Great service from the staff at Il Panino!! As a new business to the town (Devonalds) we today had bacon rolls all round and by far were the most amazing rolls we have all ever tasted!!! This could be very dangerous with such an outstanding café on our doorstep!! will definitely be back for more!

It is with regret I write this as I have been going to this café for a number of years and think the current price increases over the last year are extortionate where the food does not reflect on these prices. There has never been any signs or notices put up to advise customers of the increase in prices, just... More

I have walked past this little gem so many times but never called in. I am sorry to say Bridgend has terrible cafes but this is a great place to eat.

I regularly meet my partner here for a quick lunch. Always efficient service, excellent coffee and the Panini's are perfect. Personal favorite is the bacon, bree & cranberry!

Their paninis are so good we now have Panini Friday in work!! I'm partial to their Mexican chicken with cheese and pineapple!! Yummy!! Lovely and spicy, always hot and fresh. My colleagues favourites are the chicken in pesto with sundried tomato paste and cheese which I hear is also yummy!! Bit of a squeeze inside as downstairs is quite small... More

I love it here whether to sit down and watch the world go by whilst enjoying my lunch or a takeaway baguette. Always lots of choice and the staff are lovely! Had the toffee apple hot chocolate today, it was lovely.
