review recommendation
Panera Bread West Hartford Salmon Salad and Icy Caramel Mocha
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: 950 Wolcott St Waterbury, CT 06705

Price: $$

Atmosphere:  Waterbury’s Panera Bread is decent sized and not crowded.  Plenty of plugs, including ones that are built into the booth seatings in the center of the place.  There is a patio with tables outside as well.

Food: I usually get the Frozen Mocha or Caramel which was good. I got a big salmon salad back in 2007 or 2008, which had a chunk of salmon on top of seasoned lettuce and veggies and it was very delicious. But I don”t think that they serve salmon salad anymore.  Either way, it shows they knew how to handle meat and seafood.

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.
