Fast-food chains’ off-menu items, like In-N-Out’s “animal-style” fries, aren’t so secret these days, and now neither is Panera Bread’s super-healthy hidden menu.

The health-conscious sandwich and soup chain announced this month its move to offer a hidden menu in all locations.* The menu first launched in New York City locations last November.

Even better: The six hidden menu items are designed to be health-conscious. The power breakfast egg bowl with steak, for example, clocks in at 230 calories and contains 20 grams of protein. The power chicken hummus bowl contains 33 grams of protein and 330 calories.

Read on for the rest of the hidden menu items, in order from lowest to highest calorie content.

Power Breakfast Egg White Bowl With Roasted Turkey: 190 calories
All-natural turkey with egg whites, baby spinach, roasted peppers, and basil pesto.

Power Steak Lettuce Wraps: 280 calories
Seared top sirloin, leaf lettuce, cucumbers, diced tomatoes, red onions, basil pesto, and lemon juice.

Power Mediterranean Roasted Turkey Salad: 320 calories
All-natural turkey, baby spinach, romaine, tomatoes, red onions, kalamata olives, lemon juice, and extra-virgin olive oil.

Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad: 360 calories
All-natural chicken, baby spinach, romaine, tomatoes, applewood-smoked bacon, diced eggs, lemon juice, and extra-virgin olive oil.

*Sorry, Canada, the hidden menu isn’t available yet.

  • The managers and some staff know about this but not all of the staff knows. Took at least 5 minutes to place my order because the clerk didn't know and couldn't find the correct computer screen. The chicken hummus salad was very 'meaty' and seemed healthy.

    Why is it "hidden" and not out on the menu boards?

  • Commentor

    They are only advertising it through social media. It is hidden because they are monitoring the effectiveness of social media marketing.

  • Panera is just amazingly non veg friendly. I'm always so surprised.
