Panera Bread’s menu looks like a lot at first glance.
The chain boasts everything from soups to salads to sandwiches. And then there’s the bread, too.
A number of current and former employees have posted about their favorite orders on social media.
Business Insider also spoke with a number of current and former employees about their favorite menu options.
Here are their recommendations for your next Panera Bread run.
Panera Bread’s menu has a ton of options for everyone.
But, given that Panera Bread employees spend so much time preparing these meals, they’re natural experts in what’s worth buying at the casual dining chain.
Panera Bread employees also receive a discount of anywhere from 50% to 75% off meals up to $10, so many of them opt to eat at the restaurant while they’re on break.
Business Insider recently spoke to a number of current and former Panera Bread employees about their favorite meals. We also scoured the web to find more recommendations from employees on Quora and Reddit.
Here’s what the employees had to say:
The steak and arugula sandwich
One Panera Bread associate of one year told Business Insider that they prefer this meaty offering.
“It’s super unique and has so many flavors,” the employee told Business Insider, adding that they’d award the meal ten out of ten stars.
The squash soup
Associate Dorian Bach wrote in a 2016 Quora post that this particular option is the best soup in Panera Bread.
But, alas, fans of this autumnal-gourd-based dish will have to wait until fall to partake once more. It’s a seasonal item at Panera Bread.
The chipotle chicken avocado melt
A former Panera Bread associate trainer told Business Insider that they “used to always get the chipotle chicken avocado melt.”
