Panolivo Restaurant Review: House-made pastries are still among the biggest draws at this casual eatery, but the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus offer up a decent range of French, Mediterranean and California-inspired fare. For breakfast, we like the croque monsieur, the smoked salmon scramble, or the weekend Spanish egg torta. For lunch and dinner, we tend towards classic French favorites such as French onion soup, quiche Lorraine and boeuf bourguignon, but we’ve also been happily tempted by the meatloaf panino that’s slathered with caramelized onions. Not surprisingly, given the bakery aspect, this is also a fun place to go for just coffee and dessert, such as profiteroles or tarte Tatin. Gluten-free and kids’ menus are also available, as is beer and wine, including some French labels. Service can be spotty, but overall this is a comfortable spot for all ages.
