A local suggested that we try Sandy's, and we've kept coming back ever since! Servings are huge and food is great. We did try their delivery service once, and that was not as good. So, we make the trek to White Street at least a couple times each visit.

We went there for a reasonably priced and tasty lunch and got it. My wife and I split the "Sandy" sandwich and it was more than enough for both of us. The fries were delicious also. The service was just OK. The waitresses were definitely more friendly with the locals but we didn't mind too much.

We stopped at Sandy's for a quick bite after seeing the open air window and stool seats. It was my husbands first Cuban sandwich and coffee and we ended up eating here again on our last day he enjoyed it so much. Great place to park the bike, grab a bite and people watch while you eat.

This is a local place. You walk up to a counter at a laundromat. We know about it because my husband grew up here. The food is delicious: breakfast or lunch. Yummy! Cuban coffee, cheese toast, breakfast sandwiches on Cuban bread, picadillo... there are so many options coming from this small window. Order your food and take it to the beach, a picnic or wherever. You may strike up a neat conversation with a local while you wait.
