Panera Bread brings back two fan favorites – but there’s a ‘select markets’ catch

PANERA Bread is bringing two popular dishes back to its menu – but they won’t be available to everyone.

Fast food chains often offer menu options that are seasonal.

Such is the case with Panera Bread and its Lobster Roll and Lobster Mac and Cheese.

It’s back on the menu for the second summer in a row, as reported by chewing boom.

A year ago, lobster rolls and lobster mac and cheese were relaunched for the first time since 2019.

Although prices may vary by location, the two items cost $22.99 each.

They were put back on the menu for the first time on Thursday.

However, according to Chew Boom, the lobster roll and lobster mac-and-cheese will only be available in “select markets” for a limited time.

They can be ordered in Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.

The US Sun has reached out to Panera for comment.


Customers also need to keep an eye on other menu updates from the fast-food chain.

For example, Panera has brought back the strawberry and poppy seed salad.

It’s made with romaine lettuce, chicken, tangerines, strawberries, pineapple, and blueberries, and is covered in toasted pecan chunks and poppy seed dressing.

This item is a seasonal offer available during the spring and summer months.

It also launched a new product called Southwest Caesar Salad, which includes parmesan cheese, chipotle aioli, and organic blue corn.

In addition, Panera is introducing a new payment change.

Customers who link their MyPanera account to Amazon One can conveniently pay by hand.

Select bakery cafes in St. Louis will pilot the program and plan to expand to additional locations in the coming months.
