Big fan of Panera! Some of our favorites are their scones (orange)! and their Duet Chocolate cookie (available most of the year). Their bagels & spread are really good too. For sandwiches the Napa Almond is good and different! Also we like their Egg, bacon, cheese quiches. They have a loyalty rewards program and you earn things as you go.... More

I've only been there for lunch or late breakfast. But I keep coming back. You have to wait in line to order and they give you a pager to let you know when it's ready. Very efficient. Fuji salad is my favorite. Unique bagel flavors and outstanding cream cheeses.

Good lunch food. Try to miss the lunch rush by getting there before noon or after 1pm, otherwise good luck finding a place to sit and eat. The food tastes fresh and the soup was delicious.

The design/concept of each restaurant in this chain is ingenious. Several different stations are set up to expedite service: sandiwiches/soups, baked goods, coffees/beverages. They offer a very healthy array of sandiwches/soups, fantastic coffee "beverages", and a superb bake shop. They offer a few vegetarian options, which is helpful. Kids in our family love it, so do adults. We have held... More

Panera is a great company with excellent breads and sandwiches and drinks, and that's why I patronize them.

I ordered the cafe salad and felt it was smaller than usual, and the baquette they gave me was defimately half the size it used to be. So even thought the quantity seems less, the quality was still there. The Greek salad was very good, but ask to have the dressing cut in half as there was just too much.... More
