Meets the quality standards of the rest of the chain

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!

Food is good, good portions, and reasonably priced. Casual dining, we stayed at Holiday Inn Express right around the corner and didnt want to eat big heavy meal before going drinking at the Saddle Rack.

Panera's offers a good selection of baked goods, including good soups and sandwiches for lunch. I recommend going since the choices are there, and the table seating area is comfortable. I like the fireplace which enhances the environment.

The long line may be intimidating when you walk in, but the wait really isn't that long. The cashiers are friendly and the menu has a great selection of sandwiches, salads and soups. I've never had something here I don't like. Always fresh, good portions, and the price is reasonable. The atmosphere is nice also - modern and pleasing to... More
