We ate lunch at Panera Bread in Oldsmar today. I never go to this location because their parking lot is horrible and always full. We missed the lunch crowd, so were able to get in & out fairly quickly.
Loren ordered a cup of clam chowder with half of a smokey turkey club.
He was less than impressed to say the least. He liked the chowder, but his panini was just a train wreck. The bottom side wasn’t grilled at all because half of the turkey was outside of the sandwich. Definitely some poor quality control going on here.
I went for the chicken salad on ciabatta bread & a side of mac & cheese.
I was pretty impressed with the mac & cheese. It was very creamy & had a nice unique flavor to it. I’m hard to please with mac & cheese but this one ranks as one of my favorites now. The chicken salad sandwich was pretty good. Way more than I could eat in one sitting, so it was lunch the next day too. Total bill with two drinks was $25.
