So, traveling from Pittsburgh to escape the cold weather... we were in love and looking for coffee. Roxane made it happen, turning an otherwise fun evening into a night to remember. She recommended the Buchi and the rest is history. Still savoring its sweet flavor (with a kick) or was that my lover?

Authentic - I enjoyed it. Crazy set up it is adjoined to a laundry mat - good service - good overall sandwich - a classic place in key west - If on a Cuban Crawl try this one, Kims, Annas, Seybonay, and 5 brothers. This came in #2 Kims #1 for me.

Our favorite thing to do back in the days of being poor and living in Key West was to get Cuban toast and Cafe Con Leche at Sandy's. Sometimes it was while doing laundry and sometimes it was just to have the best coffee on the island! I am so grateful they are still there. Missing this place right now.

A nice café con leche to help start off your day the right way. Cheese toast and café con leche is a locals favorite. So glad that you still have wonderful memories and we welcome you back whenever you come home to visit. :) More

Sandy's was always on my list for a snack for a late delivery or pick up. So this time I ordered at the window their Cuban mix which is famous as one of the iconic sandwiches in Key West.

This is a local's favorite spot. Sandy's has been around longer than I have!! Great Cuban and Mexican food! They have everything from Cafe con Leche to Tacos al Pastor. I suggest heading over there on early Sunday morning (the lines get super long) and grabbing a large con leche to go and strolling down to White St. pier for... More
