered with mushrooms, onions, and peppers, served with a potato and fresh vegetables.  Every evening we prepare the fresh catch at least 5 ways and we have several other meals to choose from. See our menu.

Our cooks prepare several breakfast, lunch and dinner specials daily.

All of our desserts are housemade. Our Key Lime Pie is nice and tart, on a graham crust and served with whipped cream.  Other favorites are the Coconut Cream Pie, Chocolate Brownie Pie and Apple Crisp served warm with ice cream.

If you are looking for a relaxed laid back restaurant and bar, this is the place for you.  You will see the same faces, year after year, and there are lots of reasons for that.
