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

We arrived about noon. Wow. The line was to the door. They are very busy making enormous sandwiches. The wait is long so if you don't have a lot of time, come when you do. The sandwiches are very good. While waiting I saw several people order baked items. All baked items are bakery quality. The owner never sliced a... More

This place is amazing. I've loved everything I've ever gotten. The menu is huge so everyone could find something. They have pasta, burgers, steak, quiche, gyros, and of course paninis. So good

Was referred to Panini Panini from a friend. Excellent! Huge menu selection, but not overwhelming!Sandwiches, salads, soup of the day, and pasta dishes! Large sandwich with just enough of a salad on the side. Parking in back. Outdoor seating. Will go back, again and again! A must when in Michigan City!

I've eaten here twice so far and definitely will be going back! I had a chicken salad sandwich and it was amazing! Very fresh food. Great service. They also have a small area in the back to dine outdoors.

This is the second time we have been to Panini Panini and we have been impressed each time. We don't live in the area, but after our last experience, we made sure to swing by this lovely cafe again! The owner is an absolute delight; the place runs like clock work and the food is fresh, beautifully presented and DELICIOUS.... More
