Thursday Thirteen #68: Things I love about Panera

Thirteen Things I love about Panera

1. I get a ton of work done there.

2. My kids are not bugging me.

3. I love their tea. Republic of tea is wonderful!

4. Free WiFi. (Take that, Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, and Borders!)

5. Their food is really good.

6. They use good for you ingredients.

7. I like the music... nice, soft, classical. Perfect to write to.

8. I can't do anything other than write, so things like my messy house and laundry piles don't bother me.

9. I'm not tempted to snack so much, because if I want to eat more, I have to buy more.

10. Their cups of tea cost less than at other places (by 50 cents, but when you go often, it adds up!)

11. It's a comfortable environment... nice seating, good lighting.

12. There's a fun mixture of people to people watch.

13. I go every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning when the little one is in school, and any other chance I get.

I'm a full-time telecommuter who has been going nuts trapped in the house. I've been thinking of other places I could work from, so your list of why you like Panera was helpful, thanks!

I've never been to a Panera. I suspect they don't have them in Utah, but I'll be on the lookout. It sounds like the perfect place to relax and I love tea.

Happy TT!

I have never been in one but we take out sandwiches from there all the time and sometimes breakfast. Yuuumy! People watching ability is always an important component and a favorite pastime. We don't drink much tea but come find out a list of some other beverages we enjoy...

I was just at ours on Tuesday night for a Bookcrossing MeetUp. That panini killed my mouth, though!

I went with boring this week

I do the same thing, for the same reason; writing and I have my favorite places. Only I do it five mornings a week. :)
