Keys. Enjoy the food and ambiance and keep an eye out for falling almonds, Spanish limes, coconuts, and roosters. Finally, no swinging from the water tower on the rope swing!!!

A dance hall, a bordello and a playhouse have occupied the second floor. Today inside the Bordello Gallery above the restaurant, one can still peek through the sliding peep holes into the tiny rooms.

Stop here when hungry after exploring Key West, you'll be glad you did. The food is delicious, and you'll enjoy the outdoor seating with a unique Key West vibe.

Popular brunch spot where you’ll be waiting a while unless you get there at the opening. Not an expansive menu but the few items they have are quite good. The snapper sandwich was tasty.
Plenty of space here to grab a drink and wait the 30-60 minutes for your table .

Great food though pricier than we expected. Great atmosphere and the key lime pie was excellent, with a merengue instead of whipped creme.

My favorite is the the Bacon Lobster and Tomato eggs benedict. Parking can be a challenge but worth it. Open air seating in true Key West style. Funky and Fun.

I cannot even begin to tell you how good this is for Breakfast. Other meals are wonderful as well but Breakfast is what they are known for. An inside tip. Get there before 9 am and you will be seated pretty quick. Wait till 9:15 and you will wait 1/2-1 hr. Personally I like the Banana Pecan Pancakes with side or sausage but lots of folks to for the Lobster Egg Benedict A bit pricey but you will never match it.

Start your day with a Bloody Goose, or a Goosehound, get the picture?
http://blueheavenkw.com but get there early-Not on the Menu Key west must The Lobster BLT. Its Eggs Benedict with Tomato and Lobster. You will need to ask how to get there. Tour Hemingway’s house when you are done breakfast. Its about a block away from My Blue Haven. Have a Bloody Goose or a Goose Hound –Do you see a trend developing with their drinks??

This is a must! Eat outdoors among the Key West Roosters and allow your senses to have a full Key West experience. Very eclectic. The food is outstanding and offered for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Go early as there can be long wait times but, you can enjoy music, mimosas or bloody Mary's while you wait. Kids can play ping pong and swing on the rope. Feel free to wander around at the various boutique stores in Bahama Village also while you wait.

The best and most truly unique Key West restaurant. Great seafood and great atmosphere. True Key West. You will never find better food or atmosphere. Literally one hundred steps from this house.

We would give Ricky's Blue Heaven a 10 if possible! Absolutely the best breakfast with their special BLT omelet (Bacon-Lobster-Tomato)!!! Dinner specials include amazing and unique fish dishes as well as an incredible pork medallion with chutney and sweet potatoes. Yum!

Our favorite restaurant in Key West for the food and atmosphere. Usually need reservations to avoid an hour+ wait except in low season/weekdays.

A delightful outdoor restaurant, in a location rich in Key West history.
Try the Shrimp and Grits, Blueberry pancakes, Benedicts, and Bloody Marys
for brunch.

Blue Heaven is a really fun place to eat. The environment is funky with lots of roosters, outdoor table tennis, musical entertainment and yummy food.

This is THE place for breakfast or brunch. The outside bar offers cheap drinks including a delicious Bloody Mary to savor while you wait (anywhere from 30-90 minutes) for your table, dodging cats and chickens that surround the entire property. Their lobster benedict is their claim to fame and for good reason. The pancakes are incredible and you must leave room for the best key lime pie in all of Key West. If you don’t like chickens, I recommend the upstairs balcony of the old house-turned-restaurant to enjoy your meal.

At the end of Terry Lane on Petronia Street the BEST breakfast in the keys! Opened by a pair of free spirits, Suanne and Richard, Blue Heaven has become its own well-known destination in key west. Just steps away from Terry Lane.

Key West at it's best. Outdoor seating in a tropical garden full of strutting roosters and massive strangler figs. The food is wonderful, the service full of Key West character, and the experience truly tropical.

If you want a quintessential Key West atmosphere and eat wonderful Caribbean food served by a grown up wait staff, Blue Heaven is THE place. The Lobster Benedict in the morning or the Yellowtail Snapper on Angel Hair pasta at night are two dishes you'll always remember
