      ..........The Community Room has been cold every time we have
      held an event there. We therefore strongly suggest bringing a

      an oven.)

      DIRECTIONS

      Panera Bread
      Ramsey Square Mall
      1300 Route 17 North
      Ramsey, New Jersey 07446
      (201) 236 - 6300

      Panera Bread is in the Ramsey Square Mall on Route 17 North between the Franklin Turnpike and the Spring Street exits. Panera is a standalone building at the south end of the mall. Its closest neighbor is Staples. The mall's largest store is Kohls.

      The entrance to the mall is not particularly obvious. Turn into the first driveway after Kentucky Fried Chicken.

      Note that we are often (but not always) in the Community Room. This room has in the past been quite chilly. We recommend bringing a sweater or jacket.
