There Can Be Only One Coffee House & Deli Panini Winner

A fun game involving local businesses and a winner gets a free meal on Patch.


In the end, there was only one reader to close enough to claim the right to be called winner. And that reader is:


Congratulations, Yvie. Your guess was but two cents over the actual price of the panini, $8.57. Please e-mail fairoaks@patch.com to claim your prize.

Original story:

The has been an institution in the Village for a long time, even if it's been operated by a number of different owners.

The deli is now back under operation by the property owners Munir Massoud and his son Tony, with a few added improvements to complement the Fair Oaks aesthetic.

Indeed, the the decor inside Fair Oaks Coffee House exudes its community, with original one-of-a-kind artwork from Fair Oaks local artist Hugh Gorman, chickens a-plenty, and did we mention the food? 

This particular panino (the singular form of panini - we learned something today!), comes brimming with smoked turkey, tomatoes, red onions, choice of cheese and a healthy heaping of guacamolé. Think you know how much one costs?

As always, the rules are simple: Be the first to guess the price of this sandwich including tax or be the closest to it when time runs out. The winner will receive a gift card in the same amount so you an enjoy your own turkey panini. If no one guesses correctly by 5:00 p.m. Monday, we'll award the prize to whoever guessed closest.
