De-lish panini sandwiches right down the street from Penny Ice Creamery. Make your day that much better and have lunch at Cafe Limelight and a sweet treat at Penny Ice Creamery afterward. My idea of an ideal afternoon!

Came here when the innkeepers of the Adobe on Green Street recommended it. It feels like you are having a meal at a good friend's house. Simple tasty menu of sandwiches, soup and salad, Nice desserts and drinks and great music. A small, casual oasis in downtown.

Although I've been at the Limelight many times, this is my first review. The food always takes a little time to reach you..but it's worth the wait. The pannini sandwiches are so mouth watering. The soups creative and tasty. And, since one of the owners comes from the south, you are asked do you want "sweet tea" or "unsweetened" when you order ice tea. I highly recommend it, especially cause the service is good... (not a thing you often say about casual dining establishments in Santa Cruz.)

Came here on a recommendation to try the owner's home made hummus. Boy, was it great. this is a cozy little out of the way place with limited hours and menu that feels like you are in a friend's living room. Hubby had a marvelous grilled sandwich. Everything here looked fresh and good.
