When asked why is the mac and cheese so f---ing good there's only one explanation. The mac and cheese from Panera is so very good because it isn't that healthy for you what so ever. It has a lot of calories to be honest Source
The souffles are way too good to only limit to breakfast. Why in the world aren't they made served all day long?! One Panera employee answered this burning question. "They take almost 4 total hours to make, from proofing the pastry crust to assembly to baking. Most stores can't afford to be baking them all day when the oven is needed to make bread, other pastries, etc" Source
You should probably know, there are definitely some things to avoid at Panera. "They aren't lying when they say that all their food is 100% clean so nothing is bad for you. However that doesn't mean that all the food is good for you. The Mac and cheese for example comes into the store premade and frozen in a bag and it is heated either in boiling water or the microwave if need be. Also avacados usually sit out open for a number of hours. They are fine around lunchtime but as the day goes on, they get older. I can say that those are the only two concerns"Source
Panera seems to bring out the crazies when it comes to people wanting their food. "Two things. The first is when we make a small mistake and they completely lose their minds. If we make a mistake of any kind, we'll do everything that we can to fix it and make it up to you, no need to cause a scene just because we forgot to give you a fork. The second is when customers come in 10 minutes before close and order a ton of food then eat in store" Source
