Okay, so there's now a Panera Bread open in Fremont, right around the corner from my house. It's probably a 10 minute walk away. I'd visited a Panera once before, while I was visiting my friends in the Chicagoland area. I thought it was pretty neat.
Sunday I went to the new Panera with my wife and my bro for some lunch, and I was duly impressed. They have all manner of breads there, quality deli stuff, good bakery stuff, and free wifi. That is perhaps the biggest attraction. They have some big comfy chairs, and even a little fireplace. I think I may be frequenting this establishment from now on when I need to get out of the house to work, but not into the office. Sorry, Bay St.
