Dining Guide for Families in Orange County

Creating Family Memories at Panera Bread

Giveaway sponsored by Panera Bread

To most, Panera Bread, is just another bakery chain in Orange County but to our family it is a place where we have created many special memories together.


One of our favorite things to do as a family is enjoy the outdoors. We are hardly ever home sitting in front of a television or playing videos – we are almost always outside enjoying the beautiful nature that surrounds our community. Since we spend so much time at our local parks and beaches, we will often pick-up a picnic lunch or dinner to bring with us, and Panera Bread has always been our go-to place for our picnic lunches.


We have filled our picnic basket with Panera Bread’s fresh sandwiches, salads, and bakery goods more times than I can count. While we all have our favorite sandwich to order, we always enjoy trying a different treat every time we order food.


The Fontina grilled cheese sandwich with Vermont white cheddar cheese is my youngest son Tyler’s favorite sandwich at Panera Bread. It comes with a reduced-fat chive and onion cream cheese spread and an Italian four cheese blend all melted on a thick piece of french white bread.


My favorite sandwich is their all-natural roasted turkey, bacon and avocado BLT. It is large enough for me to share with my daughter, Ella, and the turkey is always juicy and tender inside of freshly baked sourdough bread.

When planning a family picnic at the park, Panera Bread is the perfect place to fill-up your picnic basket with fresh and delicious sandwiches.
