Their menu has two "highly recommended" items - one chicken panini (they have several chicken paninis on the menu) and one chicken shish kebab. We ordered both. It came with a delicious lentil soup - definitely recommend that you try that. They only serve beers from bottles - no beers on tap. They have a wide range of wine selections.... More

Happened upon this place on an evening stroll from our hotel. The restaurant's name is actually a little misleading as their range of menu items is quite extensive, with far more things on offer than their paninis. My chicken kabob was plentiful and delicious and on special offer for just $10. Friendly, attentive service a great meal and a low... More

Their food is so delicious and even though they're crowded, the staff is very welcoming and nice. The hummus is plate is one of my favorites, so is their avocado and romaine salad is very flavorful. The plates are huge too. I can usually split a salad and hummus plate with someone and walk away full. Definitely a good value!

Delicious panini and soup lunches! Works out to $20 per person, totally reasonable particularity for being right off Rodeo Drive! I had an amazing chicken wrap with cucumber pickle tomatoes and hummus. Everything was very fresh, large portions, lots of herbs. We got here at 11:30 and by 12 it was packed. Definitely a language barrier but all turned out... More

Panini Cafe has many things going for it, not least in the City of the Car - very easy parking behind the resto. Free from 6:00 pm. The food is excellent, particularly its signature Chicken Kebab [$9.95!], an enormous and very tasty platter. You can sit outside on a covered patio and watch the Ferraris, Lambos and Rollers gliding or... More

Had some time to walk around the area, found this place. Sat outside and enjoyed watching the many exotic cars driving by. The food came out promptly and was pretty tasty. Turkey panini was good, could have used a little something to spice it up as it was a touch on the bland side.
