My girlfriends and I were in town for a vacay and went to Panini Panini for the 2nd time ever. We got different things and shared. Every single thing was delicious! One friend noticed how quiet we all were and someone else said we’re all...having a food-gasm. No joke. Yummo. The owner is so nice as well. Cute patio in the back made the most enjoyable lunch. Highly recommend!More

This place is truly a great find--wish I lived nearby! I had the grilled scallops sandwich with prosciutto, sliced pear & goat cheese. It was delicious! it came with a good sized side sald. I also noticed the entree salads--they were huge and looked amazing!...They had a number of French desserts. We had the lemon tarte, which was fantastic!More

WE LOVE THIS PLACE. I’ve never tasted food fresher. The people are so nice. If you get the chance to eat here you will not regret it! We eat something different every time and have not had one bad meal.

Food is excellent European style from actual Europeans. They advertise foods made with very few if any questionable ingredients, which makes me more confident in them than any other place around--or frankly of cooking myself these days. Owners and workers are incredibly friendly. I left...something in the building and the owner went in on a Sunday and checked for me. Fantastic people; Michigan City could use more people like this.More

Loved the sandwich options in this little lunch stop on Franklin Street. I thought the Cubano was wonderful. I usually prefer mustard on mine, but thought Their choice of condiments was extremely tasty. More importantly love the fact my wife could get a gluten-free sandwich...without a problem. Both enjoyed our lunch. A small side of some fruit and a salad was included. Little patio area and back to eat outdoors, located a few minutes from the beach.More

We stopped for a very pleasant lunch at Panini Panini earlier this month. The sandwiches were flavorful and dining on the patio was restful. Ordering was a trifle chaotic and the cannoli for dessert could have been better, but it was easily the best meal...that we have had in Michigan City.More

My husband and I come to shop at the outlets once or twice a year and we always stop at this place. Such nice people and quality food! Reminds me of London with the food. So good. I have to eat gluten free and they...have sandwiches with gluten free bread. Love love! Stopped today and got the chicken curry chicken salad. Delicious!More

Good sandwiches and quick service when we were there. Great variety of sections. You order at the counter and they bring the food. Ordering can take a while and there is a sign that if you are just picking up you shouldn't wait ( a...previous reviewer did.More

There were a few people in front of us in line and few more people that were seated and waiting for their food. That being said, it took us an hour and a half for our food to come. We ordered one salad and one...sandwich. There was also very little air, so we waited in nearly 90-degree heat. I don’t care if God himself is in the kitchen creating our meals, it should never take this long, without a warning, for something fast casual.More

Delightful and delicious! This cafe never disappoints. A wide variety of menu items all made with fresh ingredients and artfully yet simply presented. During peak times be prepared to wait, but don't let that stop you.

We ordered $80 worth of food and stood there at the one cash register for over 15 minutes while the cashier slowly dealt with a large group that ate in the restaurant. They should have a separate line or have the server handle the payment....Needless to say, when we finally got the food home, it was cold and not that great. If I were to give them another try, I would definitely eat at the restaurant and I would probably get a breakfast item instead of lunch.More

Simply put 1 in 20 places might be a 5. Everything has to be perfect. No lapses in anything. My food on both days was perfect. Try the grilled cheese. Also it was some of the best eggs Florentine i have ever had. So light...and fluffy.More

Went here with a girlfriend for a fun lunch. She had prosecco (who knew they carried that?) and tiramisu (which we shared). I had my perennial favorite from the old restaurant - the curry chicken sandwich - but it had changed so utterly (flavorless is...the best description, which is nuts for a curry sandwich!) that I didn't enjoy it. She had the Grav Lax and seemed content. I had been coming here for YEARS and this is the first time this sandwich disappointed me. That said, however, the new owners seemed very pleasant and helpful, and might be open to suggestion. Seemed to have all the old ingredients (bread, chicken, sun-dried tomato, etc.) but it didn't impress. Wouldn't order again, and now it's no longer my go-to spot to meet friends. :( BTW the prices haven't gone down. Just the quality. :(More

We had a wonderful lunch here. I had the crab cake salad and the crab cakes were superb! Two nice size crab cakes placed on a generous salad with coleslaw right under the cakes. 2 slices of watermelon and bread. My husband had the French...Onion soup and a ham and cheese sandwich which he enjoyed. Desserts looked yummy but we were full. Should have bought it to go, next time!!!More
