Panera Bread is an awesome place to eat when on your lunch break, and I am so happy we have one in Adrian. It is one of the places I go when I am running low on time but need something good to eat.

This past visit, I had a good experience yet again. I waited just over 10 minutes in total during my visit.   

During this visit, I ordered a cup of chicken noodle soup and a toasted asiago bagel with cream cheese. The person I was eating lunch with ordered a bowl of the broccoli cheddar soup, as well as the same bagel I ordered. 

Anytime you order a soup, you get a French baguette with it. I love the French baguettes. Everything tasted wonderful, although I am not sure my bagel was toasted as it did not appear toasted, and it was not warm. Other than that, things were great! 

The employee who took my order was sweet. She did not rush me when I was deciding what I wanted to order, and I appreciated that. When I pulled up to the window, the employees I could see were all wearing their masks.  

The final thing I would like to discuss is the price. Panera Bread, I would say, is known for being quite expensive. For two bagels, cream cheese, and the two soups, the total came to $17.77. That isn’t too bad, but the soups are the expensive items. The bagels cost just under $2, while each individual soup was between $5 and $7. 

Overall, I had a good experience at the Panera Bread drive-thru. I didn’t have to wait too long, the employees were friendly, and the food was good. I will be returning for lunch in the near future.
