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

We typically do not frequent or review chain restaurants, but we found ourselves at the Coronado location of Panera. We love their breads and I think that they have done a good job of making constant changes to their food menu to remain competitive. We like the salads and the half and half salad/soup/sandwich options. If you are feeling healthy,... More

This Panera lived up to the expectations I have come to rely on, It is located on a quiet little steet lined with stores, righ on coronada island and down the street from Hotel del Coronado. Unlike other Paneras, the wait staff here, clears the table for you.

Believe it or not, this was our first time eating at a Panera Bread restaurant. We were visiting California and our daughter-in-law suggested this place for lunch. My husband and I ordered the soup and half sandwich deal. It came with a side of bread, chips or fruit. We all got different meals. Everything was great. Now that we've tried... More
