I am a big fan of Panera bread.I remember the first time I visited Panera. The first thing I noticed was the pleasant atmosphere. A place to sit back, relax and enjoy a cup of coffee or pastry.I love the cozy atmosphere of the fireplace and the free Wi-Fi. I noticed several people enjoying their meals and using there laptops.
This weeks visit was made at lunch time with my friend Christa. This is soup weather and I love Panera’s Baked Potato Soup and Broccoli Cheddar. It was hard deciding which one to order because they are both delicious. I usually pair my soup with a sandwich. My favorite is the Bacon Turkey Bravo.So I decided to order the Broccoli Cheddar Soup with my sandwich. Christa ordered the Sierra Turkey with Baked Potato Soup which is called Take Two on the menu.
Breads and Pastries
To take home I ordered the Cinnamon Raisin Bread. I love this bread. Panera has so many breads to choose from. I like to toast my raisin bread in the morning with a little butter. So yummy! I counted 17 different breads on the menu. My favorite is Three Cheese, Asiago Cheese and of course Cinnamon Raisin. Last week i was visiting Panera and the Apple Cherry Pastry Ring caught my eye. I just had to bring this home. Its great with a cup of coffee.With all the variety of delicious pastries, bagels,muffins and cookies it took some time deciding on each visit what to bring home.
Enjoy Panera’s Signature Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches or Ciabatta Breakfast Sandwiches to start your day. The Whole Grain Breakfast Power Sandwich is new on the menu as of 1/12.Made with all natural eggs, Vermont white cheddar, and smoked lean ham. Tempting? You bet it is!
I love the Grilled Chicken Caesar when I am in a hurry and eating light.Starting 1/12 Panera is adding the Thai Chopped Chicken Salad to the menu. I cannot wait to give it a try.
Choose Panera to cater your next event.What a great way to please a crowd. Online ordering is available in some locations.
