Very friendly staff and quick service. The Reuben panini is excellent if you like blue cheese. I had the meat lover’s panini and it was delicious. The air-fried fries were also delicious.

The food is served quickly and the workers are very hospitable. I got “Sal’s Curry Chicken” panini and was pleasantly surprised with how spicy it was. Not too mild and not too spicy.

We chose here because white castle isn't opened yet. Total bummer! However the food and customer service did not let us down. This is a healthier lunch and the food is extremely fresh. The panini bread was crisp on the outside and soft inside. The...spicy Sal was extremely spicy; you've been warned. The cheese was great. The chutney curry mustard is life changing. It's out of this world. The chicken was good but really dry. That's why this ended up a four. The fries were very good and you couldn't tell they were baked. Customer service was top notch and helpful. I would recommend this place and try it again for sure!More

I had no idea that fried food could taste so good if it wasn't fried! Waffle fries, sweet potato waffle fries and tater tots. All air fried and so much better for you than fried food. I go back to this place all the time...just for the tots. Incredible.More

I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to try it on my Orlando trip. The place is a bit tricky to find. It is a small place with only a few tables in a strip mall. There are some outdoor tables. I decided...to order take out. The panini was delicious and the prices very affordable. There are many interesting options on the menu. I will definitely stop here again on my next Orlando trip. I highly recommend it.More

We were getting ready to head home from Orlando on Sunday and wanted to find a quick bite to eat with an outdoor area so we could bring our dog with us. This was the perfect place! Everyone was so nice and the food was...delicious! A very sweet lady (I'm assuming the owner) came outside to check on us several times, chatted with us and struck up conversation with a 6 year old daughter (who can be somewhat shy)... She even checked on our pup! It's hard to find that genuine kind of service nowadays. We will definitely be back!!More

We ordered from here using the DoorDash App. It arrived quickly and everything was correct. They bagged the food well and everything was labeled. It was nice and hot. Most importantly everything tasted great. I had the Philly Cheese Panini. Awesomely I should have ordered...two so good.More

I could literally eat there every single day. Their food was amazing. Delicious. Great spot for a quick panini and with so many options. Menu varies from vegan 👍 to chicken to lamb to seafood. So many options. The flavors were outstanding and original. I...definitely give this place 5 out 5 and will be visiting again !More

Just needed something to share after a day out and read great reviews so have it a go. Turkey wrap was tasty, fresh and didn't take long to prepare.

My husband and I just enjoyed lunch at an outside table. We each had a panini and enjoyed trying the various sauces available. Highly recommend for a quick but tasty meal!

Gave this resturant a try based on other Trip Advisory reviews. Who knew a Panini would be so good, several options to try and can get waffle fries, curly fries and sweat potato fries. There is a section where they offer local sauces from sweet...to spicy to hot, great addition and taste on food. This is a great lunch or dinner spot, can’t go wrong!More

Sorry we didn’t see your question earlier, we use a ciabatta and can press your panini flatter if that’s what you would like. Should have pics up on the profile for you to see Have a great one!

I am GF so the only option for that is the UDIS sandwich bread they carry. They do have ham and cheese.
