When I was in college, I spent 6 months working at a bagel bakery in Pittsburgh and from working there, if I never saw another everything bagel, I'd be pleased with life. The food was good but the hours were crazy. The person that had to make the bagels had to go in during the middle of the night to make sure everything was made for the next day. Cafés like that strive to make the customer happy. I've always loved Panera, probably, mainly because we didn't have one so going to an area that did made it like a field trip. Their food is always fresh and made in a timely manner. It's usually very clean as well.
So why do I love Panera? For a few reasons:
1.) They have the best cinnamon crunch bagels. (Not on the training menu)
2.) Their store and website have calorie contents beside their menu items.
3.) Their nutrion menus are easy to find.
I'm big into knowing what I'm eating so I love to know what's in the product. Panera makes sure to put it on their site for you.
With that being said, I went for dinner the other night with my sister and husband.
