review recommendation
Newington, CT Panera Bread
Panera Bread is one of my favorite coffee shops that started off small and a few local areas here and there, and now is booming. They were the 1st around with free wifi. Yes, Panera Bread a chain now, but each Panera Bread has its difference in food taste and atmosphere, so I'm reviewing each location separately as I visit each one. Reviews below will be short and sweet because you'll get the drift. I'm not vegetarian or vegan, but there are many options for vegetarians because there are tons of bread, cheese and dairy. However for vegans, there aren't too many. Bagels are good, black bean soup and various breads without anything in it. If you ask for a smoothie without dairy, they'll make it for you.

Atmosphere: Newington Panera Bread is very large and one of the best places to have really large meetings, especially in the back. They allow reservation for the back area. There’s an entrance in the back as well. However, there doesn’t seem to be enough electrical sockets to plug in when you’re sitting in seats and sofas in the middle, like the Panera Bread in waterbury. I’m not sure if the plugs are hidden.

Food: I’ve had their Black Cherry smoothie, pastry pie (with the Apple, Cheesecake and Cherry filling), Asiago Bread, which was delicious. One time they gave out the rest of their pastry pies. It was awesome.

Check out the rest of the reviews, and like My Goal in Life is to Hit Every Panera Bread in the World Sometimes we will meet, (I’ll post events when we get enough likes).

In addition, I signed up for the free MyPanera card (which is like a shopping card) and keep getting free food and drinks!  I’ve had several beverages, bagels and pastries for free without minimal purchases, just random.  You do get a gift for your birthday each year.
