Yum!

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.

This restaurant has many stellar reviews. I can't imagine why. It's not bad, but it's no more than that. I'll start by revealing my prejudices. Any place of public accommodation that does not take American Express is simply being cheap, and it offends me. I was also put off by the signs admonishing me to bus my own table. The... More

There aren't as many surprises when you are an adult but this place was through an ally and so great. The food was delicious and the service was friendly. I tried to take the wonderful looking macaroon to my wife and the cashier saw the look in my eye and said in a lighthearted manner, "I think I better take... More

Went here mid afternoon on a Thursday with some other folks. There were only 2 people in line ahead of us and plenty of seats. I ordered the grilled scallop sandwich. It was very good. Good flavor, nice lightly toasted bread and the scallops were well prepared (not overdone as I feared might happen). It pared well with the pears... More
