“al fresco setting with improv art and flavorful food”

Opened by a pair of free spirits, Suanne and Richard, Blue Heaven has become its own well-known destination in key west. The chickens and cats roaming the premises are almost as famous as the food. Blue Heaven is al fresco dining, Key West style: canopies of tropical foliage, improvised art (a leopard-spotted mannequin, a rooster graveyard, jolly-colored coconuts and trap floats) and a sail strung between trees providing shade. But don’t let the whimsical décor mislead you: the food is taken seriously. One taste of the blueberry pancakes, carrot and curry soup, miso-marinated eggplant salad, or scallops provencale and you’ll have no doubt ingredients and the gentle time it takes to prepare fine food are the priorities. the menu barely changes (not even the specials, except to offer seasonal stone crab claws), which means that caribbean shrimp deglazed with red stripe, jamaican jerk chicken or pan-sautéed yellowtail with citrus beurre blanc will be there for you next time, too --- even if the reserve selections on the notable wine list may change. heavenly indeed, and home of quite possibly the best key lime pie the island offers, with its mountains of baked meringue topping. (review courtesy of www.guyoh.com) located in historic bahama village, blue heaven, one of the most casual of key west restaurants features indoor & outdoor dining, live entertainment and american, caribbean and vegetarian cuisine. Featured on Season 4 of Man vs. Food!

one of my favorite places in key west! with roosters and little chickens running around everywhere and a delicious menu, it's full of charm and character. it's also away from the main drag along Duval St. so you get a bit of quiet. would love to go back!

The food was wonderful! Atmosphere is very relaxed. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The wait was a little long but well worth it.

Blue Heaven is a delicious way to start your day in Key West. Arrive early because this is one popular place. Watch roosters and kittens weave in and out of the queue for breakfast before enjoying Lobster Benedict under the shade of an almond tree. Key lime pie for breakfast? Of course.
