Panera Bread is an American food chain of bakery-café fast food casual restaurants. Their freshly baked and served bread is the star of their menu. But for a person who is avoiding Gluten, it is not a good choice to dine as their bread is not gluten-free. As all of its main Entrees have bread as an ingredient, therefore it is impossible to order any of them. Still, there are some other items on the menu offered by Panera Bread that is Gluten-free. You must tell your server about your allergy so that they take special care in the preparation of your order to avoid cross-contamination.
