Panera Bread

is yummy!

I can't believe I haven't been there since so many have popped up in San Diego recently. There's 3 that I know of and I went to the one closest to my work with a friend of mine earlier today. I got the Salmon Club Croissant which from the menu is "Chilled salmon filet, Applewood-smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato and our zesty tomato aioli served on a freshly baked croissant" but without the tomatoes because I've never been a fan of the slimy texture. And it also came with a bag of chips! Overall, I enjoyed the experience... the food was delicious, the environment was very welcoming and the food was great for the price (esp. since I took my friend out and ended up paying) and I would definitely go again to try out more of the menu... I really want to try their soups in the bread bowl and salads because they sound just delectable!

I feel bad though, because since it was so quiet and everyone was just enjoying their meal, my friend and I were probably the loudest people and got the employees looking at us every couple of minutes because what we were talking about. HAH.

I also got a dessert to go which is the Macadamia Nut Blondie... the name sounded to good to resist because I'm such a sucker for anything with Macadamia! Haha.

Also, they had fresh pastries and bread for sale... like an actual loaf you can purchase and cut yourself! I thought that was so old fashioned and reminded me of those movies during the 20s (or Idk what decade) when they'd pop loaves of bread in the oven and serve it straight to the dinner table. YUM!

It's funny, because I usually have one favorite item from a restaurant I ALWAYS have to get, but from this place it seems like I'll like a lot of things which I like because I enjoy variety in my life ;) With that, I am extremely excited to go back and try more food and maybe their smoothies because they sound delish too! (PS. Why are drinks always more expensive than the damn meal!?)

If you've been to Panera before, what have you tried or wish to try? And what did you like or didn't like? I'd like to know your eperiences too :)
