Panini Cafe Expanding to Americana at Brand


Panini Cafe, found in locations from O.C. to the Valley, will soon open its seventh store, this one headed to Glendale Galleria. The restaurant has a big menu, visible online, of namesake breakfast, lunch, and dinner sandwiches, as well as Italian-influenced salads, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean appetizers like dolmadas, hummus, and baba ganouj, a signature salmon panino, and wraps with koobideh and falafel. A short wine list isn't much to sniff at, but it's affordable, while an espresso bar adds Cafe Cubano to a hearty mix of European offerings. Pizza, pasta, and desserts are also included, with the company ensuring fresh and made-from-scratch recipes on its website. Update: A reader correctly corrects us in saying Panini is actually bound for Americana next door.
