Randomly stopped by for lunch as it was open on a Monday. One of the best breakfast sandwiches I've had in a long while. The chicken salad was also good as was their harvest salad.

Get the turkey pastrami sandwich . I only had a bite because I had eaten breakfast but my daughter was hungry so we stopped in. She raved about this sandwich and she was right. She enjoyed it so much that she talked about it for days ! We dined outside in the patio but she made sure to go back... More

The staff was extremely hospitable and kind! It definitely made the experience a memorable one. Additionally, the restaurant had a great casual outdoor dining atmosphere, and the tuna melt sandwich was delicious!

yummy chicken salad melt with cheese and bacon, and excellent desserts: chocolate silk pie, award winning coconut cake featured in Southern Living magazine--order at the counter, and there are a few tables inside for a respite from the southern heat, and several outside tables, lovely outdoor café setting

Since I've become an adult I've truly missed the home made taste of food my grandmother use to make. Well…. Today I found it again. UNBELIEVABLE!!! If you want simple sandwiches and sides that taste like you had growing up this is your place!! Btw, get the chocolate cake. You're welcome to find a better one ANYWHERE! Not possible

We dropped into Sandra's on our way back to our hotel from the beach. There is a great patio with covered tables as well as a few small inside tables. Food is ordered at the counter then delivered to your table. The staff was wonderful (like ordering from Mom). It took a few minutes to get our order in but... More

Funny how some of the reviews say the prices are a bit high. I totally disagree, the food is delicious (my party had a salads and sandwiches, plus chocolate cake!) and based on the quality of food, the southern hospitality and the perfect corner location in Fairhope it was a bargain! I never miss the chance to enjoy lunch at... More

We arrived late at just before 3pm. They were about to close, but welcomed us in. We were very grateful as we had just walked back from Shux and they're closed on Mondays. The staff in tis small private restaurant were lovely and so welcoming. The food was adequate at that moment.

Best sandwiches in town (or anywhere I've been!) Great menu and the best desserts ever. Quick service and friendly behind-the-counter servers make this a very enjoyable eating experience. I've eaten here several times and you can't go wrong with ANY sandwich but I LOVE their reuben.
