Set on the street front among other restaurants, Leenie's stood out because they specialized in paninis and that was just what we needed at 1:00 on a Sunday. They had more tables open than their neighbors but we found out they were awaiting a liquor license and assumed that was why.
We picked a table on the front patio. The one waitress was definitely busy because no tables had been bussed in a while, but she quickly cleared our table for us. The menu had so many unique paninis that my husband and I decided to order 3 and share. The wait for our food was average.
We enjoyed all three sandwiches: turkey & apple combination, ham & bacon with brie, and a grilled portobello. I enjoyed the bread choice, not overwhelmingly crunchy. My favorite panini was the portobello - it had lots of flavor from caramelized onions & roasted red peppers. My husband liked the ham panini best but I felt the meat portion was a bit sparse. Each sandwich came with a side option of either chips, coleslaw or salad. We got chips and coleslaw. The chip portions are a little small, good, but not house made. The coleslaw was different, hint of vinegar, very tasty.
Our overall experience was good. The prices are fair, quality is good and portions are alright. Our server was very down to earth. They're doing a good job for just starting out. As they work out their kinks & get their liquor license, they'll surely become a hot spot.
