Food isn’t the only awesome thing about Panera Bread. Of course, the food is absolutely fantastic, but eating at the restaurant is half the fun.

 

The cafe/bakery is decorated in modern, earthy tones and artistically unique paintings. The toasty atmosphere makes it a great place for eating with the family, hanging with friends, or holding a study group meeting.

 

Instead of being seated at a table and serviced by a waiter like at a usual restaurant, you get in line and order food at the main counter. Then you are given a device that will buzz when your food is ready, and you get to choose your table.

 

The people behind the counter are extremely nice, and your food is made very quickly (even on crowded nights).

 

Not only that, what you can order is outstanding. There is a wide range of sandwiches, soups and salads. Some of these include a Cuban chicken panini, an asiago roast beef sandwich, French onion soup and a salmon caesar salad. The kid’s menu is great, and breakfast items, such as souffles, sandwiches and bagels, are available until 10:30 AM on weekdays and 11:00 AM on weekends.

 

Don’t forget to order a pastry for dessert, and enjoy the rich culinary experience that is Panera Bread.
