Panera Bread is looking to expand beyond the breakfast and lunch crowd. Best known for its bagels, pastries, and sandwiches, the restaurant chain will add10 new menu items.

Some heartier options like dinner bowls, flatbreads, sandwiches and seasonal sides for families on the go. The items will be sold from 4:30 pm until the restaurant closes.

The menu will debut first in Lexington, Kentucky, in July and in Providence, Rhode Island, in September. No word yet on national plans, but my taste buds are tingling!
