Panera Bread Iliff and Peoria Aurora CO

I've been back several times now to this bakery. Must say, I don't know where I got the review that I did previously. But I can say now that it is 'open' and apparently always has been. Great coffee, pastry, soups, sandwiches. A bit pricey but service is really good and food is very good... so... read more

Time to say good bye to Panera. Over priced food and service very poor. Every time I visit, I wounder why did I came in! Lunch for me and my two daughters, ages 12 and 10 cost over $35.00. For what? Two peanut butter sandwiches and a aziago roast beef. Also, any business that asks you to stop following the... More

Service was great. That's where it ends. I ordered chicken Alfredo, had Driven all night for a funeral, was HUNGRY, tired, and anything would have been good. Not sure how you screw up canned or frozen onion soup, but they did...SALTY. Chicken alfredo, Just as bad, if not worse, the "smoothies" I had mango I think, kid had strawberry, we... More

I used this Panera twice in one week to provide boxed lunches for 35 people in a training class. The selection of food was excellent and I heard no complaints, plus they were early with the delivery each day. If you need to provide food for a group, they will not let you down.

Ate breakfast there while visiting the area. Typical Panera's (we've eaten at several) around the country but the staff is very efficient and got our meals out in record time.

On two visits in last two weeks, the help could not get my order for 4 different bagels correct. In latest visit, I had to repeat my order 3 times. They seem in such a rush to get through you, that they're not paying attention. Frustrating as the line behind me grew to 8 people while the order was continually... More

Quiet; restful atmosphere. Seems to be a popular place for the locals to come to visit with friends; study; browse the internet and of course eat. We just had snacks (the shortbread cookies are killer) but the soups look fabulous and were an obvious hit with others around us.

They alway have 6-8 kinds of soup to put in the bread bowls, also their sandwiches are very good, their pecan stickybun is really good, ad their drinks are all you can drink, so get yourself a small.
