Stopped at Panera on the way home for a cup of soup took over 10 minutes in the drive thru for a cup of soup and a bowl of pasta. The soup, veg pesto was very good however not hot and the pasta was gross,, tasted pasty and all stuck together in a lump, no flavor and cold really disappointing.... More

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.

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!
