Key West, FL 33040
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
If you're in Key West and looking to eat, chances are you're after a sublime slice of Key lime pie. You'll find it at Camille's, an eccentric and eclectic diner. Savor that tart-sweet custard and cinnamon-infused graham cracker crust in the pink and blue rooms, where images of Marilyn Monroe and Charlie Chaplin look down from above. But be sure you don't stop there: The menu changes daily and features supremely fresh local seafood. For breakfast, try the Florida lobster and asparagus omelet, a giant stack of banana and walnut-studded buttermilk pancakes, or some of the best eggs Benedict you'll ever taste, with creamy poached eggs set atop lump crab cakes and dressed with velvety hollandaise. At dinner, you'll find snapper, grouper, and stone crab claws sided with honey Dijon mayo. No matter when you go, the friendly staff will make you feel like part of the same island culture that spawned such a quirky joint.

Hands down the best key lime pie I've ever had.
Try the white chocolate Godiva French toast. It's awesome
Try the special omlette with lobster and the mango pineapple mimosas
Try their famous French Toast! The Egg Scramble Supreme is very tasty. Great atmosphere and staff!
Tasty. Good call on the 'quickie'. Housekeeping has never heard of a vacuum, tho.
