We took a spontaneous day trip to Key West, a scenic four-hour drive down south from Miami. Key West is really slow-paced and laid-back, I could easily spend a whole day wandering on the island and doing nothing.
Driving out early as 6 AM from our hotel, it was a bliss to have found this cute little cafe on our way. This is the Key Largo store of the Miami chain bakery, remember to make a stop if you need a cup of coffee and probably a croissant too.
Great place to take a stop on US Route 1.
Don’t forget to take a sip from a coconut when you’re on the island.
The Southernmost point
We all know how long the waiting line could be, but we all have to check this one off our list.
A hole in the wall place with a deli, a window that you place your order from, and a few picnic tables as outdoor seating. Good to stop for a quick bite.
A must-see in Old Town Key West. It’s both fun and enlightening to take a stroll through the legendary writer’s mansion with the company of stories behind everything, and of course, the six-toed cats.
There was even a “Six-Toed Cafe” down the street.
This tiny island is nothing short of refreshing colors.
Great spot to chill out with an extensive collection of coffee.
One thing I promise you won’t miss on Key West is the rooster – we even had one jump onto our table while we were at Cuban Coffee Queen.
Easy to tell by the name, this beautiful restaurant resides right beside the water.
This is quite a one-of-a-kind dining experience. We took a ferry to a private island called Sunset Keys and there it was, the most romantic setting for dinner.
Yet another breakfast spot that didn’t disappoint.
