We headed to Sunny Side Kitchen in Escondido, CA and were gastronomically pleased with what we found. Our paninis were delicious and we had to grab some of the mini cookies for our trip home.

Small place with marvelous tasting panninis.....many fresh herbs. Could have been a little more turkey on sandwich but, after all, it is a pannini. Outside seating on sidewalk was available.
