Add to your Key West “must do” list eating at Key West restaurants on the water! Start with incomparable oceanfront dining at the closest restaurant this side of Cuba, the Southernmost Beach Café, a short walk from the famed buoy.

If you have ever visited Key West, without a doubt, you’ve had your photo taken at that famous concrete marker, the Southernmost Point buoy. It’s something you just have to do. You have to document your trek to the last speck of land before Cuba.

From humble beginnings on Tennessee Williams’ favorite bathing beach, this popular, casual eatery is surrounded by and part of the Southernmost Collection of hotels and guest houses. The waterfront venue boasts an unobstructed view of South Beach, the best beach in town for people watching or catching a wave.

The sunny yellow restaurant exterior, woven bistro chairs, turquoise walls and vibrant local artwork envelope you in island charm. Yes, that is sand in your shoes- remember you are at the beach. More cabana than café you think, until you sample the cuisine.Key West Restaurants on the Water
