Blue Heaven

729 Thomas St. Key West, FL 33040 | Florida Keys | 305-296-8666

Location Description:

If you can't have fun eating here, maybe the Keys just aren't for you. The ramshackle building in Key West's still-to-be-gentrified Bahama Village neighborhood houses a gift shop and a nifty little tiled dining room. But the real action takes place outside, at dozens of picnic and patio tables set in the dirt, where the restaurant's pet chickens and roosters peck and caw around your feet. Although it's open for lunch and dinner, Blue Heaven is most famous for its Sunday brunch, which is much more interesting than you might expect. Omelets, pancakes, hash browns, and the like are all a cut above the usual breakfast fare, but the real stars of the menu are dishes like an opulent lobster/eggs Benedict, and Key West shrimp served on a bed of grits infused with butter and Vermont cheddar cheese.
