One of my favorite morning breakfast sandwiches is without a doubt the Egg & Cheese Croissant from Panera Bread. There is no need for any meat on this beautiful sandwich. I have been stopping in the Panera on my morning drive down Cantrell for 10+ years. Located at Pleasant Ridge this location is where I am known the most.
I am greeted by wonderful smiles and laughter each morning. If these awesome folks won't jump start your morning out right, "then Houston you have a problem."
When I stopped in one morning last week to get my favorite croissant, I got a surprise. I jumped about ten feet. It seems that the General Manager saw me coming and decided to give me a pre-Halloween scare.
Meet Travis Moser
This photo says it all. Travis has been with Panera for over ten years. I think he has rotated throughout the Little Rock/North Little Rock area a few times. He is fun and brings me lots of laughter.
I met Travis when I had to show him how to make the best sweet tea. That is, when Panera use to make sweet tea. I have no idea why they decided to drop good 'ole southern sweet tea. I use to make sure that it is stirred and the sugar didn't settle to the bottom. Also, it is important to wash out that large container so that it doesn't become sour. The tea needs to be switched out every couple of hours so that it remains fresh at all times. Maybe that is why they decided to bring in those "froo froo" teas and drop the sweet tea. I forgave them and still stop in to get my egg and cheese croissant. Be sure and grab one of those delicious pastries shown for only .99 cents with a purchase of a meal.
