Birmingham Welcomes Panera Bread

Panera Bread, best known for its artisan breads and scrumptious baked goods, will officially open its first bakery-cafe in downtown Birmingham at 100 Old N. Woodward on Tuesday, May 6 at 5:30 a.m. (check it out on WDIV during the morning!) To celebrate the opening of this new cafe, Panera teamed up with Children's Charities Coalition of Birmingham. Panera will host a benefit night for the coalition on Monday, May 5 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. It's not technically open to the public, but interested passer-bys will not be turned away! Panera will also donate 10 percent of sales to the coalition during the week of May 6-13, so your money will go to a great organization.

So be sure to stop on by the new Birmingham location! Oh, and don't forget to try one of Panera's new breakfast sandwiches! In all honesty (and not because it's my job to do this), the new b. sands (as I like to call them) are far better than any breakfast sandwiches I've tried in the past. And I have been known to love the Egg McMuffin! :)
