Amazing restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Food is great and portions are large all while being very reasonably priced! Service is great, can get crowded so definitely make a reservation (I think they take them)

Have visited before & was keen to return this holiday. We sat outside in very comfortable temperatures & enjoyed poached eggs with ham & toast and toast with pepper bacon. Cheery service from everyone who approached our table. Reasonably priced too.

We've been going to Panini for years, always living it. From great falafel and kobedeh kabobs to egg scrambles and pat meal, the menu offers flavor and comfort and a feeling of the Eastern Mediterranean. Service is basic but friendly. You don't wait long for...More

Best take out value. Order the family meal after a long day or when unexpected guests arrive expecting food. You will get some of the best chicken kabobs money can buy, moist and delicious combined with a generous salad and rice.

This is a go to for a healthy meal. I don't know how to get a better chicken kabob and the iced tea is very fresh and high quality. Difficult to beat and a true value.
