Healthy, fresh fast food. A great alternative to burger joints.

Trip advisor doesn't list all the Panera Bread locations. This review is for the fine establishment at 7826 West Sand Lake Road on restaurant row in Dr. Phillips. We have dined at this phenomenal establishment on many occasions and are never disappointed. The menu is varied, the food is fresh and... read more

To our surprise the line moved very fast and we placed our order and where served in a very reasonable amount of time. My flat bread sandwich (barbequed beef) and my wife's salad(huge) was well prepared and... More

Panera Bread provided us with quick meals when we were pressed for time. As organic eaters, it eased our minds to have them close by. My family and I look forward to their addition of organic meals to their menu which we were told would be coming soon. Will definitely visit again on our next trip.

Would heartily recommend this restaurant for any tine of day, personally can never stay near one without going for breakfast everyday of holiday - wonderful selection of bagels and pastries. As for lunch great soups, salads and sandwiches and the great chance of choosing mix of the three things.

It has and extensive menu,with every conceivable combos you could want or just an individual bite to eat. Everything is freshly made and tastes great.

We visited this Panera on the way back to our hotel. Staff is great! Food is the same as that at other regional Panera's, I suppose, a few items that vary by region. The staff was outstanding!

We went for the Mac and cheese and the side salad. Very good quality food although a little overpriced for what is essentially fast food

This place has a drive thru which made it really convenient especially in the pouring rain. If you are looking for something better than fast food this is the place. Great fresh sandwiches on home baked bread. Salads and flatbreads are also good. Plenty of soup choices. Would definitely stop here again when in the area.

We had a great late lunch at Panera. It was a real pleasure to have such a large choice of freshly prepared food with great flavours. This made a lovely change from other chain restaurants and we also ordered a take away sandwich for later which stayed tasty and fresh. Would highly recommend this place, the staff were very helpful... More
