So Sandys has good decent coffee and sandwiches, its quick, easy and well its right on the street corner. One thing that this writer has forgotten a few times is that this place is cash only, in this day and time they take no credit or debit. We all know what owners of CASH Only restaurants do with all that... More

Authentic Cuban coffee and sandwiches. This is take out only. It's easy to get to. Has some parking and you'll only have to wait a few minutes in line with some locals. Can't go wrong with the Cuban sandwich or any of the breakfast sandwiches!

Everytime we go by there is a line of locals here. We decided to try it early one morning before the line started and now I see why it is always busy. They have a full menu, breakfast, lunch, dinner. Prices on the food were high but I'm sure worth it. Keep in mind that it is on the front... More

We stopped by here for some cuban sandwiches after watching the 4th of July fireworks. There was a long line, and after ordering, our food took a while to come out. The guy that took our order was not friendly at all. The food was delicious. Next time, i'll order it as a delivery.

Love getting Sandy's delivery but the lady is always so rude on the phone. If you don't want my business you wont be getting it.

There can be no debate, Sandy's has the best Cuban sandwiches in Key West. But don't let your craving for Cuban make you miss Sandy's special sandwich. Ham, cheese, bacon, and more. Great. We visited twice during our trip.

Looking for a different place than the one near Mallory Square and less expensive Cuban food option- I found it. This place is attached to a laundromat and the Cuban mix sandwich was awesome. Best one I have had in a long time. Definitely on my list every time I go to Key West.

We'd always heard Sandy's was the true origin on the Cuban sandwich and that their sandwich was the best of its breed. That information is absolutely spot on. Just about any time of day you can walk up to the order window at this unassuming shop housed in the same building as a laundromat and order the most delicious Cuban... More

We recently went to the movie "CHEF". By the time the movie was over, we were all hungry for Cuban sandwiches (Topic of Movie) We googled best Cuban Sandwich in Key West and Sandy's Cafe came up as the best. Off we went to Sandy's and we weren't disappointed. It was fixed right in front of us through an open... More
