Many people recognize Key West, Florida for having delectable Key Lime pie , pleasant weather and beautiful beaches . But today I’m going to add one more item to that list… Shrimp Po Boy’s. Sitting snugly on the famous downtown Duval Street is a nationally recognized lunch eatery called Caroline’s Cafe.

Caroline’s is not only big on flavor but also history. The American eatery is housed in a home built around the early 1800’s. The establishment provides an elevated outdoor seating area perfect for enjoying the sultry scenery of Key West. The restaurant’s outdoor covered seating area is the hanging source for several bright lanterns that illuminate down on the miniature wooden tables. Located in the middle photo 1of the crowded patio area is the restaurant’s busy bar setting that provides an array of midday cocktails to celebrate any occasion.

Caroline’s menu contains many Key West classics such as Conch Fritters and Yellow fin fish . However, the Shrimp Po Boy is definitely enough to tantalize any seafood lovers’ taste buds. The fresh hearty shrimp are placed on a toasted hoagie and lathered with Caroline’s special spicy mayo. The simple but succulent sandwich is garnished with fresh lettuce and tomatoes to assist in accenting the crunchiness of the shrimp. The well seasoned sub is accompanied by a plentiful order of piping hot French fries. photo 3

The filling meal not only receives high praise for its tastefulness but also its affordable price. Caroline’s Cafe is definitely the place to come and enjoy a flavorsome meal or people watch while celebrating life.!
