Remember when meats were freshly roasted in-house? When trust, respect and costumer service were priorities? If you don't remember those days, HK is here to show you what it was like. Hot Krust is a Panini Sandwich Kitchen in Orlando, Florida, offering delicious panini sandwiches, soups, and salads. Our recipes call for only the freshest gourmet ingredients. When you taste our fresh ingredients, you will immediately notice the difference, and will not want to go elsewhere. The idea behind Hot Krust is really simple. Fresh made panini sandwiches using high quality products at affordable prices. And since "fresh made" is what we aim for, processed meats are never part of our sandwiches. We offer

A delicious meal was served, and the staff are quite accommodating and love to help out customers. I would especially recommend the wide selection of hot sauces from Fat Cat. 4.5/5 for food, 5/5 for atmosphere, 4/5 for cost.

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.
