    I’m the salad you’ve been waiting for all year. The salad you think of when you’re eating other salads. I’m back for the summer. The Strawberry Poppyseed & Chicken Salad.The taste you just can’t quit.

    Be kind to your co-workers & surprise them with a bagel pack (13 assorted bagels with 2 cream cheese flavors) so no one will get hangry in the morning! ... Yes, "hangry" = angry due to being hungry.

    Avoid #PaneraBread at 501 Wilshire in #SantaMonica at all costs!! From horrible #CustomerService, to burnt bagels and the location being an absolute filthy dump, this is a restaurant to avoid! #Panera

    This place is going downhill. The food presentation is horrible. Just sent my food back. The sandwich was soggy and the soup was cold. Lucky me.

    2 hours on your laptop eating nothing but a bowl of soup while I search in vain for an open table? You're the reason why I hate Panera.
