While driving in Indio CA, I searched for the closest Panera Bread and it was in La Quinta so we ordered and were there within 10 minutes. Our order was paid for online and was on the pickup shelf when we arrived. It... More

This was the second time we've been to this location, and even though it was busy both times, we were able to go through the order line quickly, and find a table easily. Love the fresh bread, and other fresh ingredients.

This place is so good you don't mind standing in line because it just gives you more time to decide what to have! The bagels are excellent!! Sandwiches, soup, salad...lots to choose from. I really like their "pick 2" option where you can choose a salad -soup- pasta - 1/2 sandwich combo that works for you. Thanks for bringing back... More

Even though it is in a strip mall, it is always busy. It is clean, service is friendly and efficient. Most of all, it is efficient. Terrific!

Good food--nice menu selection. The cappuccino is excellent. The roasted turkey BLT on sourdough was excellent. Very good food and economical prices.

I always eat at Panera when I find one. I'm comfortable with the atmosphere and I like knowing what I'm getting.

Yes, it is a chain, but they do things right. Have eaten lunch here about six times & every time we have enjoyed it. Fresh salads, delicious sandwiches & the bread... Fabulous!

It is what it is. Why do they serve bread with a sandwich? It's clean, has wifi, it's air conditioned in summer.
