Panera's fall menu items

Pumpkin spice takes a back seat on Panera Bread’s fall menu!

While pumpkin spice seems to be taking over restaurant menus everywhere, Panera Bread is highlighting a different spice this season – cinnamon! That’s right, pumpkin doesn’t have a starring role in Panera’s Fall 2019 menu.

The chain is just letting other fall flavors like apple, cinnamon, and squash take a turn in the menu spotlight! But not to worry, pumpkin lovers! 🎃 You’ll still find pumpkin spice in the seeds sprinkled on top of Panera’s vegetarian soup or see the shape in the chain’s frosted shortbread cookies.

We stopped into our local Panera Bread to try some items from the Fall 2019 menu, and we were pleased to see a mix of returning favorites alongside new choices for this year. Here’s a sampling of what we found:

Panera Autumn Squash Vegetarian Soup
Vegetarian Autumn Squash Soup
This hearty soup is a blend of butternut squash, pumpkin, and vegetable broth simmered with, honey, apple juice, cinnamon, and a hint of curry. Finished with sweet cream and topped with roasted and salted pumpkin seeds, this soup is served with a side of French baguette. Yum!

    The soup is delicious, but they got rid of French Onion for it and I am not happy. I can eat their French onion all year long. The squash is a nice change, but I’ll never want to eat it nearly as much as the French onion.

    I LOVE the autumn squash soup!!! I’m not a pumpkin fan so I’m super thrilled to have cinnamon be a star!!
