Great Cuban sandwich and a delicious grilled quarter chicken means we'll be back. Simple sidewalk dining on a side street makes this place special.

I live a few doors down and was in a hurry walking over this morning to grab some coffee. As I was approaching I saw a group of 12 cross the street and walk up to the window right before I got there and my heart sank. As I was deciding whether or not I could forgo the coffee and... More

Family (four generations), friends, and I have been enjoying Sandy's creations for 20 years. I'm a regular visitor to Key West and as soon as possible after each arrival I head to Sandy's for cafe con leche, Cuban bread with butter, and more. I return each morning for con leche and bread, and I and my companions also frequently enjoy... More

I love Sandy's Cafe on White Street. They have a couple of dozen items on the menu. It is mostly Cuban and Mexican food. For under $10.00 you can get a fantastic Cuban mix sandwich and fries. It is a takeout restaurant and they have small stools and a small area to eat just outside. They seem to have long... More

Stopped on the way back from beach for a Cuban sandwich, it was jam packed and tasted really good, very casual place with laundry next door & a dog shop across the road.

Food is always good and don't forget the Bucci. Max always greets you with a smile. We go for breakfast at least twice a week.

4 meals in two days and all were amazingly good. Cafe con Leche was the best coffee I've had in Florida. Fast and friendly service. Delivery came promptly to the hotel. But the coffee, don't miss the coffee!!

I have relatives that live on Key West, so I visit regularly. Sandy’s isn’t just another Cuban sandwich/ breakfast shop, it’s part of the community. They don’t treat people like tourist, they treat you like part of the family and I love that about them. Vey local, very Key West.
