I eat a lot at Panera (soup and salad lunch) in the US.

Will I be able to find a similar type restaurant chain in Montreal, or will I need to grab a salad at a restaurant?

Any other recommendations for healthy lunches around Guy-Concordia would be welcomed.

Merci!

I looooove Panera, so I feel your pain after returning home to Montreal from living in the States for a decade.

Interestingly enough, Tim Horton's -- the coffee chain; you can find one on almost every block! -- has good soup (the mushroom is particularly yummy) and sandwiches. Give 'em a try.

Unfortunately, though, they don't have cream of broccoli (my favorite at Panera) in a bread bowl (or ANY bread bowls). Now I'm drooling for that.

It looks like I'll be near Crescent Street area, which has a lot of trendy looking cafes....I'm sure I can something there...

So no chains.... the US has several like Soup Plantation, Sweet Tomatoes. Ah well, c'est la vie.

There is no Panera in Montreal but you won't go hungry for good bread and pastries there!

I googled Panera. We don't have it, but there are lots of local places that service similar food, and probably better too. Van Houtte is a chain that has some similar foods.

There are a lot of places in every district of Montreal that you can get soup, salad, and sandwiches. I am sure that the offerings will be healthier and tastier than Panera. You will not want for good food of any kind in Montreal.

There are some Canadian chains that are similar to Panera:

Michael's Baguette
Richtree Markets
Aroma Espresso Bar
Cultures

However, I don't know if any of these are in Montreal. May be someone from Montreal can chime in?
