2 Cents has some of Key West's most
..innovative cooking. The bar snacks are first rate and you can easily build a whole meal around them, but you'd be missing out on some incredible menu choices if you restricted yourself. All this and friendly staff - a real go-to place for locals, and I think out of towners who like a change of menu will really enjoy themselves.

Key West brunch
Delicious brunch foods in a quiet, covered, outdoor environment. Very Key West. Loved it.

Funky gastropub on a quiet
Funky gastropub on a quiet quirky Key West side street. All tables covered but outside. We were there on a beautiful night and it was pleasant. However, I am not sure what they do on steamy Summer nights. The food was well prepared and inventive with a good wine and drink menu. The indoor bar area was packed. Loved the light fixtures

Little Secret in KW!
First visit to 2 Cents and a little tricky to locate but well worth the hunt.
The Cheese Puff App was light and delicious, the Artichoke Dip was a little over done but good, the Taco of the Day was Fried Chicken and had a little heat but was delicious but the Parpadella Pasta was truly amazing!

2 Cents is off Devaul by 3/4
2 Cents is off Devaul by 3/4 of a block. The food is inventive, fresh and makes use of unusual ingredients or unusual combinations. Portions are good size and prices are reasonable, especially for KW. Tried the Bahn Xeo and was surprised by a beef taco which gave the authentic tacos I've had a run for their money.
Highly recommend the Pear Gonnchi, light as air and cooked perfectly. FGT were done in a panko, very lightly which was different, as I am use to a more core meal centric coating for fried tomatos. These were a pleasant surprise.
Also tried a special drink made from Luxardo cherries and rum, thinking it was going to be overly sweet, again, surprised and much enjoyed.

One of Key West's best restaurants
One of Key West's best restaurants tucked away on a side street away from the Duval Street activity. It is definitely worth a visit!

Great little place just a block from the wildness of the Duval bar scene, yet quite romantic and quiet. The Gnocchi was awesome!

Good food and ambiance in Key West
Just off the beaten path, 2 Cents offers a varied and interesting menu backed up with very tasty dishes at fairly reasonable prices. The atmosphere is outdoor country bistro, but there is an A/C bar area which looks like the perfect summer evening hangout. Staff are knowledgeable (thanks to notes) and attentive - worth several repeat visits to try the many appealing menu items.

Good food and service. Great beer list. Could use citronella candles for outside dining.

Great "off Duval" find!
By word of mouth we heard of 2 Cents and that it was owned by the proprietors of The Porch. We enjoyed a variety of menu items including Heirloom Watermelon Radishes, Pork Belly Tacos, Grilled Caesar and Scotch Eggs made with quail eggs. The place was laid back and easy for a group to dine and have a conversation. The food was the center of attention...not the background music or a stage show. We will be back.

Great food in a funky location
The outdoor patio seating is hot in the summer. Much better choice in Winter

Amazing culinary experience
Amazing culinary experience for a Chef. One of the best food experience my lady friend and I had while staying in Key West .

Another great dinner...
Our dinner experience was fantastic. The specials were Kung Pao Pork Belly and a grouper on turmeric quinoa with sweet potato hash. Both entrees were fantastic. Once again we ordered the duck duck nachos and couldn't ask for more. 2 cents is a wonderful place to sit and relax, while enjoying a cold Moscow Mule or a wonderful glass of wine. The service is wonderful, making sure our glass is full but not rushing us out. To top our night off we tried both of their beer floats for the nights. (It's hard to describe, but just know that they are fantastic.).

Very relaxing and great food
The best caprese salad ever! The mozzarella was fried and the tomatoes were heirloom. Catch of the day perfectly prepared.

Funky, off the beaten path
Funky, off the beaten path gem of a restaurant with fabulous staff and an inspired menu. Great for locals and anyone who covets the key west lifestyle of the 21st century.

Yum to all!
We had a girl's weekend getaway and wanted somthing casual but delicious (and affordable). This was it! The menu selection was unique and enticing. The dishes met all our expectation and then some. broiled grouper covered in roasted blueberries over porcini risotto had us all swooning. A great flavor combination I would have never thought of. The cocktails were really wonderful as well . The outdoors seating and lighting was lovely and very Key West, without feeling touristy. I will go there everytime I go to KW from now on.

Surprising funky little gem
Ate here on out last night in Key West...my partner and took my parents there for their 50th wedding anniversary.
Friendly service, check.
Diverse menu (comforting "pub" faire, local seafood nods, lighter as well as decadent choices) all imaginatively and deliciously prepared, check.
Tasty strong cocktails, check.
Bonus points for clearly marked gluten free items for my father AND amazing sculptural lighting fixtures.
We didn't explore the wine list, I'll leave that up to you...

Best in Key West
surprising varied and healthy menu. Extensive wine list for such a small place. A twist on traditional favorites. Salmon was freshest ever with a healthy kale and chickpea salad. Fried calamari with no hint of grease. Heirloom radish masterfully presented and sliced. Coastal, industrial décor really fun. Nice to have dessert (carrot cake) that is not one quarter of a cake in size. After a week of dining in Key West, 2 cents was our favorite.

First time visit was very decent
We were the for Sunday Brunch, the food was excellent, service was fair, but not enthusiastic or very quick, although friendly. Worth a repeat visit.
