I moved away from the Bay Area 7 years ago, but on a recent visit had a light meal at Panera Bread. I had the 1/2 sandwich and soup. Both were very good, but I must agree with some other reviewers that the prices are a bit high for the area. However it's nice to know some more upscale places are popping up in the Hayward area to provide more choices.

The bread was fresh and soup (tomato) was delicious. It actually could have used a little more salt and I was tempted to add some. But I decided to eat it without the additional salt and really just enjoy the tomato flavor. Glad I did.

Also bought a pastry to go. It was something with pecans, and was very good with my coffee the next morning!

The sandwiches were fresh and the service was good. Most of their restaurants are top notch and not expensive.

Aside from spilling hibiscus tea and lemonade (booji Arnold Palmer) all over the drink area, the restaurant was great and so were the people.

Not many chances to speak to VCs and when you do, make sure that you're not ordering a drink and talking business at the same time. Could be considered hazardous to your business health. (smile) Other than that excellent food and service.

What can I say, the food here is great. But.. Gosh darn these guys are expensive. If they were to ever bring their prices down out of the clouds, I would gladly to visit way more often.

Yess their breads, pastries, scones, swirls, bagles, tarts, coffee and cakes are delecious, but don't be surprised to pay $10 bucks for a sweet and a cup of joe. This place will definitely make your butt bigger while making your wallet smaller! Enjoy in moderation.
