Fresh-baked goods, fresh-brewed coffee and creative sandwiches served up in relaxed, roomy surroundings..
Bright colors and comfortable furniture give this chain cafe a laid-back feel, with scattered tables that beckon coffee-sipping readers, chatters and diners. All baked goods--bagels, muffins, two dozen kinds of bread--are made fresh on the premises. Sandwiches include turkey-artichoke panini and Asiago roast beef, plus standards like chicken salad and smoked turkey. Soups change daily, but popular choices like broccoli and cheese, chicken noodle and French onion are always on the menu.
Great place for a relaxed lunch with tasty bread, soups, and sandwiches. Great sweet tea too!.
Me and my girlfriend love Panera Bread for lunch or as a great stop for baked goods. We haven't really found any location to be lacking in food or service and the locations are always spacious and condusive to relaxed eating and lounging. The Mandarin store has been the superior compared to others spread around town though. The soups and sandwiches have been outstanding and we usually go with a combo of the two. I recommend the smokehouse turkey and forest mushroom while she loves to get a bread bowl, bowl shaped sourdough hollowed out and filled with choice soup. The baked goods are delicious and you can always pick up a good dessert for a tasty after dinner treat for home. We think the sweet tea has been the best so far from everywhere we've been.
Overall, I would highly recommend Panera for a lunch spot with the wide menu of soups, salads, and sandwiches. Baked goods and artisian breads provide another great reason to stop by. The atmosphere is relaxed with nice ambiance and free wireless access for notebook users.
