Have you even lived if you haven’t devoured a Panera bagel? Toasted and with a gob of cream cheese makes this experience complete.

Panera always releases new seasonal salads to switch up their permanent menu, but we ranked their classic, the ones that never let us down. These calorie counts are based on each entire salad’s contents, but Panera also offers half portions.

Caesar Salad: 290 calories

Greek Salad: 400 calories

Spicy Thai Salad with Chicken: 510 calories

Nothing accompanies the classic Panera French Baguette better than hot soup. These calorie counts are based on a bowl-size portion of each soup, but you can also cup-size option. Nothing is better than eating your soup of choice out of a bread bowl, however, every bread bowl adds a whopping 660 calories to your meal.

No Panera meal would be complete without a classic side. Apples are, not surprisingly, the healthiest option, but it’s very hard to say no to a delicious French Baguette or bag of chips.
