Great Soup and Sandwhiches!

Panera is a great place to go for great sandwhiches and soup among other things. The sandwhiches are well made, nice portions and tastes great. The bread is phenomenal! My favorite soup is the broccoli and cheese. Hmm Hmm good! Prices are reasonable, customer service is great and the atmosphere is cozy and friendly especially if you can snag a seat near the fireplace. Not to mention free wireless if you need to get online. Also, if you are in the mood for a pastry..this is the place to find it. Just great food all the way around. You won't be dissapointed!
