I hit Pepe's Cafe,
the oldest restaurant in Key West (1909) for Sunday
Dinner and followed it up with my last breakfast in Key
West this trip.
Sunday night is
barbecue night - pork spareribs smoked over native
buttonwood. Served with beans 'n bacon, corn
bread and coleslaw. A whole slab of ribs basted
with a smoky-sweet sauce. Tender, juicy, good eatin'.
Started with a half
dozen oysters on the half shell. Pepe's is famous
for their Apalachicola Bay oysters but the past season's
storms have limited the catch. Mine were from
incredibly creative and incredible french toast - coated
with homemade granola and topped with blackberries and
strawberries in a cream cheese yogurt sauce.
Started with a solid bloody mary, had some homemade
sausage on the side, and toted along a slice of their
fresh baked key lime bread.
Funky Key West
attitude and right across the street from B.O.'s Fish
Wagon. Could be my favorite block in Key West.
