Like Panera Bread…

"Like Panera Bread" is the best way I can describe this place in only a few words. They have fresh baked breads, bagels, and other baked goods. You order in a line, then wait in another one for your food. You can get take out or to go. I ordered a Charleston Club I think it was called with some tasty turkey, bacon, tomato, and red pepper aoili on wheat bread. The bread was incredibly fresh, and it came with pretzels or chips. My meal was about $10, which is a little pricey for a sandwich and self-service! Hubby got a portabella panini with boursin and pesto (unfortunately the pesto overwhelmed the boursin flavor). I would probably go back but I couldn't find anything about the place that really stood out to make it better than a Panera or Einstein.
