construction starting at Panera Bread a year after announcing their plans to occupy the location.
They made up for lost time, because the Panera Bread opened yesterday. There are two stories, with 52 seats on the first floor and 144 on the second.
Their hours will be as follows:
Monday - Thursday - 6:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.
Friday - 6:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m.
Sunday - 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.
We are always excited for a new lunch place in Penn Quarter. We suspect that despite the plethora of sandwich places in the neighborhood (e.g. ABP, Cafe Phillips, Camille's, Corner Baker, Cosi, etc.), Panera will do just fine.
The low is in the 30's over the weekend - go get some soup!
