Great Italian food or a quick breakfast

We happen to find Sam and Jacks as we wandered around the Starfish Market, we had 2 breakfast sandwiches which were very good but we did not try the Italian food to go, maybe next year but worth a stop.

We stopped here a couple of times to buy sandwiches prior to heading to the beach. Great meats and condiments. They also have some premade meals that you can take home and heat up. It is on the third floor, but worth the hike up. Cash only at this time.

This is a great deli to make a pit stop at before heading to the beach. My husband and I shared the Uncle Peep (on a hero/sub roll instead of the multigrain bread) 3 days in a row, it was so good! Glad to see they are open on Sunday's now (they were not last year when we visited). Though... More

This Deli is fantastic. Their sandwiches are soo good. Great for picking up and taking to the beach. They are also big enough to share. We stopped here last year and knew we had to come back on this years trip. This time I tried the Sammy Hammy ($12), and my hubby got the Jackson ($11). Both are Delicious!!!

Our family of four stopped by twice to get sandwiches for lunch at the beach. The Uncle Peep was delicious and because they were huge we only needed two. Homemade chips were good as well, but aren't ready until a little later in the morning. If you arrive at opening, be prepared to wait a little as people line up... More

We went to Sam and Jack's twice earlier this month while on vacation. Both times we ordered the Uncle Peep sandwich because it's just that delicious. One sandwich easily feeds two adults. We met Sam's parents in Coral Bay and tried to persuade them to share the recipe for the cranberry-walnut aioli but they are sworn to secrecy and couldn't... More

Had the special Ham and Cheese with Alfredo sauce. Amazing. My husband had the Chuckles - also great! Chocolate Chip cookies and homeade chips were also great!

What a jewel in the Caribbean! The location is perfect, the menu is extremely diverse, they have a wonderful wine selection! The ham is delicious, as were the yummy olives! They make fabulous baskets of goodies to go, which were perfect on our deck during cocktails.

Great deli! Every sandwich was delicious. Very friendly staff!! Fast service. Wine selection was better than downstairs. And didn't try but their family dinners looked awesome!
