Have you been inside the new Panera Bread in Wall?

Located in the Acme shopping center parking lot off Rt. 35 South, the newest Panera Bread has very recently opened its doors. And it's got a drive thru and outdoor patio!

Right across the street from Whole Foods and just blocks from Spring Lake beach, the designers of the inside of this Panera did a good job making sure it fits the best of the upscale Jersey Shore area that it's moved into.

The other Panera Breads in our area are all on the darker side, dimly lit with darker wood inside. So I was very surprised when I opened the doors to see inside this one and everything was light and airy and, well, beachy.

This Panera Bread's atmosphere is really tastefully done. Just so pretty inside. It's more of a loft-like atmosphere with an open, white ceiling and some pretty artwork.

When I went in on Friday, they said their free wifi wasn't up and running yet, but the lines were being run and that it should be ready within a few days.
