As Breezy and Relaxed as Key West Itself
A longtime resident of Conch Flats, Olivia welcomes diners with Island-inspired dishes. This nautical-themed eatery has the friendly, familiar feel of a neighborhood institution and is a perennial favorite of many a Guest.
A must-visit spot for breakfast, Olivia’s Cafe serves up traditional favorites as well as several of Olivia’s own specialties: the breakfast Cuban sandwich, the Conch Republic omelet and the banana bread French toast.
Come in and Conch out
Conch fritters, conch chowder, an array of stacked sandwiches and the signature Duval Street burger make for a leisurely and fully loaded lunch.
Dinnertime is delicious time with pan-seared sea scallops, shrimp and grits, succulent barbecue pork ribs and New York strip steak. And don’t forget about Olivia’s famous cheesy potatoes!
If you have any room left, you can’t go wrong with the key lime tart or the warm banana bread pudding sundae with bananas Foster topping.
Olivia’s also offers a cavalcade of Island cocktails for Guests over 21. Wines and draft beers are also available, as are milkshakes, smoothies and the Glowing Character Punch, featuring a light-up Disney character.
Reservations are recommended and can be made up to 180 days prior to your visit.
Who Is Olivia?
Olivia Farnsworth lived in a small cottage along Turtle Krawl, upwind of the strip. Almost daily, she would invite curious passersby who smelled her cooking to come on in and pull up a chair. People loved her vibrant flavors and earthy personality, and, before long, she found herself setting more tables.
Eventually, Olivia opened the doors to her eponymous cafe, which has been a haven for locals and a must-visit for out-of-towners ever since.
