It's hard to argue with any restaurant that's been around for more than 100 years. (In the case of Pepe's, they prefer to say that they're "the oldest 'joint' in Key West for a reason.") And while that sort of notoriety means that crowds are a common sight, it's worth standing in line—particularly if last night turned out to be a particularly late one. Breakfast is probably the busiest meal here, with early-morning hours (they open at 7:30 a.m.) and a range of Build Your Own Breakfast options.
