Portions are generous at Pounds & Ounces, and this Nutella Panini ($8) is no exception. We've seen Nutella pizzas and Nutella toast, but this sandwich is a new one. It's not made with bread, but buttery slices of housemade pound cake that are quickly toasted on the panini press. The surface is crisp, dusted in powdered sugar. After declaring each bite to be your last, you find yourself going until it's completely gone. Wash it down the whipped cream-topped strawberry milkshake—who needs lunch anyways?
