Quick Bite ....

Stopped at Panera for a quick breakfast after a 5 hour journey. Disappointed that we couldn't get a delicious egg sandwich after 10:00 am but we all carbed up with a bagel to begin our UF move in experience. Bagels were fresh and tasty...staff was very friendly.

Panera on Hwy 26 (Just past the Oaks Mall) is fantastic. Best Panera I have ever eaten in. Food is fresh and of superior quality. I really love the Chicken & Wild Rice Soup and hot fresh baguettes on Tuesday and Thursday. We take out grandson to Gator Swim Club practice four to five days a week and always stop... More

Went for Veterans day and appreciated their remembrance of the force. Place is clean and WIFI is great. Food is good but as always a bit pricey. The outdoor sitting area... More

Typical of most Panera Bread restaurants, the Gainesville Panera was friendly, fast and filled with students on their computers. Food was yummy. We had the squash soup which I highly, highly recommend!

If you are so unfortunate as to need to eat lunch on SW Archer Road, this is a pretty good choice. It is just exactly like every Panera you have been in, in every town in America. Which means quite good sandwiches and salads, and pretty clean surroundings.
