We eat here at least 1-2x/week. Son gets lunch and dinner take outs too. Very convenient place to eat before or after a movie. Salads are great. Combo soup and salad/sandwich is perfect for a light meal. Clean and fast service. Has rewards.

Panera Bread does a good job of providing very good salads as well as soup and sandwiches and the like. Plenty of seating and rapid service.

We like the Pick Two choices with soup and sandwich. The food delivery service to the table is always prompt. Free WiFi is a bonus too.

This is pretty typical of most Paneras except this location has the friendliest lady working there. I don't recall her name, but anytime I mention this to friends, everyone immediately recognizes who I'm talking about! The food is what you'd get at any Panera, good, reliable and consistent. But what causes me to stop here is the service which is... More

This is a very nice restaurant without the need of having to be waited on at the table and tipping. Sandwiches and salads are the specialty. Quick service and free wi-fi. This is one of the best places around for a quick lunch.

Good quality and efficient service for lunch in Fremont. They have squash soup now that is very tasty. Easy place to take a work colleague, because you pay separately up front and avoid the awkward "I'll pay", "No, I'll pay" conversation.

I like the legendary story of Panera and some of its food options, so I visit a couple Panera throughout the country. I found this location is below the average. Soup was very salty, making me wondering if it is canned soup. Meal bundling was inconsistent. I ordered two same combos, but one came in with an apple and one... More

Tasty food.Visited Panera, Princeton on my friend's recommendation. Let me tell you that Panera quality varies at different location. The one I visited at Fremont, CA was really bad.

Even if the AC is very cold, the place is very nice. I love this place for lunch, there is a large choice for salad and sandwich and they are all very good!
