We eat at Panera a few times a month. DH always orders the You Pick 2: a Greek salad and 1/2 Italian combo. It is huge , tasty and worth the money. I, always thinking about calories, also got the You pick 2: ordered the new turkey with cranberry dressing and garlic cheese spread on a 1/2 pannini baguette and chicken noodle soup . The bill for this plus 1 diet sodaand 1 tap water was over $19. OK, I thought...at least it'll probably be good.
So out come the lunches and as usual, DH's sandwich is huge. I asked the guy if that was the turkey on baguette on my plate because all it looked like was a hunk of bread. He opened it, glanced inside and said "yeah, that's it".
OK...we walk to the table and I opened up the 1/2 pannini: inside is about 1 OUNCE of turkey, NO garlic cheese spread and a skimpy dab of cranberry. I went back and the guy politely made me another sandwich. I told him to actually put something in it . This sandwich was not worth $3 let alone over $8.
So finally I have given up ordering turkey in this place....they are either out of it for the day or the portion is VERY skimpy for the price. Pick another sandwich is my advice. Service was good, the place is as clean as any crowded place can be. But any turkey sandwich at Panera is a poor value.
