Kool Korner Sandwiches is a sandwich shop that was located at 790 Montgomery Highway in the Vestavia Hills City Center in Vestavia Hills from 2009 to 2015. The shop specializes in Cuban-style hot-pressed sandwiches.

Kool Korner was first opened in 1985 by Cuban native Ildefonso Ramirez and his wife Lucia in Midtown Atlanta, Georgia. It started as a grocery store with a sandwich counter, but gradually the sandwich business took over.

When the landlord decided to sell the building in 2008, Ramirez closed the shop and moved to the Birmingham area to retire closer to his son Bill. In June 2009, however, father and son re-opened Kool Korner in the former Firehouse Subs location near Publix Supermarket in Vestavia Hills.

In 2015 the Ramirezes could not reach an agreement with the Blackwater Management Group for a new lease. The shop was closed while a new location was sought.

Kool Korner later reopened at the Vestridge Commons shopping center at 1360 Montgomery Highway.
