Panera Bread’s Hidden Menu

Have you heard about Panera Bread’s hidden menu?  Word on the street (and on the Panera Bread website) is that there is a hidden menu that has several additional gluten-free menu items on it.  The menu isn’t labeled as a “gluten-free menu”, but as a “Power” menu.  Coincidentally all of the items on the menu are gluten-free. 


The menu offers both breakfast and lunch/dinner options.


Power Breakfast Egg White Bowl with Roasted Turkey

Power Breakfast Egg White Bowl with Steak


Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad

Power Mediterranean Roasted Turkey Salad

Power Chicken Hummus Bowl

Power Steak Lettuce Wraps

I haven’t been in to try the new Hidden Menu items yet, but plan to in the next week.  I received a gift card last month for my birthday to Panera, so now is a great time to use that!  In addition to the menu items on the Hidden Menu, Panera Bread also offers a wide variety of gluten-free menu choices.  I especially enjoy the Chai Tea Latte on a cold rainy or snowy day while catching up on my blogging. 

Panera Bread has locations across the US.  As with any restaurant that is not 100% gluten-free, there is a risk of cross-contamination.  In order to lessen that risk, make sure to touch base with the manager-on-duty so that he or she can follow your order and ensure that proper procedures are followed.  I have had a lot of success dining at Panera Bread in the past and look forward to trying some of the new items!

Have you tried any of the Hidden Menu items?
