Hunger surrenders after a run-in with a gang of beach-themed specialty paninis, including the Speedo panini ($8.99), squeezed around prime rib and provolone, and the Lifeguard panini ($8.49), where italian sausage, pesto, and broccoli rabe form a handheld vessel that's both hearty and capable of staying afloat for up to eight hours in the ocean. To create the Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, chefs cram grilled chicken, caramelized onions, mushrooms, and horseradish dijon into a shapely package ($8.25).
During early hours, a Rise & Shine menu fuels the day ahead with specialty coffees alongside breakfast sandwiches and burritos filled to the brim with eggs, bacon, veggies, and cheese ($4.25+). Honoring the time-honored relationship between the Earl of Sandwich and his wife, Lady Scone, the eatery also slings a formidable array of cupcakes, danishes, and muffins ($1.50+), as well as a dessert panini made with Nutella and sliced almonds ($4.95).
Paninis and Bikinis
Chefs at Paninis and Bikinis press panini sandwiches in the kitchen, grilling ingredients such as oven roasted turkey, cranberry chutney, and brie cheese between slices of sourdough bread. In addition to the specialty sandwiches, they also toss crisp salads customized with sliced almonds, sundried tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese and pour mugs of coffee or fresh-brewed tea.
