Sandy’s Cafe

Coffee and Cuban sandwich shop popular with locals looking for an affordable to-go meal

Sandy's Cafe on White StreetIf you are looking for a low cost to-go meal, Sandy’s Cafe is a convenient carry-out cafe popular with locals in Key West.

With its iconic red and white striped awnings, walk-up window service on White Street, and long line of working locals waiting for the inexpensive and satisfying sandwiches and coffee, Sandy’s Cafe is, one could say, a Key West institution. Each morning Sandy’s serves a steady stream of cops, city workers, tradesmen, and service industry folks – a testament to its consistency, affordability, and hearty servings.

Attached to M&M laundromat (for a long time, this cafe was known as M&M’s) and decidedly humble, the cooks at Sandy’s quickly prepare Cuban pressed sandwiches served on fresh Cuban bread and toasted in a panini press. Favorites include the breakfast sandwiches and the Cuban Mix – the unofficial sandwich of Key West and packed with sliced ham, pork, Swiss cheese, and pickles.

Cuban coffee is served. Strong espresso can be ordered in numerous sizes: the tiny and economical “bucci” is a bit bigger than a thimble’s worth, a “colada” is four-times as much. Most popular is “cafe con leche,” the Cuban version of the Italian latte: espresso with steamed milk.

Sandy’s stays open late-night and is a popular place for an after-Duval Street snack. You’re sure to meet a local.

Location: 1026 White Street
