The dough experts at the recently opened Bread Box Bakery & Cafe bake seven types of bread fresh daily for building savory panini sandwiches. Dining duos unhinge lips and hips in a midmeal hula over handheld fare such as the hot hawaiian-chicken panini on ciabatta bread with fresh pineapple, sweet onion, and napa cabbage in a teriyaki glaze. Herbivores might opt for the tomato-basil panini, a focaccia-bread base layered with basil pesto, tomato, fresh mozzarella cheese, and fresh basil leaves. Free refills on fountain drinks prevent parchment from remaining dry, and a choice of a french roll, potato chips, or fresh fruit personalizes plate fringes. Paired patrons can sit at the front window’s counter, which, according to Susan Gottshall of the Morning Call, “makes a perfect people-watching perch,” as diners admire the colorfully tiled walls and use free WiFi to send each other electronic invitations to the next lunch date.
