Let's start out by saying that I love Panera Bread. My problem is with current management. I have been to Panera Breads in New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, all over Long Island.

The breads are excellent and the food is good. Soups are tasty and the sandwiches are original and special. Love the broccoli and cheddar soup served in a bread bowl. And the cheese bread is to die for. Give them a try.

one of my favs for a quick bite for lunch. I ususally get the pick 2, which entitles you to pick 2 of a soup, 1/2 sandwich or wrap or salad. my favorite meal is the creamy tomato soup, along a chicken or cobb salad.

Panera is more than just the bakery is started out as. When I'm sick, this is my take out food of choice due to its clean and amazing soups salads and sandwiches. I actually recommend you try all their vegetarian items first. You won't be sorry.

My husband & I eat at Panera's frequently. We especially like that we can order portions that will meet our appetites. They offer a good size bowl of soup and a half sandwich, salads, sandwiches and baked goods.
