Panini Cafe -- Santa Monica

I’ve never been to a Panini Cafe. Yelp reviews seem decent enough, and the menu seems pretty inoffensive. It’s taking over the large spot next to the Barnes and Noble in SaMo (on the Wilshire side).

The DSW Shoe Warehouse is gone, and the modern façade has been removed, revealing a rather attractive (if totally dilapidated) exterior. Seems like it was a furniture store before. Does anyone know what’s going in (food-related or otherwise)?

I like Panini Cafe’s chicken kabob - used to work downtown near the one on 9th and I was addicted to it.

The kabob there is definitely a good deal.
