Southernmost Beach Café is really on the beach. The restaurant and bar is fronted by a wide swath of sand that overlooks the ocean close to the Southernmost Point. It’s fine dining and drinking in a very tropical locale, complete with a custom menu of cocktails such as the SOMO Sangria made from scratch with muddled fruit and served over ice.
“This is paradise and everything anybody is looking for in Key West,” said bartender Bull Burrow, who quit his job as a mailman to work at the Southernmost Beach Café.
The South Beach Bucket is the signature rum punch made with five flavors of Cruzan Rum and tropical fruit juices served in a 32-ounce bucket.
They do mojitos right such as the coconut mojito with real coconut crème or a mango mojito that includes Bacardi Mango rum, mango puree, muddled lime, fresh mint and sugar. All the ingredients are simple and high-quality with an organic result to match the incredible environs.
For guests who want to skip the stylish cocktails, order a Dark ‘n’ Stormy from the specialty cocktails menu. It’s made by mixing Gosling’s Black Seal dark rum, ginger beer and a lime.
Southernmost Beach Café also has a lengthy wine selection and specialty beers in bottles including Lefthand Milk Stout, Seadog Blueberry Wheat, Dogfish Head 60 min IPA, Fat Tire Amber Ale and Native Lager. The café is located at the top of Duval — 1405 Duval St. It’s open from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.
