Panera has it's niche and it fills a need in some markets, but Coronado is a small town dependent upon locals and tourists for it's income....and, local businesses have paid the price when the chains move in to town. I have no problem with Panera's offerings, business model or appearance, but in our small town, that Panera Sandwich and coffee... More

I know this was probably just good timing but a lovely employee was giving out free chocolate chip cookies when we dropped by. A great additional to those yummy broth bowls that Panera is now offering.

The orange scones are my favorite. Stopped in during my morning walk for an always fresh orange scone. And, I always heat them up for just a bit in microwave they are so kind to provide. DELICIOUS!

Quite spacious right on Orange Ave. Excellent vegetarian choices of pasta and soup. Service was bit slow and they could improve on that front.

Quality wise, Panera bread is Panera bread, as expected. However in Coronado sandwiches and panini were too small. Same size bread but not as much cheese, meat, etc as I used to in our local Panera

Of course this Panera Bread has the same menu as others, but it is a great option in a busy tourist location like Coronado. Usually not super crowded in the evenings, it offers a reasonably fast meal option in a casual environment. It is nice to have an eatery where you know exactly what to expect, the pricing is fair...

We stopped in to get a loaf of fresh baked bread, and noticed all the delicious food being served so decided this was the perfect place for lunch. We ordered a 1/2 chicken Cesar salad and a avocado, bacon chicken sandwich on sourdough to share. Along with the sandwich we received a bag of kettle chips and an apple. As... More

Great service and location to our Cherokee Lodge. We loved the morning coffee, breakfast sandwiches and the upbeat attitude of the staff. Very nice small patio on the rear if you'd like to eat outdoors.

Stopped in after a bike ride. Was able to leave the bikes in front and enjoy our quick light lunch we wanted on a day we were headed to San Diego for a nice dinner. It was perfect for what we wanted and we knew what we were going to get because we have been to one before. It is... More
