Drool-worthy and huge enough to save half for breakfast. Served with french fries and I also bought a large con leche that was absolutely amazing! We're heading back to Key West next week, can't wait to go back!

Sandy's Cafe is a small 'hole in the wall' (literally) attached to a laundromat on White Street. This Cafe is 24/7 and has some of the most authentic Cuban food on the island. Not only that, they make a great Cafe con Leche! Been out on Duval until 3am and search for munchies...Sandy's is a great option. Great prices, quality... More

Saw this from the tour train and decided to re-trace our steps to find it. Great sandwiches at a reasonable price. this became either a breakfast or lunch stop for us each day of our visit.

Make that one thing a trip to Sandy's. They are open 24 hours a day and they make THE BEST food on the island. If you are hard up and can't afford the most delicious $8 Cuban or $10 Burrito do yourself a favor and stand outside the window. If I could bottle that smell and take it with me... More

Ordered the Cuban Sandwich. It was very large, had to put the other half in the in room fridge. It was a really good sandwich. The prices are very reasonable and we even had delivery right to our hotel. I absolutely would not hesitate to eat there again and will plan on eating many meals there the next time I... More

Always the place we go for a great Cuban sandwich. They do it the right way. They have put in extra outside seating which is a big help to keep the lines moving. They also make a perfect coffee to pick up on your way to the White St pier for the sunrise.

This was our 5th vacation in Key West and would never have found Sandy's if it wasn't for a friend who lived there for 15 years. This was without a doubt the best fish tacos I have ever had. My wife loved her beef and rice and my son actually ate his entire meal.

This little cafe was just around the corner from the house we rented. All week long, we smelled the enticing food smells that wafted over our backyard as we lay by the pool. So finally we had to try it out for ourselves. Half of us enjoyed our food while the other half said it wasn't that great. So if... More

Been driving by Sandy's for four days. Even drove by at 2:30 in the morning. Always people there. We stopped by for lunch. Sandwiches were very good. Had the Cuban mix and Sandy's sandwiches. Both were very good. Could have split them they were so big. Had a great meat to bread ratio. Balanced with right amount of lettuce, tomatoes... More
