Located in the back street of Washington Avenue on Miami Beach, this sandwich spot is acclaimed to be one of the best in Miami. The open-air bar setting with the simple, vibrant-colored decor gives off a casual mix of French and Miami feel. Saucisson Sec ($7.40) is the most popular on the menu and is filled with paper-thin salami and fresh brie cheese. You can add as many classic toppings as you want without paying extra, including green peppers, veggies, cornichons (French pickles), and their "secret weapon" (their words) homemade French mustard vinaigrette.

Their Seafood Sandwich ($7.40) is delicious as well, stuffed with a generous amount of shrimp and crab meat mixed with mayo. There are two types of bread to choose from—go for the classic French bread over the slightly more expensive croissant (85 cents extra). Either bread is superbly fresh, as they have to restock it three times a day due to the high demand.
