Great Breads!

I've been buying Breads and having soup and sandwiches every year for the past few years that I have been visiting LA Quinta. Excellant! Love the rye Bread.

I had never tried a Panera until I moved to California. I love this place. The staff is always cheerful and helpful. You can order online before you arrive, to save some time in busy times. You can even order inside on computer kiosks to avoid any lines inside. Once you setup payment and do this a couple times, it... More

While service at Panera's is always slow, now the food has dipped. While I'm normally just a soup guy at this place I ventured out of my comfort zone and ordered a Napa Chicken Salad sandwich recently and brought it home. When I got home and opened I was stunned to see the sandwich contained about 5 small chucks of... More

Manager taking our order said the hot water was not working so coffee had to be in paper cup no mugs clean. Well, we asked, what about the bowls for the soup we just ordered? We will wash them by hand if necessary, he replied. My we should have fled. But, served sloppily with plastic ware, missing the bread and... More

I went in and I saw there a computer so you can simple order your items and pay on card. The foods was excellent and server was polite to bring to our table. Except you have to pick the cup for self serve on the drinks. One thing, if you really want the receipt then ask the server to provide... More

I am a big fan of this place, I wasn't that hungry but was very thirsty, the hibiscus iced tea was so good! And every time I go there I have a "pick 2" choice, but this time I had 1/2 chicken Thai sandwich and it was the best one I've ever had. Well, I'm sure they are all the... More

Panera introduced a new tool for ordering which is via an app for use on my phone. 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.

Thank Kathy S
