At Panera Bread, expect to get some of the best soup you have ever tried, coupled with a great, an original salad (plenty of choices), and a gourmet sandwich. Like I said, there are plenty of choices in each group. They have a great 'two for' offering, which includes every item on the menu. Everything is served freshly prepared, unlike what you get in most of the fast food restaurants. Panera Bread is anything but a fast-food restaurant. Very comfortable seating is readily available. After dinner, walk up to the in-store bakery, and pick up a cup of coffee and one of their many dessert offerings, and some fresh bread for tomorrow's breakfast. This is my way to eat, and I enjoy every visit.
