Panera bread is a great place to get some coffee and a pastry with a friend and chat for hours. it's also a nice place to come get an iced drink with your laptop because there's free internet! it's also a great place to get lunch because their sandwiches, soups, and salads are really yummy. they have pick two, where you can pick half a sandwich and pair it with a soup or salad, or pick a soup with salad. either way, it's like less than $6.50. their chicken is well marinated (not dry!) and their vegetables are crisp and fresh. oh, the best part is their bread - - they are a bread company, so expect the freshest bread.
