Panera Bread Catering

Do you have an event coming up that you need catered? We just had an event at our home and our bellies were beyond satisfied with what we ordered. Our guests were so excited to see the Panera Bread food they love on our dining room table. Our catering order included their favorite soups, salads and sandwiches and for dessert their delicious cookies.

Available at participating bakery-café locations throughout Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island. Panera Bread now offers a robust catering menu with a wide array of options perfect for events of any kind along with easy online-ordering and delivery right to your home, venue or office and a team of experts to help you plan your menu accordingly.

Look at this beautiful spread of food. Aren’t your bellies grumbling with excitement just looking at it? Because, I am hungry just writing about this amazing catering order and I might have to order Panera for dinner because it is one of our family favorites and then this Mom won’t have to cook, tonight. A win for all!

I was so excited to bring Panera home to my guests. Yes, I went to my local bakery-café in Lake Grove to pick up a large catering order (you can have it delivered but, I chose to pick it up) and it was such a delightful experience. Danielle who helped me was so courteous and made sure my order was ready for the time I chose. She was so sweet and even offered to help carry everything to the car which was super helpful with such a large order. EVERYTHING was packed perfectly, I mean perfectly. Nothing was missing from the order and when I took everything out of the catering bags I appreciated how organized everything was. The sandwiches were individually wrapped with labels. How awesome is that? No guessing what sandwich is which. 


The ordering process online was easy and you can customize it any way you like. When I began my order I clicked on the Popular Bundle icon and I was so excited to see such wonderful options for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. The Popular Catering Bundles have great offerings if you are having a larger catering event.

I highly recommend the Deluxe Assortment for your event.

Deluxe Assortment


When you click on the customize button you can see the different sandwiches and salads offered in this awesome assortment. It even includes chips, the French Baguette and cookies.



When I ordered the sandwiches they all had the same type of bread which was sourdough. The reason it was the same was because, I did not customize the bread on the sandwiches. You don’t want to miss this customization if you love the sandwiches the way they are at your local bakery-café. 

The sandwiches were the fresh and delicious sandwiches you know and love at any Panera Bread location with all the same ingredients.  In our order we had the Steak & Arugula Sandwich, Bacon Turkey Bravo®, Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich, Heritage Ham & Swiss Sandwich and Roasted Turkey & Avocado BLT.

I am a HUGE fan of the salads at Panera Bread. One of our favorite salad dressings is the Poppyseed dressing that comes on the Strawberry Poppyseed & Chicken Salad. We knew it was the best salad choice for our event because of the kids. We knew they would love it because of all the fruit and the grilled chicken within the salad. It is one of our favorite salads and we highly recommend it.

The other salads offered that we love are: Summer Strawberry Caprese, Southwest Chile Lime Ranch Salad with Chicken, and the Fuji Apple Salad with Chicken. See all the salads offered —> HERE



Can you even choose a favorite soup? I know I can’t. We love them all. We were so excited to see that the soups come in such a large size. There is no catering order to big or too small for you to place an order for. Imagine a night where you can just head over to your local Panera Bread and get a loaf (or two) of the French baguette along with a couple of your favorite soups. That sounds like an awesome dinner to me. See the soups offered –> HERE

Check out the SWEETS selections under the dessert menu. They have brownies, a pastry ring, mini scones and a Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake.

WE LOVE PANERA COOKIES! You will not be able to resist the delicious assortment they offer.

We love and suggest the Candy Cookie, Chocolate Chipper Cookie and Oatmeal Raisin with Berries Cookie. These are our favorites. Who doesn’t love a delicious cookie for dessert?



Any cookie fan will be very satisfied with the cookie selection! We had to make sure my little cookie monster did not eat all of the cookies before our guests could choose a cookie or two.



Cold Drink Totes

One of our favorite drinks is the Passion Papaya Green Tea. Whenever we go to Panera Bread we always order it and when I saw it was a catering add-on option I could not resist adding it to our catering order. Our guests were so excited when they saw it because it is not only our favorite drink but, apparently it is a top favorite for a lot of people. Do you love it? We suggest adding two half gallon containers or four like we did to your order! Other cold flavor drinks that are available include: Plum Ginger Hibiscus Iced Tea, Blood Orange Lemonade, Prickly Pear Hibiscus Fresca, Agave Lemonade, Unsweetened Ice Tea and Orange Juice. So many choices and you will be happy with any of the drinks you choose. 

Our event was delicious thanks to Panera Bread!

Everyone’s bellies were full and they enjoyed every bite. We will ABSOLUTLEY be ordering from our local Panera, again. 

I had the Roasted Turkey & Avocado BLT with some Summer Corn Chowder Soup with kettle chips on the side. And of course, a glass of the Passion Papaya Green Tea. YUMMY!!!
