good dependable eatery

I have eaten at Panera Breads in other cities and the Columbus location is consistent with the rest of the chain. Very well operated and managed. The food is fresh and delicious. It costs more than other fast food lunch/dinner options but is well worth it.

All I have to say is YUMMY!!! The chicken soba noodle bowl is a delicious meal.... ;-) In addition, the hospitality was very enjoyable and detail service was very accurate.

So disapointed when I got my $7.29 sandwich. The bread was dried out, had three small chunks of turkey with a glob of mayo. It had been made too long before my 10 minute wait in line. I've eaten many wonderful things at Panera, but the turkey sandwich was terrible.

Of all my visits to Panera, I had never made an evening visit around supper time. They were slammed but the staff was humming along and everyone seemed to be handling it well. The kitchen was cranking out lots of yummy food. My daughter wanted me to pickup her some tomato soup and I saw that their tasty squash soup... More

Used this place for catering and visited on several occasions including last week. The catering order was wrong and when I addressed management about missing items, they blamed the problem on someone else and gave me an attitude about "giving me the items if I come in to get them." It was a catering order, not a personal order and... More

I have been 3 times in the last month and this last time really did it for me. First of all when I walked in there was this odor in there that I can't describe; that should have been my indicator to leave right then but I didn't. After I placed my order and went to get my drink that... More

A very comprehensive selection of breads and pastries on offer with very good coffee made to your requirements to wash it all down with. Great start to a morning.

Filthy. Have visited twice in the last three months and the windows were dirty, there was food dropped on the floor, food under tables, and the prep area behind the counter look disheveled and unclean. I will not eat here again. This is not to the Panera Bread standard at all.

This is a great Panera location but they still have some bugs in their on-line order system. The food and service is fine but twice I have made on-line orders, received the email acknowledgment and when I arrived to pick them up they didn't have the order! In both cases, they quickly put the order together but my advice is... More
