The paninis are good, but the beginets steal the show. The outdoor seating under old trees in a courtyard with a French Quarter theme adds to the atmosphere. This is a great place to sit and relax for a brunch / snack while visiting downtown Fairhope.

We had both breakfast and lunch at Panini Pete's Cafe and Bakeshoppe. Food excellent and staff is wonderful. It was a beautiful day so eating outside was such a pleasure. There was a line for lunch however, it went quickly. If I lived in Fairhope I'd make that my breakfast stop and lunch stop on a regular bases. Can't wait... More

My wife and I were visiting in the Fairhope, AL area on Feb. 13th 2017and we decided to have lunch. Panini Pete's is located in the French Quarter. It is very quaint and has a beautiful setting and a large courtyard outdoor seating area. It was full when we got there so we went inside. The restaurant is so popular... More

We've been in love with this place ever since it opened, and have made it our go-to spot, especially for breakfast. Recently they've changed their bread supplier which makes their famous paninis even better. Fresh ingredients, great made-in-house sauces and mozzarella, the best coffee, beignets to did for and super service makes this place one you don't want to miss.

Thank Creekside2us
