Panera Bread's food is always good, but there is so much traffic in the store, it has become TOO pedestrian.
One begins to feel they are in an upscale McDonald's -- and in point of fact, there is a McDonald's nearby
with a fireplace that has a warmer ambience.
Their Mayfair restaurant remains nicer, however the Chicagoland restaurants are looking too worn, too.
But if one wants something nutritious and handy, this is still one of the easiest choices.
Panera Rocks for great food and WiFi.
Even though they are pretty quick at making your food, I would never call Panera "Fast food". Their bagels are super yummy, but their sandwiches and soups are even better.
Whenever I have a business meeting, I always suggest we meet at Panera. I love the WiFi access! I can enjoy real food and get some work done at the same time.
The staff have always been very friendly and accommodating with me. I appreciate the great customer service.
Please bring back the Salmon sandwich
