We stopped here on the way back from Galena. The sandwich & salads were great tasting. The coffee was good but not as good as we usually get from a Panera Bread restaurant.

We set our laptop on the small table behind the chairs and plugged in for an important event...Ate our... More

I am a fan of Panera and have been to numerous locations. Today was my first visit to the Rockford location. The lady taking my order handed me a plastic spoon by touching the food contact portion and not the handle. I called her out on it and she retrieved another spoon by using napkins to pick up the spoon.... More

Don't get me wrong, I like Panera, and eat at their restaurants a lot. It had been at least a couple of years since I went to this one in Rockford when I went there for lunch yesterday. I would say that the food I had ( a grilled cheese and tomato soup) was on par with what you usually... More

When you go to Panera, you know you will get fresh food at a reasonable price. I use them a lot for catering for my business and my customers love their sandwiches. You cant go wrong at panera.

I like to visit more local places when I travel, but since we don't have a Panera Bread at home, I couldn't resist! I had the roast beef and cheddar broccoli soup (really good!). This location was clean and staff was nice! My cousin and I went there after a morning of shopping - she said the place is always... More

Now that I have a Panera card I do earn points - towards things like my favorite Peach smoothie - which I would not buy at $3.99 a drink. But after enough points - I got one free last month. and this month I got a free bagel - I didn't even know that they had! It was French toast... More

I generally go to Panera at least weekly. Wonderful sandwichs, love the breakfast power sandwich for a low calorie breakfast. Good coffee and nice atmosphere!

We love this place, no matter where you find one it's always great. None of us have ever eaten anything here that we would say is anything short of five-star in taste. In fact, we always say that Panera seems to be able to make the simplest thing, like tomato soup, into something extremely delicious. And their salads just seem... More
