I like Panera Bread Company. I visit the North Waltham site frequently. Their food is healthier than the MacDonalds next door. We should have more restaurants in the west end of town.

Do we need two? Waltham has a nice piece of land up there and they want to put in another Panera Bread Store.!. Every where you turn is a fast food resturant or eatery. A drive-thur! Pretty soon it will be not nessasary to leave our houses or cars to live!
