Panera Bread Restaurant Review

: Panera Bread is a modern neighborhood café and bakery. With free wireless internet, fresh-baked breads and contemporary comfort food, it’s a good place to eat and hang out for a while. At breakfast, grab a cup of coffee and try the breakfast sandwiches or egg soufflés. Or, pick up a baked-that-day breakfast pastry. Lunch and dinner is time for one of six soups of the day, classic American or hot panini sandwiches with all-natural ingredients and European-style cheeses. When you need an afternoon snack, try the scones, brownies or cookies to go along with fresh-brewed green tea. The breads, pastries and muffins may not be as good as a true European boulangerie, but they are certainly more fresh and flavorful than those at your typical grocery store.
