Simple friendly cafe

We stopped here in the middle of a wine tasting day and it was just what we were looking for. We just had a sandwich and coffee, but it was freshly made and nice, and the service was quick and friendly. The cafe is on a quiet corner just off the centre of town and is attractive and kept to... read more

People were friendly, but food was just SoSo. My wife order just soup & salad and the soup was cold. I order a sandwich and it had no taste to it. Kind of expensive for the quality of food.

One of the best. Very cheerful and comfy corner bistro with mostly French inspired menu. Lots of lighter menu options. Great salads and the French pastries and baked goods are made on site and of highest quality. Reasonably priced and good service.

We enjoyed an early dinner here after exploring various wineries all afternoon. I was ready for a healthy salad to top off a day of cheese and delicious wines and Panolivo hit the spot! Sidewalk tables, friendly staff, and the crab cakes with fresh greens and a light lemony dressing was just right. My husband's chicken panini and cup of... More

Panolivo has fresh, tasty offerings. Their large lattes are very enjoyable as well. The color scheme of the restaurant is pleasant.

Two friends and I were looking for a good early dinner. We saw that Panolivo had good reviews and was open through the day. We had three different items that were seafood and we were all pleased. We shared a nice bottle of local wine that was priced well. We wanted to try the desserts because they looked excellent, but... More

So good, so, so good! Wonderful breakfast, lunch or dinner spot. If you don't have time for a meal, at least stop in and grab some desserts to take home with you. They are all amazing!!!

I would say that I am not what I would describe as an adventurous person when it comes to trying new cuisine..........I am so happy to announce that the meal at the Panolivo totally changed that for me. I cannot wait to go back there again!!!!!!!
