I have a breakfast meeting every Tuesday at Panalivo. I always order the same thing, Yoghurt Parfait. Everything is made from scratch and the coffee is to die for! Dinners and lunches are amazing as well.

One year we had a fabulous romantic Valentine's night dinner at Panolivo ( need reservations far in advance for special events), and on another visit, a steaming (huge) bowl of cafe au lait in the late morning. Yet another time, a great burger at lunch before heading home from a wine tasting weekend in Paso Robles.

You might not make it past the pastries display. Good thing it is protected by a glass case, or you would want to grab a French pastry or a cookie. It's great to select a bag of treats for the drive home. Or have one with your coffee. Or for dessert. Or all of the above.

Worth a visit any time of the day. Great French bistro menu items, and standards with a french twist. Very nice bar too! Got kids or dogs? Kids menu, and your doggies can join you on the patio.

Last dinner seating 8:30 p.m.

My wife and I stopped by Panolivo for lunch on our way down from Santa Cruz and picked this place because they allow dogs on their outside patio. We had the meat loaf panini and the supreme club panini which were really good and shared a bowl of vegetable soup. Our server was very nice and good at getting our food out quick and plenty of refills of drinks. Will definitely come back next time we are in Paso.

Great little high-value French bistro in Paso. Also great bakery products. Managed by husband and wife team (true France natives!) who truly care about the business.

We found ourselves driving around downtown Paso Robles looking for a lunch spot. After eyeballing a few prospects we settled on Panolivio.

They started with water served in wine glasses with a extra bottle left on the table (I've always liked that).

The menu offered lots of great choices. We chose the panini club with side salad. The sandwich was awesome, the side salad was minimal & just so-so. The service was prompt and casual friendly.

The prices for the panini lunches were quite a bit more than I'm usually willing to spend for lunch, but quality costs, right?
The also had a sweet variety of tasty looking pastries and tarts (pricey though).

Overall, nice placev with good food & service
