I wouldn't ordinarily list a place like "Panera" on a vegetarian food guide, but it is one of the better vegan options in our area. Many of the vegetarian soups (particularly those labeled "low-fat" and "vegetarian") are vegan. The employees are happy to show you a binder that they have which contains the ingredients of all of the soups if you have any doubts as to whether a soup contains dairy products.
Panera is also very good about customizing sandwiches and salads to be suitable for vegans. In many cases, you can order a salad or sandwich "without gorgonzola" or "without chicken" and wind up with a meal that is still very flavorful.
