Description: We are bakers of bread. We are fresh from the oven. We are a symbol of warmth and welcome. We are a simple pleasure, honest and genuine. We are a life story told over dinner. We are a long lunch with an old friend. We are your weekday morning ritual. We are the kindest gesture of neighbors. We are home. We are family. We are friends.

We enjoyed a lovely meal with friends. We thought we were ordering healthy choices by selecting salads.

It was only later when I got home that I found that my "healthy choice" was salt and calorie heavy.

Be sure to look up your selections before ordering. Some of the sandwiches contain over 1000 calories. Some of the salads are well over 600 calories.

was in town for a workshop and as able to drive to this panera eat a healthy but late lunch. Service was prompt and polite. Place was clean even though it was pretty full. Someone came to our table to clear our dishes.

Panera needs to bring back the soba noodle bowl with chicken! They also only had four soups ready today; none of which were gluten free.

As my heritage is German we love fresh bread. Panera is better than Publix or Wal-Mart but far from freshly baked good from a handmaking bakery.
