Off Market: The World Famous Cracked Conch Cafe

4999 Overseas Highway, Marathon, FL 33050

Update:  This property is Off Market

Beau Beach, CCIM presents:

For the first time in 40 years, the world famous Cracked Conch Cafe is now available for purchase.  As seen on the Food Network.  This is your chance to escape the winter, control your own destiny and live in paradise!  31,000 vehicles pass by the cafe EVERY DAY.

Why suffer through another harsh winter when you could be living your dream of owning an island cafe in the Florida Keys?  The Cracked Conch Cafe has been open for business every day since 1979.  The popular roadside cafe is known for its many varieties of conch, a type of sea snail, whose shell also serves as a symbol of the Florida Keys.  Diners enjoy breakfasts served until 4PM, strong coffee, creamy Key Lime Pie and some of the coldest beer in the Keys.

This is a turn-key operation that includes the real estate, business, supplies and equipment.  Due to age, the seller is no longer involved in the day-to-day operations of the restaurant.  And while the restaurant currently does well, we expect the next owner to take the business to another level.  The cafe’s current revenue is a solid foundation from which to grow.  The business currently thrives off of word of mouth and it’s high traffic location…but little marketing.  Once the buyer executes a traditional marketing plan the business will surely grow.

The restaurant has a full bar and is open 365 days a year from 8AM to 9PM.  Built in 1973.  Indoor and outdoor seating available.  107′ of frontage on Overseas Highway (also known as Hwy 1).  58 parking spaces.  Historical financial information available to qualified buyers.  Seller will finance up to $500,000 of the purchase.  Click here to visit the Cracked Conch Cafe’s current website.

Are you ready to take this already famous cafe to the next level?


For many the Islands of the Florida Keys are the epitome of a dreamy Florida Keys vacation where visitors relax waterside in the sun with an umbrella drink and nothing on the agenda. For others, it means heart-pounding action with a trophy fish on the line or diving to new depths on a scuttled ship. By day, popular activities include stand-up paddleboarding or kayaking through gorgeous mangrove caves or strolling through art galleries and boutiques of locally-made creations. By night, visitors are savoring fresh, local seafood and sipping tropical concoctions before watching the sun dip into the water and painting the night sky.
