Panera Bread's Gluten Free Menu

Being someone who makes much of his living from home on the internet, I’ve always found that going out and working in public can be satisfying at times.   In order to do this, I simply need my laptop and a wireless internet connection (wi-fi).

Probably my favorite place to “work” while out in public has to be Panera Bread.  They offer a very relaxing atmosphere, and they have a number of great gluten free items on their menu, making for an affordable and productive work environment.

While researching what Panera menu items are gluten free, I was able to confirm the following should be okay to consume (though I still recommend making sure they are aware of your dietary needs to avoid cross-contamination!):

      Went there today and not only did I feel like I looked at like I had 6 heads but there was hair in my salad and they acted like it was no big deal. Then I had someone ask the assistant mgr why she needed to change her gloves but when she told her it was bc I had an allergy she said with attitude “what kind of allergy?!” Thoroughly unimpressed and never going back unless I have to and in that case I won’t be eating. Only ended up eating a cup of tomato soup with no croutons and have been miserably uncomfortable since!

    Do any of Panera Bread’s meat products have gluten in them? If I asked for a Turkey/Bacon/Lettuce/Tomato without the bread would I be consuming gluten? Or ham sandwich – chicken sandwich – chicken salad, etc.?
