Great food - great atmosphere!

You like ethnic? They have it. You like simple? They have it. Menus on big boards that they keep changing. I don't want huge portions, so I ordered half a curry sandwich and cup of soup of the day. Mine was tomato soup, my husband's was black bean and veggies. Both delicious. I recommended to my... read more

We go there for lunch and we have never been disappointed. Small on the inside but a large menu that offers many options each of them gourmet quality. Always look forward to dining there.

What a wonderful surprise! Lunch after shopping. Extensive menu, service was excellent. Food was amazing. Owner makes all selections and she offered samples of soup and Black Forest cake that absolutely melted in your mouth. The only negative is they need a bigger place because they are going to have expand to accommodate the crowd! Highly recommend. I will be... More

I always wonder if reviews are true or as they claim that some are just friends and relatives posting to get business. NOT SO for PANINI PANINI! Grew up in Chicago where there is incredible cuisine, hard to match here in NW IN. I live in Hobart and have an incredible restaurant, Bistro 54, but limited days & times of... More

We stop at Panini Panini on our drive to Chicago, and every time it is fabulous! Words cannot do this little diamond in the rough justice. First, the staff is precious, kind and goes out of their way to make sure we were taken care of (we ate at 3pm and it wasn't they crowded). Second the food. We tried... More

Panini Panini is a great lunch stop. They have an extensive menu and everything I have tried has been delicious. Even better than the food is the exceptional service. The lady who is normally working there, I believe she is the owner, is amazing. She always makes sure you have enough to drink and that you are happy with your... More

We found this place searching for a good place for a snack on Trip Advisor. And it proved how helpful this app can be! This place is a little gem with a great variety of sandwiches and salads. No fuzz, just good food. You felt welcome at once and the staff was very friendly!

This restaurant serves delicious food in a very relaxed style. It feels like being in Paris or Tuscany where great food is a given! The variety of food is wonderful and it is a really good value. I just wish she was opened for dinner!

I was going to title my review the best sandwich place but really that does not sum up the experience. There are so many options that you can order sandwiches, entrees, quiche, pasta, fish, salads.... Everything I have ever eaten at this restaurant is great. My only regret that is that I can't go there for dinner, only open for... More

You have to stop in to know what is there! Cafe with quite a menu and spectacular desserts. We ate outside on the patio. Food was great and everyone there was very friendly. Can't wait to go back!
