If you were looking for the Best Cuban sandwich in Key West. Consider ending your trip at Sandy's Cafe on White Street in Key West. Don't be fooled that it is located alongside a laundromat. There is a reason that people are lined up outside waiting for their food. I have only had the Cuban and it melts in your... More

My husband asked for a "media noche" and it was not made on a sweet bread (which it's the actual bread needed to make the sandwich. I asked for a Cuban "cafe con leche" and it was not made to our liking, especially after telling the guy that I wanted it light and sweet (he still made it dark and... More

Love coming here. Affordable, low-key, and authentic. We heard about it from a local, and have eaten there more than once on each of the two trips we've made to KW. Take out or outdoor (limited) seating only. Iced Cuban coffee is great too!

Great little hole in the wall place inside a laundry mat. Had breakfast and lunch here on different days. Recommend for good inexpensive food.

We went looking for Bad Boy Burrito but found they have not opened in their new spot yet. We were refered to Sandys and were hooked! Went there 3 days in a row for lunch! Fish burrito, Shrimp burrito and Cuban wrap were all delicious. The cafe con leche made me wanting more. Will definetly return.

We ordered our Cuban pork meals to be delivered. They said we will be there in 40 minutes. To our amazement, they showed up in 20 minutes. The food was awesome. Pork - tender and delicious. Plantains - fabulous. Very reasonably priced.

I ordered 2 cubans. We arrived and were pleasantly surprised there wasn't a line so we deiced to sit outside and eat our... More

Great 24-hour Cuban and Latino largely-take-out restaurant on White Street! I call this joint "largely take-out" because it has no interior seating (the interior consists only of the kitchen and two ordering window areas). This great little place has two ordering windows, one opening into the attached laundromat (if you are not familiar with Key West, almost EVERY business in... More

This is just a little take-out place next to a laundry mat but boy do they ever make the best Cuban and Mexican food. Ask any local Key Wester where the best place is to get a quick lunch or dinner and they will all say Sandy's Cafe! Wish I had on in my neighborhood.
