Financier for lunch

Good, warm paninis and beautiful looking desserts. Thank you for the head's up.
2 problems tho...the sandwich is tiny (possibly a good thing tho) and they seem to be very unorganized behind the counter. I waited a long time and was repeatedly asked what I had ordered. After bringing the lunch back to the office, I realise that they gave me a different dessert than I had ordered. (I just wanted a flan!). Anyhow, I'll definitely go back, probably tomorrow to try something new and perhaps the flan that avoided me today.

As for the panini...I had their San Danielle Prociutto with pesto, arugula, roasted tomato and mozzarella. It had a relatively generous portion of meat (relative to the overall size of the panini) and everything tasted very good. The bread was far less greasy than some you get (a good thing for sure) and had a serious crunch to it (possibly a bit more than I'd prefer). Overall a decent sanwich but I question the value. $7 was a bit of a stretch. It was worth $6.00 at best. If the olives they give you were better, I might give it more props.
