Best Lunch Experience

Without a doubt, we have enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner at our local Panera and at the one in Parker and Lone Tree. Great food, and consistency is the major key. I find it a bit messy and unkept during peak hours, but one can get over that when the food is really good. And, we just learned... read more

Very bad experience! Out of apples, crossaints, tea, avocados, the 2 smoothies we ordered came after our whole family finished eating. First time a Panera disappointed us.

new manager Christina solved our confusion by literally taking things in her hands while showing her novice employees a lesson in hospitality. a Cuban Panini and Thai chicken flatbread were masterfully whipped up and sent along for our picnic outing along the river nearby.

Either this place simply hires unhappy people or mngmt treats its workers poorly. It shows and people notice. I've had a handful of rude experiences and made adjustments not to come here anymore. But thats the problem with large cooperate restaurant chains, people working there usually do not care about their jobs. Wish we could get some local ma and... More

Hike or bike at South Platte Park. To satisfy the appetite you generated stop in here. Soup with bread is a good deal. Try them all. All are winners. If this is your first time spend some time checking out the somewhat strange restaurant model. It's fine once you figure out where everything is and how the system works. Ask... More

Normally, i like Panera, but this one seemed to have service issues. Food was mediocre, soup was not good. Will pass on coming back.

Standing in line at Aspen Grove Apple store made us famished, and we wanted a quick but good sandwich. Having had some questionable experiences at Paneras elsewhere in the past, I was hesitant to try again. However, it turned out quite well. I got a grilled cheese, and it was truly excellent. We will likely go there again when in... More

I've tried a bit of everything, and have found everything to be really good. The bread that they serve with soup and salads, however, is NOT good. The crust is way too hard. The desserts are fabulous...everything!
