Panera's is one of my favorite places for a nice lunch.
Fresh ingredients, made to order salads and sandwhiches, fast service and a nice atmosphere make for an enjoyable meal.
I like their "pick two" option as an affordable lunch. Choose two from: half a sandwhich, cup of soup, or half serving of salad.
They also have a great bakery selection. I like the Tomato Basil bread (they will slice it for you) and the French Toast bagels.
Ample parking, variety of seating options (booths, tables, chairs by the fireplace), quick service with a smile.
