Panera Bread is a good place if you want a soupl and sandwich. There are no wait staff so its more like a fast food place. However, the food is good and you can go healthy. I love the coffee and there is a bit of an atmosphere. The service is fast, the only negative thing is that its always- ALWAYS- crowded.

This is a nice place to visit, eat etc. but their food (meals) are kind of high priced. They have wireless internet for customers, and seating is just ok.

The healthy menu offerings are very tasty. It is great to have their restaurant so convenient. The menu items are affordable and made fresh. The personnel are friendly and keep the place clean and tidy.

Having written about my wife's favorite restaurant in Vienna, West Virginia, I decided to gush a little about my own--Panera Bread, just in front of Grand Central Mall. I couldn't possibly recount the number of times I've eaten there (usually for breakfast). I'm inordinately fond of the "Power Breakfast Sandwich" from the days when I pretended to be on a diet. It's a couple thin slices of deli ham, Swiss cheese, and a hard-fried egg, grilled on their trademark Ciabatta bread. I usually can't resist one of their gigantic cinnamon rolls and a cobblestone muffin as well (Calories? What calories?). That usually socks me for well over $11.

There are four flavors of coffee in self-serve pump thermos jugs. They had a dark roast, a medium roast, decaffeinated, and my favorite, hazelnut, all made freshly every half-hour or so. There's a microwave for warming your pastries. Newspapers are usually sold out.

The ambience is slightly European, probably Italian, given the name of the place; but it might just as easily be considered French. You order at the register so the service is always quick and effortless (unless there's a line).. They encourage you to bus your own table after eating, and most people do; but no one's "gonna yell at ya if ya don't." (a little West Virginian seeping to the surface.) They also have a frequent visitor card program allowing for free items after accumulating a certain number of points.

Although Panera would probably be considered a breakfast place similar to Tim Horton's (though more expensive, I like it better), lunch is quite a treat as well. However, I don't think I've had lunch there more than once or twice. The breakfast menu, in addition to the incredible variety of fresh pastries (English scones, French croissants, Italian everything else) includes one or two different quiches, and at least a half-dozen eggy sandwiches. It's a nice, relaxing place to eat, read the newspaper, or enjoy the free Wi-Fi, maybe even get some work done. Laptops are as evident as printed material...all this next to a comforting fireplace. Who could ask for more?

Panera has some delightful sandwiches and soups as well as the fantastic baked goods and specialty coffees. If you've not been in, or not in a while, I recommend you check it out!
