The menu is only available to those who know about it.
Panera Bread restaurant lovers now have an entirely new menu to enjoy. But there's a twist: You won’t see it advertised at any Panera location.

According to Panera’s website the menu was developed by Scott Davis, Panera Bread’s Chief Concept Officer. “Panera’s off-the-menu dishes offer nourishing options that make sticking to New Year’s resolutions simple.

Bread shop, library blend stories and cookies for kids.
Teddy Bears and the “Hokey Pokey” blended with coffee, cookies and muffins Tuesday morning to brew up a fun time for about 10 children and their moms at Panera Bread in Buffalo Grove.

Braving a light snow, youngsters from 2 to 6 years old were unbundled by their moms and sat on colored mats on the floor of the shop as Jacobs and …
