A very special Restaurant and a MUST to visit!

The islands most quintessentially "Key West" restaurant has to be Blue Heaven. Like everything in Key West, it's got some history. The building once housed a bordello and later Hemingway refereed boxing matches there.

Located in the Bahamian neighborhood (Bahama Village), this restaurant is an absolute favorite with locals and visitors serving fine American cuisine.

During the day a few chicken and roosters roam the outdoor dining garden. By nightfall, they have moved to the trees to roost for the night while the cats come out to play.

The food is outstanding, the atmosphere funky and lively, and the experience should be memorable. Live music is gently offered by local musicians as diners enjoy the breezes caught in the shade sails.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
No reservations accepted (except for very large groups).
729 Petronia Street

That bar photo pretty much sums up Key West. :D

I kind of miss it. The traffic is what really gets to me - too many people on such a small piece of land. But it seems that every time I finally get to where I'm going, all of that is forgotten and I blend into the scenery. It's probably the only place in the world where I can wake up and have a Mimosa with breakfast and not feel any guilt. And I don't even drink Mimosas. :)

Hi Pete,

I think you've described very well the "Island feelings", with or without mimosas, you can be lost very fast...lost in time, orientation and money!:-)

Thanks for commenting.

Cool restaurants, I really have to get out more, Drive through McDonalds is the only place I have time for, so sad.

Hi Bob,

Yes, it's big fun to hang out here in these funky places - of course not every day.

Thanks for commenting.
