It's hard not to like Panera Bread, their fresh breads, yummy soup bowls and healthy substitutes make this a great place to eat. The service is "eh" most of the time, but the food is sublime.
We usually visit on Sundays after church and the place is packed. They have a large seating area, but Panera's pretty popular. I love the brocolli and cheese bread bowl. It's enough to keep me satisfied for awhile.
If you want you can get an apple instead of chips and milk instead of soda - so it's a nice change from the normal out to eat meal.
