Good food

Stopped for lunch. Food was good but you sat on a wooden bench on the porch to eat it which was not the most comfortable way to eat.

Lots of stuff for sale here and most of it too expensive. They will, however, make you an awesome sandwhich while you wait. The turkey club is good and so is the cuban

I'd been in here before to pick up ice and some small things, not realizing how good their deli is. I had an Italian sub and homemade guacamole. Both were delicious! This is a great spot to pick up sandwiches and snacks before hitting the beach. So tasty!

East End Deli / Sanibel Oasis Cafe Black Beans are a vegetarian favorite that we make and sell over 3,000 orders a year. Sanibel Oasis Cafe provides Fresh Wild caught Shrimp for the Shrimp Salad and is the newest offering... More

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.

We and the Shrimp thank you! Sustainable resource from right here around Sanibel. Local Sanibel Shrimp provide the fresh ingredients rather than "asian farm raised" Shrimp. It's a S#*T ton of work but worth it and the Shrimp not used in the Salad and Shrimp Taco is used for our Shrimp Chowder base, also made in-house fresh. Enjoy the Sanibel... More

Thank you for the heads up, the 'Bulldog' sandwich was dropped 4 years ago and sometimes the online community grabs a menu from a specific time, probably said East End Deli and not Sanibel Oasis Cafe which we started transition to 3 years ago. Our menu is updated yearly. You ordered the "Tom Turkey" which is turkey, sorry but Turkey... 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.
