Last year, Panera Bread tested a Double Bread Bowl that had folks buzzing with excitement. Featuring an oblong sourdough loaf with two “bowls” in the middle, it gave people the ability to get double the soup or pasta with the same amount of bread.
Panera is now ready to unleash that concept to the rest of the country with a nationwide launch of the Double Bread Bowl.

Like last time, you can get any combination of Panera’s soups or pastas, including mac & cheese, inside of either of the bowls. Panera has also added some new items to their menu since the test last August, including custom-built mac & cheeses that will also be available options to further personalize your double offering.
There is one caveat to this, however, as those that order online will only get to choose from a lineup of five different soup pairings. They are as follows:
- Chicken Noodle and Broccoli Cheddar
- Creamy Tomato and Broccoli Cheddar
- Broccoli Cheddar and Broccoli Cheddar
- Bistro French Onion and Broccoli Cheddar
- Ten Vegetable and Creamy Tomato
If you want to customize beyond this, such as piling on the mac & cheese, you’ll have to get the Double Bread Bowls in-store.
Panera’s bread bowl will be available from February 14th to February 28th at participating restaurants nationwide starting at $9.99 each.
