I happen to be a fan of Panera Bread. I have eaten in quite a few, since they are often the best bet among unknown small eateries in unfamiliar locations, as well as being really enjoyable. They have improved their formerly weak-ish coffee, and their salads, soups, paninis and sandwiches are made with fresh ingredients and are almost always delicious. They serve little cheese pies for breakfast that are wonderful and deserts that are perfect to top off a good light meal. Some of their locations are newer and brighter than others, but all are well maintained and clean. The Rockville location is in a small shopping center in a somewhat undistinguished area, but the Panera offers a welcome sanctuary during a hectic rush hour in the morning or evening, or a delightful break for lunch.
