Soup to die for

I went to the Manchester Panera by the Christmas tree shop road that leads to the mall. Great atmosphere, great food and I recently found out they also donate the bread to churches at the end of each day, bravo for looking out for your fellow man.

I've been here a few times so now that I know the ropes ordering is easier. The first time I went, everyone acted very annoyed that I was the next in line and didn't yet know what I wanted. The soups have always been good and the bread is excellent. I enjoyed that I got an apple as part of... More

Panera Bread is the place to go if you're looking for different lunch fare. High quality and unique combinations make for a winning formula. I always enjoy lunch at Paneras.

Panera's is a good lunch stop or a place to meet friends for a coffee and pastry. Soups are good...salads are very good...sandwichs filling and a nice variety. They also have breads to purchase...Asiago Cheese is my favorite. Cookies and other pastries are delicious but usually have to take to go since lunch fills me up. Great value for the... More

The mall location Panera has become our latest go-to spot for weekend breakfast/coffee after walks. However, as much as the food quality is reasonably consistent, the availability of such or how efficiently it is delivered wavers with the work crew. There are times that there is no flavored coffee available at all (and this is at 9 am), and you... More

Nice choice of sandwiches and salads and pretty good bread. We brought lunch in for a business meeting and it worked out well.

I don't get meals from Panera's but the bread is always first rate and fresh. The Pecan Rolls are also excellent, but not very healthy.

As a neighbor I have visited the Panera Restaurant on Deeming Street in Manchester several times during the last two years. My last visit in late August was consistent with my previous dinning experiences there. First, there is no doubt that Panera has signature entries that can not be had anywhere else, such as their cafe salads and sourdough bread.... More
