We ate at Panini Pete’s on a nice warm day so we were able to enjoy the excellent food on the outdoor shady patio area. So nice. Service was friendly and efficient. It’s freshly prepared and so delicious. We would love to eat here again.

Whether you eat them there or get them to go, get some! They are hot and fresh, dusted with a lot of confectioners sugar, and served with lemon wedges. Pair with some dark, fresh, hot Community Coffee.

We had lunch at Panini Pete's during a visit to Fairhope. We sat in the gazebo, which is a very beautiful setting. For lunch, we had sandwiches, which were just OK. I had the hamburger, which was mostly bun and a small portion of meat....More
