Good eats

Beans and rice are very good - cuban pork version esp. We used it as the base of a meal and added a cut veg salad to round things out.

This is a small hole in the wall neat the each with some very good sandwiches. There is seating outside on the porch, which came in hand since there was a rain storm just as we were finishing our lunch.

We grab sandwiches from East End Deli and take them too the beach. Love the turkey provolone with cranberry sauce. Not a glamorous shop but good tasting sandwiches.

After a gruelling walk along the never ending beach only to find that SANIBEL really is a "bring your own lunch" kinda beach, a local directed us to this gem. I had the shrimp po-boy and my partner had a Reuben. Both great. We ate from the foil wrappers at a table on the porch of the house. It is... More

Ordered sandwiches to go and was very disappointed with mine. I ordered the Tuna Club, which was supposed to have bacon on it....hello, a "club" sandwich. Didn't get mayo, thinking that the tuna would have some in it. I think it did, but was very dry and the bread was not toasted, (another "club" sandwich must for me). Wouldn't go... More

Stopped in on a whim with the family. Ordered the Cuban Sandwich, out of this world. Wife had Chicken Wrap. Outstanding. Great little diamond in the ruff if your in the area. Prices were very reasonable for Sanibel Florida.

Rose, you are the best!! I came in to the deli after spending the whole day at the beach with my girlfriend. It was my birthday and in the rush from the hotel we didn't take anything substantial to eat. So, I went down the street to the deli to pick up a few things. Rose working behind the counter... More

Coming to Sanibel at least a couple times during our vacation we always head to the east end to visit the lighthouse. Stopped at this deli to get sandwiches to take with us. Waited in line behind two other people to place our order. The women behind the counter was not friendly at all and barely looked up at customers... More

Our family of four ordered three sandwiches which was more than enough to sample and share! Many made-to-order options to choose from including bread ! Service was timely compared to the other restaurant options on the island and very friendly !
