Miami New Times's Description
Founded in 1981, Panera has helped redefine the concept of American bakery-cafes. Now more than 1,500 stores strong, Panera (which operates in Missouri as The St. Louis Bread Company) puts the emphasis on bread baked fresh at its local stores, and operates according to the motto, "A Loaf of Bread in Every Arm." Panera has worked its healthy-eating angle so well that a Health magazine study found the bakery to be "North America's healthiest fast-casual restaurant," and Zagat's has named it the best place for "healthy option" eating. Don't tell that to Miami fans of Panera's uber-popular Ham and Gruyere Sandwich or its bestselling Breakfast Power Sandwich, both made with just-laid eggs and, of course, wedged into bread baked on-site that day.
