Almost like being back in Indiana

paneraWe took advantage of an invitation last night to attend the soft opening of the new Panera Bread bistro on Stadium Boulevard.

We first encountered Panera in Carmel, Ind., several years ago and were absolutely giddy when we learned the St. Louis-based chain was coming to Jonesboro.

I had my favorite – the Asiago Roast Beef sandwich – and it was almost like being back home again in Indiana.

Asiago Roast Beef - Oven-roasted beef, smoked cheddar, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions & creamy horseradish sauce, on our Asiago Cheese Demi.

Some of our Arkansas friends seemed a bit puzzled by the fare, but I expect they’ll warm up to it.

Panera has free Wifi and once things settle down after the official grand opening tomorrow, I may make it my official morning coffee and Internet stop. It’s more like home to me than Seattle Grind.
