Best Cuban sandwiches anywhere

Tucked away off of White and Virginia (and attached to a laundromat), this is hands down the best Cuban sandwich outside of Cuba. Get an iced coffee to go with it. Lots of local color will accompany your meal of you eat in the attached seating area.

Walked down the street on our last night in Key West to pick up a sandwich. I wish I had tried this place earlier in our trip. We had the Cuban, all the way and it was amazing! Tried the cheese bread, but I wasn't impressed by that and wouldn't order it again. Flan was good too, but not the... More

Best Cuban sandwiches on the island. DO NOT USE DELIVERY. We've been going to Sandy's for fifteen years. Ordered four sandwiches and a salad to eat while watching last sundown for the week. Driver showed up 1.5 hours later and when I refused delivery they followed up with a nasty call from their dispatch saying they would no longer serve... More

If you are on White st you have to stop here. It is located on the front of a laundromat, but don't let that fool you. They have a huge selection of food and terrific Cuban coffee. They also have American coffee if you like. If you don't feel like getting out they will deliver as long as your order... More

Home to a bunch of good sandwiches! It fronts White Street with limited seating. You could always retire to the laundry mat which is right there. A native's choice, it was scrumptious. Big menu variety. Open 24 hours. Fun, fun, fun.

Hands down Sandy's has theeeeeeee best cafe con leche I've ever had. Their set up is a bit odd with the cafe attached to a Landry mat, but this place rocks!

When traveling I find it interesting to eat where locals eat, off the beaten path and away from the "tourist spots." Sandy's is it. It is truely a local's place. My wife used to walk there from high school to get cafe con leche, and cheese bread. This was my first trip to Sandy's. Now...don't let the fact that it's... More

If you are in Key West and crave Cuban Food this is it. Don't expect to sit at a nice table to eat. This is a road side restaurant with four seats. Best if you take it home to eat. However, the food is genuine and delicious. So much food served for the money. Could not eat it all.

We ordered sandwiches for delivery and we were not disappointed! Our food came very quickly. I had the steak fajita sandwich and it was easily one of the best I have ever had. Also, the plantains were delicious.
