Panera Bread is the one chain restaurant we actually enjoy. My husband and I often stop there while we are traveling and we recently went to the one in Metairie while we were shopping in the area. We enjoy the salad, (Panera's is one of the few places that has a really good fat-free dressing and a salad with fruit.), sandwiches, and often the soup is very good. It's a great place for us because they always have outdoor seating and since we travel with a dog (golden retriever)
we can enjoy a meal and not have to sit in the car.
