La Ideal Sandwich Shop has been around for many years, but I ate there for the first time recently and will definitely be frequenting the dive more often.  La Ideal specializes in Cuban sandwiches, coffee and other well-known Cuban dishes.  It really is a little dive of a sandwich shop located in the heart of Tampa on Tampa Bay Blvd. - the area is known as West Tampa. 

If you're craving an authentic Cuban sandwich or cafe con leche, La Ideal is the place to be.  The BEST thing that they serve though is their Cuban cheeseburger.  It's like a normal cheeseburger, but has little crispy french fries on it.  So good! 

They're open for breakfast and lunch and offer take-out.  They also offer free WI-FI...pretty hi-tech little joint.
