Wow! this was a simple Panini that packed flavor and delight! Off the beaten path, in a quiet courtyard setting and so worth the visit! We will definitely eat here again.

I'd first discovered Panini Pete's in Destin, Florida, but was delighted to see that there was one near our weekend destination of Gulf Shores. Panini Pete's is situated in the back of several businesses, with a New Orleans style feel to it. The food did not disappoint, it was just as fabulous as its Destin counterpart. The Paninis are delish,... More

If we talk about the food... delicious! The 3 of our 4 patrons ordered panini and they were nicely crisp with tasty ingredients. The burger was also tasty and well-cooked. The home-made chips were also wonderful. However, the wait was too long for the simplicity of the food we ordered. And the wait staff was uninspired. One waitress stood around... More

Once sitting down, we were promptly greeted and our dog was brought a bowl of water without us even asking! Therefore, already they had gotten an... More

My Godchild was visiting, and she travels all the time and loves great food. I knew without a doubt I wanted her to dine at Panini Pete's for lunch. She had a flavorful burger she raved about and we had a split order of beignets too, half regular and the others were Mardi Gras ( colorful sugar on top with... More

I eat here more than I should but the food is amazing and the atmosphere is whimsical/relaxing. I highly recommended stopping by and having a panini.

This is a really cool little spot in the "french quarter" part of Fairhope, Al. Their beignets are great and some of the sandwiches looked really good. There is a nice little courtyard area to eat with live music. This is a must if you are in Fairhope.
