On the side of the road next door to a laundry mat and a place a tourist would likely avoid. Found a 20% coupon in a visitors book and felt compelled to try it when I saw wo many people standing outside. The midnight sandwiches are the best ever!!! Truthfully worth a late night snack for very little money. Grab... More

Ordered the Cuban Mix. A friendly, efficient guy took my order and the sandwich came out within a few minutes. Was surprised to see it came with fries (tasted above average) and was also surprised how big the sandwich was. Truly big enough for 2 people, especially with the fries. Neat casual, outdoor atmosphere away from the chaos of Duval... More

Sandy's is located on the corner of White St. and Virginia St. It is a small Cuban restaurant with a laundromat attached. While my wife and I were there doing laundry we got chicken burritos for lunch. They were absolutely amazing and very filling! We had enough leftovers for lunch the next day as well and the prices are very... More

My husband is an avid lover of Cuban Sandwiches. If they are on a menu he orders it. This by far is his favorite. The bread is good and toasted perfectly and loaded with all of the deliciousness that goes into a classic Cuban sandwich and more! It is just a counter on a street corner, but well worth the...

This local cafe is the place to go if you want an outstanding Cuban sandwich! You order right from the outdoor counter. Take your food to go or opt to eat on the stools offered outside. We watched the chickens and roosters while we devoured the best Cuban sandwich in Key West. It is a local stop but you will... More

So far have tried the cafe con leche (large for $3.09!), Cuban Mix, steak fajita (my pick), grilled chicken sandwich and we are still working our way thru the menu of this great takeout place. It's clearly popular with locals (you can order ahead for pickup), and it's all tasty. Very good value for the money.

I only stopped in for a Cuban coffee but man what a place! Coffee was amazing by the way. Wish I had more time to hang out and eat. Too bad I already had dinner. If there's one spot I wish I would have returned to this would be it.

5 of us stopped by 2 o'clock Sunday The man had trouble understanding what we order and ended up getting 1 less sandwich than we wanted plus ordered wheat bread and got white. The fries are just like McDonalds and unfortunately very cold (had 1). Normally I would've said something but I'm not sure they'd understand. It's an outdoor eatery... More

Good coffee; I had the egg cheese on croissant- was good, no complaints, though its not a difficult order. Husband had 2 eggs with sausage and roll- was nothing special- he did not care for sausage.
