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

After Fantasy Fest parade, we got Cuban sandwiches (which come with fries) and an order of beef tacos. Having lived in Little Havana for two years, I know my Cuban food. The Cuban sandwiches were not very good. The meats were bland and processed looking. The tacos were average to poor quality. The fries were boring. Fortunately, prices were cheap... More

Small counter only service on White Street with the very best authentic Cuban food !! Very fast service and they do have a few seats outside. Indoor counter is inside the laundromat in case you need to use that as well for your clothes or in my case for the blankets that are too big for the home washing machine.... More
