Inspired by cuisines of Italy and the Mediterranean, Panini Cafe aims to offer old-world favorites with a healthy, modern twist for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Playing to millennials’ penchant for brunch, it serves its breakfast menu—including high-protein dishes made with farm-fresh organic eggs—until 3 p.m. on weekends. It has continued to grow in its home state of California, with a recent Los Angeles opening near Loyola Marymount University and offices for Facebook, Google, Yahoo and Microsoft.
