look up any word, like hipster:
 
1.
A clean, upscale chain of restaurants primarily located on the eastern coast of America. They sell a variety of delicious, high-quality food from soups to sandwiches to desserts. Also featured are their fresh bread and healthy, low-carb options.

Contrary to what the other commenter stated, Panera is never out of stock when I go there.
The food place where yuppies stand on long lines and furiously press the buttons on their Motorola phones as they attempt to order a sandwich.

A place to get good food and drinks but expensive as fuck.Sure, the names are stupid and you hate pronouncing them, but good quality overall.
I can't believe I paid $9 for this bread at Panera Bread, but goddamn it's good.

An amazing place to eat and relax. The food has a great variety of soups, sandwiches, coffee, pastries, salads, etc. They also offer free wifi. It's also a great place to work and they pay pretty well
Customer: Instead of this bread can i get this one and instead of this soup can i get this one and can i substitue this whole thing for something completely different?
Me the cashier: yes of course.
cause at Panera we pretty much never go by the menu, you can pick any bread or soup or salad or pretty much any combination

Place with the best highest quality food around. Food is always fresh and delicious. Nice place to take your laptop and get a sandwich at lunch.
Every sandwich ive tried from Panera has been delicious.

A common misspelling of the band Pantera, where they just forgot the "t".
The founder of Panera most likely named his restaurant chain after this kickass band, but there was just a typo.

Every common white girl in the Ocean City, Maryland area's favorite place to eat.

1) 2nd worst employer, following OfficeMax. A bakery-cafe with incredible food on the menu, but never in stock. The location of the definition of fraudulent business ethics. Not where one wants to be caught during lunch rush on weekdays, or post-church rush on Sundays.
2) Hell on earth.
Fred: I just went to Panera for lunch.
Joe: Oh really? What did you order?
Fred: Well, I was going to order a sandwich but they ran out of bread and meat.
Joe: Typical.
