Great place! Enjoyed the award winning desserts, too! The patio with seating and umbrellas is the perfect stop for lunch. ♥♥♥

On a nice day, get a table outside at Sandra's downtown. My go-to is the chicken salad melt. Never disappoints!

Mostly outside seating, with limited daytime hours, the salad & sandwich choices were very good and with very reasonable pricing. The desserts looked good but we passed on this visit. Very pleasant staff and quick service!

The desserts are to die for, but... More

Sandra's is a MUST visit darling experience in Fairhope. Right on the corner, you can sit outside in pleasant weather and enjoy the downtown area as well as great sandwiches and desserts. Whenever in Fairhope, I do try to eat here! It is ALWAYS good and NEVER disappointing. Do try the reuben! Yum.

We went here for lunch on Black Friday and found shrimp salad as a special today. There was so much shrimp and the dressing was home made. The shrimp were perfectly cooked. What a pleasant surprise.

Sandra's Place is a cute little corner cafe with outdoor seating in Fairhope. The sandwiches are prepared fresh and they are all delicious, the desserts, especially the giant slices of cake are to die for! You order at the counter and the ladies bring it out to you. There is limited seating inside so get there for lunch early in... More
