I've eaten here 3 times while using the laundry facility. Its great to have all in one place. Fast service, right off the grill and tasty. Prices can be a bit challenging at times for some folks but it is overall a good spot to munch and wash.

They may be known for their Cuban sandwiches, but they have long been passed by other establishments in both quality and taste.

Sandy's is 1 of our favorite places to visit when in Key West and is usually 1 of our 1st stops. Great Cuban coffee, sandwiches are awesome and they deliver to you after 8 a/m. Order a "midnight" and go out site seeing.

A little bit out of the way for tourists, but it's a great spot for lunch, especially if you're a Cuban sandwich fan!

Service isn't the quickest but who is in a hurry in the Keys... Food is great. Local hangout. Much faster and cheaper than sitting down at a restaurant.

Next to the laundry mat, killer cuban sandwich if you like pork. The French fries had thin cut Latin flair with some sweet spice. I enjoyed the fries most. Also had a cuban coffee very very authentic. The service was fast, a lunchtime spot small line but totally worth it!

Stopped at this little restaurant from a recommendation from a friend. So worth it. The Cuban sandwich was amazing! Very large for the price and came with fries. I also had some Cuban coffee and fell in love with that. Wish I could have taken some home. Definitely worth the trip. It is a small restaurant in the side of... More

The coffee was perfect. I have dreams about this coffee. The Cuban mix was very good - I didn't eat it right away - it say for 15-20 minutes while I enjoyed the coffee all on its own. When I did eat the sandwich, the bread was dry and stale. I am nearly positive that it was my fault for... More
