You'll find a lot of Branson restaurants to be high priced and the food to be "heavy". Sometimes you just need something "light" and easy on the pocket book. That's where Panera will come in. You can get a soup, a sandwich or just a bagel. You choose what you want on your sandwich, type of bread, everything. The food is flavorful and good. Many times they have samples of their different types of breads and dips. The pastries are terrific. I love their shortbread cookies. You can't go wrong with this restaurant.
