French toast is a classic. Key lime pie, another classic. Put them together and naturally your taste buds will thank you. At Harpoon Harry’s, they stuff this popular breakfast dish with key lime custard. It’s a twist that will sure to become a classic in its own right.


Key Lime Martini



Every taste of this is bursting with flavor, especially when you have a graham cracker crust rimmed glass. Just like the pie, every restaurant in town serves up this drink, and they all claim to be the “best.” Our current favorite is at the White Tarpon, but don’t let us stop you from having to research the island yourself.

This union makes you say, “why didn’t I think of that?”  Glazed Donuts  is back at it again with this pienut (pie + donut). One bite with that filling oozing out and you’ll be thanking the key lime gods.


Key Lime Ice Cream



Prepare to feel the sweet and sour in your cheeks. This ice cream is homemade, all-natural and with no artificial junk added. As is all of the other flavors at Flamingo’s Crossing on Duval Street. And they have such an array of tropical flavors from locally grown fruits that you’re not going to want to choose just Key Lime.

Ok so you knew that the OG pie had to make this list. This miniature one is topped with meringue, which is traditional in the recipe. You can find these cuties on the Southernmost Food Tour, as well as other Key West favorites like Conch Fritters and rum.

Kermit’s store is definitely the mecca of all things Key Lime. From tea to chutneys, bath products to cookies, prepare to overindulge in the citrus delight. But our favorite has to be Key Lime Fudge. It’s the right amount of sweet and tart. Mhmm.


Key Lime Mojito



The Cuban cocktail meets Key West with this local drink.  Head over to the Lighthouse Court Hotel and try the best mojito on the island. Located across the street from Hemingway’s House, sip on the fresh libation and end your key lime search on the right note.
