I visited Panera several times, and really enjoyed both the food and atmosphere. The soup and half sandwich meal is great, seemed health and provided the good variety (including choice of bread roll or apple), and the trailmix bagels are just amazing. I also find the atmosphere to be particularly warm and inviting, and this is definitely a place where I would extend my time as much as possible (we read over lunch and coffees, there was a school principal there doing some work, others on ipads etc). Highly recommend a visit for lunch or for a coffee and bagel (also some great looking special items which I simply didn't have time to try...)
