March 24, 2011: Lunch and March 25, 2011: Breakfast
We spotted this restaurant and went to it without having read any reviews. Turns out that we totally lucked out! There was a couple eating there who were locals, and they were very friendly, told us they ate here all the time, and strongly recommended that we come back for breakfast the next day. Apparently the breakfast was voted best breakfast in Key Largo. For lunch, my husband had a cup of conch chowder, which was excellent, very full of conch and not too overpoweringly tomato-ey in taste. We both had the conch fritter sandwiches ($11.95), on the recommendation of the couple near us, and these were very good, though oily as fried food is known to be. They also had a bit more filling than I would have liked, but they were crisp on the outside, tender on the inside, and very flavorful.
For breakfast, my husband had the Atkins Lover #2, which consisted of eggs and various meats for $6.95, while I had the egg & biscuit combo for $2.95. The biscuits were great: large and fluffy. We had heard that the muffins, $3.95 each, were outstanding, so he ordered a blueberry muffin and I ordered a key lime muffin. These definitely lived up to their reputations! The key lime was delightfully sweet and tart, and the blueberry muffin was light and fluffy. Service was friendly and prompt, food was good, and price was right – what more could we ask?
