Favorite sandwich spot

Enjoy eating here before going to the show. We order the Tomato/Chicken Noodle/Baked Potato soups (depending on the weather) and Italian Combo Sandwiches with chips. They have nice booths and tables to select from and eat your meal here. Many people take advantage of the free WiFi. Usually... read more

Had my favorite lunch...tomato basil soup and a small Greek salad. The service was prompt and efficient, they left off the peppers and onions as requested and my lunch was everything I expected it to be. It is so nice to see consistency from location to location.

Really enjoy their salads and sandwiches. Usually get the half sand and salad, everything is always fresh. Service is great and friendly.

I moved away from the Bay Area 7 years ago, but on a recent visit had a light meal at Panera Bread. I had the 1/2 sandwich and soup. Both were very good, but I must agree with some other reviewers that the prices are a bit high for the area. However it's nice to know some more upscale places... More

The sandwiches were fresh and the service was good. Most of their restaurants are top notch and not expensive.

Aside from spilling hibiscus tea and lemonade (booji Arnold Palmer) all over the drink area, the restaurant was great and so were the people. Not many chances to speak to VCs and when you do, make sure that you're not ordering a drink and talking business at the same time. Could be considered hazardous to your business health.

What can I say, the food here is great. But.. Gosh darn these guys are expensive. If they were to ever bring their prices down out of the clouds, I would gladly to visit way more often.

Yess their breads, pastries, scones, swirls, bagles, tarts, coffee and cakes are delecious, but don't be surprised to pay $10 bucks for a sweet and a cup of joe. This place will definitely make your butt bigger while making your wallet smaller! Enjoy in moderation.
