“Super Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

These folks manage to make eggs extra special. Their Florentine eggs Benedict was glorious. This little spot deserves your attention when you're in Paso. You won't be disappointed.

“Great stop off of Route 101”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

My wife and I frequently stop in at Panolivo when we are traveling up and down Route 101. It reminds us of a Paris bistro in the middle of California.

The food is consistently good. We usually have a light meal such as one of their delicious soups or a freshly made sandwich. The waitresses are always pleasant and the service is timely. This is not a fast food joint, so sometimes good food takes a little time.

A great place for a restful break from the freeway. Easy to get on and off the freeway at Paso Robles.

I'm really curious about the 2 revues talking about middle eastern food. Have never seen anything even remotely like a schwarma or a kabob here.

“Okay late lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Stopped through here for a quick late lunch because I read on TA they have gluten free options. Ambiance reminds me of a cafe or deli. Waitress was very attentive. Huge gluten free menu, which I appreciated. I ordered the GF French Onion soup - it was okay..not bad, but not wonderful. Wanted to buy one of their GF rolls, but was told it was like cornbread so passed. Hubby ordered a sausage soup (very bland) and something else that he said was okay. It worked for what we needed, but probably wouldn't go out of our way to stop back.

“Nice Bistro, nice selection”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

We went to eat Mediterranean at Jaffa Grill but the salad looked yummy so we ordered one of those. Ordered the Mediterranean chicken salad in the larger size. It was a decent size salad with a great dressing but definitely not worth $18 with one chicken breast, lettuce and some vegetables.

“The Cafe Section is lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

A friend and I went to get Middle Eastern food and ate in the Café portion of the restaurant. We found the food to be very good (not superior). One of us got a Shwarma plate, the other Kabobs. Both were very tasty and the portions were quite fair. The only "criticism" is that the small café section is quite small. Stick to the sit down restaurant area if you want to have any kind of intimate conversation or privacy.
