Panera offers really good sandwiches, good bread with good fillings. I like their hot turkey sandwich. The soup, especially in a crusty bread bowl, is great. Their desserts are ok, but their breakfast breads (bagels, danish rings, danish, muffins, cinnamon rolls, etc) are fantastic. They offer good coffee and teas, and an assortment of salads and a few sides. You order at the counter and get seated with your drink, and they'll holler for you when its ready. Way too crowded on weekend afternoons. They do a really nice picnic box lunch, we take one every year to picnic with the pops and popcorn pops.
