    Ridiculous.
    $44 for that?! Insane!

    That's what I usually get without the drink. I stopped drinking soda AND every restaurant charges way too much for a fountain drink. My trusty water bottle...

    A side of Mac and Cheese and a small bag of cookies is almost $10, which is about what my Pick2 costs.

    Our local Panera has good quality and presentation. It is regionally franchised... so results may vary ;)

    I used to go there semi-frequently worth coworkers (so maybe 2009-10). I was excited that there was one just down the street for us in our temp home in CA, but the food was definitely less good than I remembered. I still ate there occasionally (because I am so lazy and having someone else make my sandwich is nice ), but it was a much more "meh" experience.

    I don't recall the prices being over the top. I usually got the pick 2.

    I don't know why I never thought of this. I am such a dolt at times!

    Agreed.

    They have gotten rid of a couple of my favorite sandwiches (asiago roast beef, original veggie ) and changed some of the others, but it's not bad. Our office provides Panera sandwiches and salads for us once a month or so. Still love the broccoli cheddar soup!!

    I like the creamy tomato soup and their salad always seems fresh. I'd rather eat Panera then other fast stuff.
    I liked he original St. Louis Bread Company veggie sandwich before it became Panera. I make that at home a lot.

    I used to love them. Their sandwiches are so not worth it. The only thing I ever get there is the spinach and artichoke soufflé for breakfast. But I have been low-carb for a good while so it's been a long time since I even had one of those.
