How to Find Key West Coffee Shops

Or, you’re just tired, and you want your plain old cup of joe. Whichever way you sway, we’ve got Key West coffee shops for everyone.
Cuban Coffee Queen
Cuban Coffee Queen in Key West is only a six-minute walk from the Paradise Inn, so if you need your quick fix, this could be a great place to go.
