Just opening across the street from the Coastal Café is a new venture called Perks Panini Kabob Café and Grill (2736 Robie, 462-5555), which the sign says is “fresh, healthy, tasty… truly kabobelicious.”

It’s the brainchild of SMU assistant professor of finance Najah Attig who wanted to open a business in the changing north end in the wake of having lost a few dollars in the financial crisis, to instead, “invest in the real economy.”

In partnership with the Perks people, the place will satisfy all your espresso needs while also being a lunch deli, offering “exotic panini sandwiches with a perfect blending of European, Mediterranean, and Moroccan tastes, with healthy---low fat, low cholesterol---and fresh and natural ingredients,” explains Attig. “This will be a unique space in Nova Scotia, something innovative.”

He’s having the ciabatta and focaccia delivered daily from 24 Carrots Bakery (6300 Lady Hammond, 482-2424) for maximum freshness and has a deck to the side of the building for dining in the warm weather---ice cream will also available. The enthusiastic Attig figures he will be the final word on good taste. “If I love it myself, people who love food will also love it.”
