Food good but too cold to eat inside. Wish they would adjust the air conditioning so I could go back more often because I do like the food but don't want to shiver when eating.

While in Gainesville, after a visit to the Florida Museum of Natural History, we stopped for a late lunch at Panera Bread. As usual, the aroma as we opened the door made us drool. The wait to order was minimal and the person taking our order was very competent and efficient. All of our food was delicious and the quantity... More

I went to Panera mid-afternoon to meet a friend for coffee. They didn't have a pot of decaf ready, so they immediately brewed one for me. That was very considerate to be so quick about it, and the coffee was very fresh as a result. It was a pleasant environment for a meeting with an old friend.

Great sandwich meals and salads when dining in. A bit pricey, but very good food nonetheless (especially their breakfast souffles). Their breads are excellent for home-prepared sandwiches and I bring an Asiago or Three-Cheese loaf home every chance I get. Fast complimentary wireless internet (wifi) in the comfortable dining area with efficient airconditioning. The only criticisim I would have for... More

The food at Panera is consistently of high quality. Parking is difficult at the Gainesville location and that is the main drawback. Every February I buy lunch for everyone in my department and it is always fresh, accurate, and well packed when I pick it up. We love going to Panera on Saturdays for soup and sandwiches as a special... More

We love Panera but don't have one in our hometown so we always find one while traveling. The food is always consistently good wherever we go. Parking was a little hard to find due to location but the food is worth the wait for parking. Try Panera once and you'll keep going back.

Real Cream Tomato soup, real Thai tasting flatbread sandwich, quite different from the same identical items in Panera Bread in Ocala, Fl. Panera Bread could improve their corporate image by comparing the taste, preparation and presentation of similar items in nearby stores. The difference can be night and day,between similar stores nearby. The taste, and presentation were quite different in... More

Your typical Panera. You'll see the same food options and the same smiling faces. The plaza is a little crowded and traffic patterns make it difficult to navigate, but this is no fault of the restaurant itself. Busy on weekends; study place for college students.
