WHERE TO FIND CUBAN COFFEE IN KEY WEST

The New Year is officially upon us, and what better way to start the new year (and your vacation) than with a nice warm cup of coffee! Here in Key West we don’t just drink regular coffee, we locals usually start our day with a nice big cup of Cuban Coffee, also known as Café Con Leche. Café Con Leche is essentially a shot of Cuban espresso, steamed milk, and a few spoons of sugar. I had my first cup when I was about 15 and have drank it nearly every morning since! So, if you want to drink like a local, here are my top 3 recommended spots to grab a Cuban Coffee!

THE CABANA OFFERS A LUSH ESCAPE FROM REALITY

Working and hanging in Key West is two different worlds.  But beginning my career at Key West’s newest hotel, Havana Cabana At Key West, changed things for me.  Meeting people on vacation is fun!  This is the old Inn At Key West, a hotel that was destroyed in the recent hurricane and emerged as this new gem!
