First let me say I came at lunch, so it was loud, not terrible but it makes chatting difficult. The food as good though, really good. And there was a lot, a lot. The service is spotty. We had a waitress that was good when we gave our order but then when the order was delivered by a man we... More

After spending an hour in Beverly Hills central shopping area finding nothing but eye-wateringly high prices at crushingly busy restaurants we were happy to stumble across Panini Café. It was busy enough to be popular but not so much so you couldn’t get a table. And the menu was sensibly priced. So we were pleased to find the food was... More

This restaurant has exceptional service and a beautiful location. Sit outside if you are able to enjoy the scenery. The food is fresh and you are given ample portion sizes.

Nice relaxed place to eat on a Sunday morning before church. We sat outside and people watched while waiting for our food. The food was good, I had the breakfast combo which wasn’t too much food, but it was very good. The prices were reasonable, and there was free parking nearby.

Great atmosphere to sit in the outdoor dining and people watch in Beverly Hills. Excellent food with lots of healthy options. Huge portions. Great location right next to a public parking deck.

Always large portions, good tasting, at reasonable prices. Menu is varied enough so you can order something different each time.

We always like to visit Panini on Camden and Santa Monica. This is an easy walk from most hotels in the Beverly Hills area. Nice patio to take a break while shopping and enjoy a glass of wine. Hummus and any of the Mediterranean entrées are guaranteed to please. Try the trio of hummus. If you want the 'trio' to... More

The food was awesome, the environment was OK. It's a cafe after all but the Persian food was served was one of the best I had.

Hard to believe there are good deals to be had in Beverly Hills, but Panini Cafe is one. My husband ordered the "must have" chicken kebob and I had the date salad. Both were very tasty. No line, good food, outdoor seating and good prices make this a great stop for a casual lunch.

My wife and I ate here for some lunch whilst shopping. All waiters were amazing, great service. You have a choice of salad, soups or chips with any panini or sandwich you order. The Greek salad is to die for. When I was about to bite into my chicken pesto panini I noticed a hair. I told a waiter and... More

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
