Panera Bread opened a new bakery-cafe in Glendale this week, its third in Queens.
Panera’s newest store is located at 73-25 Woodhaven Blvd., just south of Metropolitan Avenue. Its other two stores are in Long Island City and Little Neck.
Panera prides itself on providing “a friendly welcoming feel and a coffehouse atmosphere,” while serving up far more than just bread — everything from breakfast souffles and salads to sandwiches and soup. The many varieties of bread are cooked in a stone hearth.
There’s never any trans fat at Panera, and there’s always free high-speed Internet access.
