Expensive but good

This place is quaint and sweet. It was I think a tad expensive but we're in a touristy area- it's not surprising. PS I tried the Island Wrap (I think it was called) and it was delicious! Great pit stop for beach food/small meal.

Delicious homemade salads. Our favorite is their wild caught gulf shrimp salad. It's not drenched in pre-packaged spices or a ton of mayo. We also very much enjoy their bean salad. Again, very natural juices and fresh beans. We visit the deli several times during each visit to Sanibel.

Picked up a quick to go order to enjoy on the beach. I looked up a menu online and called in an order. I was told that the 'Bulldog' sandwich wasn't on their menu. When I said I saw it online, I was told that their menu hadn't been updated in a while. We ordered the "Tom Turkey" which was... More

The Sanibel Oasis/East End Deli is a not to be missed place to get great food on the island! It is more like a little store that has a deli counter for "to go" food. There are a few tables and chairs on the porch where you can eat. They serve Cuban sandwiches, black beans and yellow rice, shrimp salad,... More

We stay at this end of the Island and appreciate being able to ride our bikes to pick up lunch. The beans and rice with all the condiments are yummy. The shrimp salad they will put on lettuce instead of a wrap or sandwich if you wish. Great sandwiches.

My husband and I decided to eat here after reading the favorable reviews. Take it from 2 Albany, NY foodies...don't bother. I had the curry and grape chicken salad sandwich (touted as a local favorite). Yes, there were grapes but...what happened to the curry? The chicken was tough and the addition of iceberg lettuce added a bland crunch to an... More

Being born Cuban, raised Cuban I have been granted the opportunity to enjoy Cuban cuisine all my life, does it make me an expert. ..maybe. But inarguably I'm experienced. I gravitate to vendors claiming they are "known" for their Cuban sandwiches. And sometimes what I get instead is some adulterated fusion nonsense, which is okay, I like new things, but... More

What a sweet place to grab a morning coffee or custom sandwich. They also have a great selection of beach stuff, snacks and even cigars. The ladies that work are very courteous and attend to details.
