Roof Top Cafe Named Number One Restaurant in Key West

In June of 2015, named Roof Top Cafe the number one hottest restaurant in Key West, Florida.

Sitting just off of historic Mallory Square, amidst the limbs of a century old Chinese Mahogany and surrounded by flowering bougainvillea, Roof Top Cafe has long been a destination restaurant frequented by vacationers and locals alike. A 30 year icon on the island, the restaurant was recently named the number one hottest restaurant in Key West by

On June 16, 2015 the respected online rating and review website released their “8 Hottest Restaurants in Key West” by Carissa Chesanek, in which the casual dining restaurant held the coveted top position. Followed by trendy and fashionable eateries such as The Stoned Crab, Blue Heaven and the uber trendy, Charlie Mac's, Roof Top Cafe found its place at number one.

“We were very pleased and surprised by the announcement,” said Wednesday Vogel, successful restauranteur and co-owner with husband, Norman, of Roof Top Cafe. “There is just something very special about knowing that what we're doing is working! I mean, we beat out some of my favorite restaurants in Key West. That speaks volumes for what our restaurant means to the island.”

Vogel was quick to point out that the mention of a “quaint dining room on the first floor,” in the article on was a mistake by the author. The first floor is occupied by the Agave 308 Tequila bar. The Roof Top Cafe indoor dining room is on the second floor alongside the second level outdoor dining deck.

“We love being on the second floor, overlooking the street,” Vogel commented. “Our outdoor dining deck is the ideal location for people watching, stepping out of the buzz on the streets and relaxing with an island inspired meal and a cocktail!”

For those looking for a place to cool down, the indoor dining room is often air-conditioned during the heat of the day but the full glass walls can be retracted in the cooler evening hours, offering a tropical breeze both indoors and out.

“As summer begins and our clientele becomes predominately vacationers, we tend to accommodate the needs of our patrons,” Vogel added with a smile. “Not all of us can deal with the humidity and tropical heat that comes with the island year round! It's important that we provide the setting our customers are looking for.”

A prime location for destination weddings and receptions, both the indoor dining room and outdoor dining deck are the choice of many brides for the traditional post nuptial shindig.

“We are knee deep in wedding season right now,” Vogel pointed out. “And to be named the number one restaurant in Key West in addition to being one of the most popular locations for group events, weddings and wedding receptions on the island, I think we're living the dream of many restaurant owners!”

Roof Top Cafe is located at 308 Front Street, just above the Agave 308 Tequila Bar on the utmost Southern point of the United States, Key West, Florida.
