A few weeks ago, Panera Bread opened in Oxford Alabama in front of the Publix. Yes, I have heard of Panera Bread before but I have never tried them! So after I got a $5 bonus card from the Calhoun County Chamber, I decided to give them a try!
Panera Bread is what I like to call a healthy restaurant and bakery. Panera offers a variety of breads, muffins, bagels, and baked goods. But that’s not all! Panera also has a breakfast and a lunch/dinner menu and they offer sandwiches, soups, salads, paninis, pastas, and more! They basically have no fryers and everything is made fresh.
I got a smoked turkey breast sandwich on freshly baked country bread and it came with kettle potato chips. I also got a cinnamon crunch bagel and they even toasted it for me!
The sandwich was very good! The bread was fresh and good and I liked the turkey. The kettle potato chips were crunchy and good as well!
The cinnamon crunch bagel was just awesome! There was a lot of cinnamon on top of the bagel and the bagel tasted very good! I would definitely get another one!
Panera Bread also offers fruit smoothies, frozen drinks, coffee and tea, green tea, and an espresso bar. What I like about Panera Bread is they donate what they have not sold each night to local charities so it can be used instead of thrown away. They also will donate some of their sales at certain times to local non-profits! I encourage all of you to go to Panera Bread, you will like it!
