Off the beaten path on Petronia Street. We sat upstairs on the deck with a cool breeze while eating an awesome southern style breakfast! Shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles, biscuits and gravy, pineapple mimosas and Bloody Mary's! What better way to spend a Sunday morning?

So many great places to eat in Key West - this one - not so sure.

It was a quiet night 8/11/16 as election results came in.. but our prissy little host was on top form being quite acerbic, less than genial and when I complained about the underdone chicken ( red middle) I received a lecture on how hard it was not to cook it dry / and the poultry leg blood vein. On being offered a free dessert - he asked if we enjoyed that"'as he'd bought it for us'!

Go to Blue Heaven.
Go to Bliss.
Go to Sarabeths.
Little fellow owner/ chef who ever you are in the red sneakers ...go to charm school...

Blown away by this top notch restaurant. Ambiance was so quiet and romantic. Low lights, terrace seating, comfortable seating. In a residential neighborhood but don't let that turn you off. It's a don't miss in Key West
Best dish, Pork Rinds. So super crispy and slightly salty. Watch out for the sauce its super hot. The portion is a nice size, we enjoyed it through out our entire meal. They go great with everything.
2nd Favorite, Beef Satay. It was a special so I don't think you can always get it. But if you can it's a delight to the taste buds. The cut is tri tip, really tender, its a little on the Asian flavor profile. Sweet and salty with a touch of peanut flavor.
3rd Mac and Cheese, al dente, nice crust but lacked the super cheesy flavor I was looking for

We came here for breakfast after reading all the reviews. It was just my husband and I in the restaurant so we got undivided attention. The service was excellent, but the food was just ok. We ordered the mac and cheese in a skillet and it came out luke warm. I ordered the chicken and waffles and it was a piece of chicken breast, battered sitting on top of a soaked waffle. The cook dump way too much syrup on my food. I would have liked it to have been on the side. Not sure we would go back there for breakfast.

My wife and I were on our way to Satiago's Bodega and finding out they had quite a long wait we dropped in at Firefly and were thought impressed! We had the deviled eggs and pimento cheese as starters and shared the meatloaf and Brussels sprouts as a meal. Everything was great and the atmosphere was super chill and very laid back. We both highly recommend a visit!
