National bakery chain Panera Bread is experimenting with pay-what-you-can bakeries. That's right: You can walk in and pay full fare, partial fare, or nothing at all for, say, a soup and sandwich. So far, the setup has proved profitable. The Panera Cares eateries will let you volunteer in exchange for a meal, if you wish — or you can simply eat for free.
