Amazing Number of Choices!

This is a great little deli shop with an amazing number of offerings that are posted on six or eight blackboards hung about the room. This was our second visit, and both times we have come away completely happy and looking forward to the next visit when we are back over that way. We are there... read more

The service is good you place your order and seat yourself. It's more of a sandwich type of eatery and they have plenty to choose from. and not a bad one the list you can't go wrong. The seating is on the smaller side which makes it hard sometimes to get a seat.but well worth the wait.

There doesn't seem to be much to choose from in this part of town but no matter - this restaurant would be great even if there were lots of other options. It was very busy on the Tuesday afternoon in August when we visited. Clearly the place is well known. You order at the counter and your food is brought... More

Best sandwich (Croque Madame) of my life! Cheesecake was also delicious. This is the place to eat in MIchigan City. Atmosphere is lacking, but who cares when the food is this good?

I first came by this hole-in-the-wall bistro on TripAdvisor and told myself I had to stop in on my next visit to Michigan City. Once I got there I was unsure of where to park so I ran inside real fast to confirm with the cashier. She was not friendly, but managed to gesture to the back of the building... More

Went for lunch after reading so many good reviews here. This place does not disappoint! Everyone is greeted when they walk in, there seemed to always be a line but they work hard at getting your order and getting the people thru without making you feel rushed. The staff is helpful, not warm and fuzzy friendly, but friendly enough. :)... More

We live in Chicago and our family is in Michigan so we try to meet half way as often as possible. My mom came across Panini Panini on trip advisor and suggested we check it out. I don't even know where to begin, this place is fantastic. The food is out of this world good and the service is TOP... More

This rather small place has great food. Sandwiches, soup, pastries, and coffee. The best sweet roll like a danish is called the Jesuite. Excellent. The squash soup is the best. Half sandwich and soup is a perfect lunch.
