Awaken to Fresh Tropical Delights at Our B&B in Key West
Here in the Keys, we do things a bit differently than traditional B&Bs in other parts of the country. Breakfast is one of them. At the Tropical Inn, we offer healthy, light but ample fare, prepared in accordance with governing local health codes. Licensing parameters prevent bed and breakfasts in Florida not having commercial kitchen facilities (like us, and all but a few others in Key West), from cooking onsite. So we trust that you will appreciate the delicious and nutritious offerings we bring to you each morning, creatively planned and imaginatively presented.
As a nod to our guests from diverse cultures around the world, we hope you will enjoy sharing what we call a "Euro-tropical" breakfast – best described as classic Continental, plus a variety of fresh fruit and protein -- served buffet-style on the back porch of the Main House each morning, beginning at the civilized hour of 8:30. In keeping with the way we do most things around here, it's a casual affair; just come and help yourself when you're ready.
A particular pleasure at the Tropical Inn is breakfast in our lush tropical garden. Or you may prefer to take a tray to your room, private porch or patio ... or choose the Inn's upstairs veranda overlooking Duval Street, for a little people watching as the town awakens!
If it's a hot, prepared-to-order breakfast you're yearning for during your stay, we are within easy walking distance of a plethora of excellent restaurants. One is sure to satisfy, whether it's gourmet fare or just good old bacon-and-eggs you have in mind. We'll be happy to help you decide which is the one for you.
We visit the marketplace several times a week to assure that you are always offered only the best and freshest selections, hand chosen from our island's finest purveyors and always with an eye for the new and unusual. To maintain variety, the array is some days more elaborate than others, and to keep things interesting, we occasionally mix it up with a special treat from one or another of our island's finest kitchens. A sampling of the choices we are proud to offer are:
- Fresh fruits & juices
- Bakery-fresh pastries, bagels, muffins & breads
- Hard boiled eggs
- Coffee, milk & fine teas
- Selection of cereals & granola
- Yogurt, meats & cheeses
- Premium jams & spreads
