This no-nonsense sandwich line (and you bet there are line-ups) has edited operations down to the basics, which are the ciabatta panini. But oh, what sandwiches. The ciabatta, the condiments (even the mustard is made in-house) and the meaty fillings are good. This is panini of the succulent sort with just-roasted meats, still glistening from cooking. The marinated beef sandwich had deep flavour and the porchetta sandwich featured pork loin that had been rubbed down with fennel, garlic and chili salt, then rolled in pork belly rubbed with rosemary, parsley and a salt rub. Enjoyable are the eccentric room, the music and buzz in this one-track cafe.
