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.

Location: 850 Bridgeport Ave Shelton, CT 06484

Price: $$

Atmosphere: Shelton Panera Bread is small to medium sized but has separated area in the back and comfy couches.

Food: They had pizzas that were very pricy for the small size, when I went there back in 2007, but it was very delicious. Unfortunately, I don’t think they serve pizza anymore as it’s no longer on Panera Bread menus.

The free samples were very delicious. We also devoured the pastry pie, as you can see in the pic below, (which had separate “pie pieces” with cherry filling, cheesecake filling and apple filling and I devoured the Frozen Caramel (which I don’t think exists anymore, but Frozen Mocha is as delicious).

Service:  They serve you at your table, but no tip is required.

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.
