Yuh-Mee! The bread here is so good – crusty on the outside and soft on the inside! I’ve also never had a soup I didn’t like and all their soups come with your choice of a side – I always get the French baguette, but I know you can get chips and a couple other things that I don’t remember.
I just had lunch there on Tuesday and had the soup and sandwich combo – the chicken and wild rice soup (with French baguette, of course) and the turkey artichoke panini. The panini was *so* good! As starving as I was, I left some soup (I hate leaving food) because it was just too much food. The prices are a little high, in my opinion, but once in awhile it’s totally worth it.
I don’t use this service because I don’t have a laptop, but they also have free WiFi access. I seriously think there’s one guy that parks himself by the window everyday and conducts business from Panera. I saw him on Tuesday and the last time I was there, which was a few weeks ago, I saw him in the same spot.
If you don’t want lunch or dinner, but need a little snack, they also have a bakery up front. I’ve had the chocolate croissant before, but I must say I’ve had better elsewhere. My fiancé loves the Danishes and his nephew always orders a cinnamon bun (which are *huge* by the way).
