Panera bread is the quintessential yuppie gathering place. They persevere here for they acutely cater to the suntan crowd that call toting toys and what not to the beach as ""accessorizing"". You will never get a bad sandwich at Panera bread. But you will also never get a sandwich worth the premium price you pay for it either. They continuously tout their fresh produce and organic content as being quality like no other, but as far as what matters to me most, (that it taste real good) they are no better than any other place that leaves the freshness and organic content up to your own best guess. If you want a really great sandwich at a good price, try any of the other restaurants in the same area of Paneras. (Outback, Texas Roadhouse, Fridays) If on the other hand your aim is too look good and proper, and to convince your gal that you will never refer to a concert violinist as a ""fiddler"", than definitely venture to Paneras. Don't forget your wallet with time to waste. You will need it.
Pros: Clean......Fresh Sandwiches
Cons: Expensive, Crowded, Overrated
