I'm really starting to like this place. \r
It always smells so damn good in there. The fresh baked bread, bagels, cookies, cinnamon rolls, and scones just wakes up my sense of smell every time I walk in the door. If you follow my reviews you should now that I'm a visual guy all the way. So, I just love staring/drooling at the glass case of goodies that are displayed inside (see pic). This case is right next to where you order and I always fight the urge to say, "I'll take one of those and one of those and two them and five of them.... " the horror...LOL. \r
Today I got the jalapeno and cheddar bagel with ham and swiss. I watched as they placed the sandwich on a panine maker and toasted my bagel to perfection. The bagel was nice and chewy on the inside with a good crunch on the outside. The flavor of cheddar, the saltiness of the ham and a little zing of the jalapeno was perfect. None of the flavors were overpowering. \r
I have to disagree with Nicole T. Every time I have been there the place is pretty clean. Also the staff is very pleasant and wide awake. They were so friendly that they assisted me with signing up for a rewards card on a computer they have by the cash register. Which, by the way is a good deal, they swiped my rewards card and I was eligible to get a free espresso or smoothie until March.\r
Ok what have we learned today, Dan is starting to fall in love with Panera Bread, I'm due some free $hit, and I reminded everyone that I'm a visual guy:) Remember to tell them Dan sent you and Stay Hungry!
