Panini Café is a decent little eatery that offers a small range of food and good drinks. The service here is fast. I received my food in no time. The stay chicken salad I ate was yummy and so was the slice I had for dessert. Big proportions for dessert as well. There may be trendier cafes on Pako, but... More

Have walked past this cafe numerous times but actually got the chance to stop in with my daughter for lunch recently. What a fantastic welcoming place, we had a window seat onto Pakington Street but there is plenty of seating outside if you want to eat al fresco. The food was great, tasty and well presented. The best coffee I've... More

Poor service. Expensive food. Terrible quality of food. Save your money and eat at the other better cafe's along Pakington street.

This little gem offers a great range of paninis at very reasonable prices. Good coffee is also available as well as cakes and biscuits if you can fit them in after lunch. Situated right in the heart of Pakington Street this is ideal place for a quick lunch, coffee or afternoon tea. :)

Paninis is one of those cafes that attracts regulars. The coffee is good. Plenty of choices for lunch and decent seating inside and out. Their food is fresh and satisfying and the staff are always friendly. You can't go wrong here if a simple lunch is what you're after.
