Excellent food

The food is exactly what is promised and what I've come to expect. The Latte's are good, Mac and Cheese creamy and hot.

I was staying at the motel down the road and this turned out to be my best choice for an evening meal. There are other eateries in the mall, but they're all too specialized.

Panera Bread is great place for morning coffee along with a fresh bakery! What I like about Panera Bread is I love to have coffee and and a cinnamon roll while have a morning business meeting. It's great!

I enjoy both breakfast and lunch at this restaurant. Although their bagels are not as good bagel shop, the setting and comfort of the restaurant can make up for the difference. For lunch, I usually have 1/2 Greek salad, creamy tomato and 1 Cuban Panini ( no ham). This is simply delicious. I can do some work while eating there.... More

Varied selection, good "toothy" taste with plenty of crustiness, and Olde Worlde flavor!

I will not be returning to this particular location...I've been to Panera Bread before and liked it, but this one in Lake Forest smelled, was dirty and had fruit flies everywhere, even in the cookies case! yuck

Panera Bread is delicious! I would recommend the corn chowder bread bowl. Clean and comfy. A must try.
