I love studying at panera, its somewhat quiet. Can always find a table. Seats are way more comfy than starbucks. Plenty of food options to choose from.
After work today, went to panera for some lunch and studying. Got a bowl of steak chili with cornbread on top with a side of baguette. After I paid, the cashier informed me I could get a free espresso drink or a smoothie. My reaction was “OH!” Followed by “why”. She mustve thought I was retarded… anyway I got a mocha and instantly regretted. Should have asked if I could saved the reward for another time when I really wanted coffee. The chili was good thought and I ate the outside crusty part of my baguette. Its always funny watching people eat their breads. Some dig the fluffy inside, some like the crust, some well some just like bread and eat everything.
I also wanted something sweet afterwards. A cookie didn’t seem enough, a cinnamon roll seemed too much, muffins too dense. A scone…. mmm…a scone seemed perfect. And it was! I’ve always loved panera’s scones, esp the blueberry which is what I got today. It was PERFECT today. A little toasty on the outside, so when u break it apart, its got that nice crunch but the inside was light and fluffy full of blueberries. It was sooo yummy. I’m still full at this moment.
