I am fond of eating outside in all types of restaurants to enjoy the food delicacies of all types. I have been able to locate some very good restaurants during my trials of various restaurants here in the USA. Panera Bread is my most recent find in the category of nice restaurants. I had a chance to visit Panera Bread restaurant, situated at 5110 Campbell boulevard, White Marsh at Baltimore having area zip code as 21236. Our family went for the morning breakfast at Panera on Saturday at around 11 am. The restaurant was completely full at that time and we had to wait for around 10 minutes to get our place. There was a queue for the ordering and it took around 10 minutes for us to place the order. All these were the indicators of the popularity of this chain of restaurants.
As soon as you enter Panera Bread, you will be amazed at the mouth watering varieties of the breads, bagels, and muffins placed on the display. All these displays doubled our appetite and we ended up ordering more than what we can eat. Panera Bread is the most ideal place for late morning breakfasts and lunch. You will be able to enjoy relaxed atmosphere with your intimate partners enjoying various types of bagels, sandwiches, soups, muffins, and cakes. The bread and coffee are the specialties here at Panera Bread. The coffee available here is of dark roasting style with intense flavor. The full menu of brewed and espresso coffee is available here. Can you imagine the varieties of breads available here? There are around 16 varieties of breads available here like country, French, sesame semolina, whole grain, white whole grain, stone milled rye, three cheese, three seeds, sourdough, focaccia, sunflower, honey wheat, lower carb pumpkin seed, tomato basil, and asiago cheese. Each variety is served with excellent cream cheese of your choice. The tasty dishes prepared from the eggs are also very popular here as a starter.
The soups are also available in around 8 varieties. Two varieties of vegetarian soups are also served here regularly. We preferred tomato based soup with cream and vegetables. The soup is served in a large bowl and can easily be enough for the two persons. You have an option of getting potato chips or the loaf of the bread free of cost with the order of soup. The total breakfast of soup, bread, bagel, and the muffin with fine hot espresso coffee can be the best here. The bagels are also available in many varieties and keep on changing so as to get new variety each time. I had ordered chocolate bagel that had a nice sweet taste along with the sweet cream cheese. The specially featured dark coffee El Conquistador is the best here along with the other equally nice varieties like Reserva Del Patron and La Flor del Café. The standard café blend and Colombian decaf are also available here everyday. Caffe Latte, the most popular morning coffee of Europe and America is also served here at Panera Bread. The lavish breakfast can end with the sweet muffins of many varieties. If you are not in a position to consume the whole of muffin, settle for the muffin top only that is equally delicious and tasty. At the end of such a lavish and lively breakfast, you shall surely feel like a king.
Panera Bread has one negative aspect as against number of positive aspects enlisted above and that is the price part. The prices of all the items are slightly higher and you may feel pinch about it. The signature bagels cost around $4 each, while the soup costs around $3. The muffins cost range from $4 to $6. The full breakfast of an individual can cost around $10 to $12 per head. However, if you would like to enjoy a real royal breakfast once in a while, Panera Bread is the best place.
