Walking down Thames St, we discovered Panini for Lunch. Good cup of soup each. I had the Italian and my wife the Veggie. The place was packed and everyone said their sandwich was very good. The place is a step down from street level with inside and small outside seating. Yes we would return.

Went there for a simple lunch with my family. Took them 45 minutes for a simple panini, and soup! I doubt they were making the soup from scratch so the 45 minutes for the soup blows my mind. People who came after us were served before us, when we asked why it was taking so long, all we got was... More

Great place to stop and get something before you hit the highway. You can use the restrooms and grab a snack and drink for the ride. Park in the back of the building for it's only 3.75 an hour instead of the 5 and up!

On a recent trip to Newport, I was looking for something quick and take-out. I found it at the Panini Grill. I had a barbecue chicken panini on wheat bread which came with potato salad.

The Panini Grill is a simple and non-assuming place. However, the food is very good. I had a meatball panini and my husband had sausage and peppers. We both enjoyed our sandwiches. The Panini Grill is a pleasant spot for soup and sandwiches. It is and ideal place for a nice lunch.

We were just looking for something quick to eat (counter service), and me being vegetarian, this place was ideal. Bonus for me: they have geeky decor! Star Wars stuff hidden all over, I love that sort of thing. And a couple veggie panini options for me, plus soups. Yum! Really pleased we stumbled into this little cafe!

Our lunch stop for our day in Newport. Paninis my husband and I had were very good, fresh bread and good flavor. Hit the spot for a hungry tourist on the move. Service a little slow but they were busy.
