Paul: Hello, guys! It’s been a while since our last review. (Six months!) Today, we are reviewing the the Panera Bread in Smyrna. We’ve been here about two or three times in the last few weeks, so this will be an overall review.
Two things that I enjoyed most were their Mac and Cheese and their Creamy Tomato Soup. They were really good. The Creamy Tomato Soup was really rich and creamy. It was very tasty. The Mac and Cheese was amazing. It had a tons of cheese and the pasta was tender.
The service was just OK. The first time we went, the guy who took our order didn’t seem to care about anything. But, we got the same guy the next time and he was a lot nicer. (Sam said that he "stepped it up".)
The decor was really nice. The first time we went, it wasn’t all that clean. But, the second time it was very clean. A shout-out to all you people who like booths: They have plenty of them!
It is a great alternative to Atlanta Bread.
Sam: I got the Turkey Chili Bread Bowl. It was good. Inside of it was red peppers, black beans, turkey, corn, and other stuff. It was spicy. The bread bowl was good.
You should see how big their cookies are! The chocolate chip, short bread, and vanilla cookies were like this big. (I am making a big circle with my hands.) I didn’t want to split the cookie with my brother, but my dad made me.
Sam’s Patented Bathroom Review: The bathroom had fancy lights. The second and third time I was there, it was clean.
