Even though I have an aversion to chain restaurants (where everything is always the same), I like to go to Panera's because they have an option that is half a sandwich, half a salad/bowl of soup, an apple/chips, a drink, and with a dollar more a choice of pastry. This "half" option is comforting because I am not a big... More

We arrived around 7:45-closing is 9:00- I order the "new flatbread" sandwich. They were out of all the flatbreads ! Now this is their new hot thing. I had it previously and really enjoyed it. The young girl taking our order admitted they were frequently out of the flatbreads this time of the evening- over an hour before closing. Clearly... More

Never disappointed. They serve fresh food fast and creatively. Soups are incredible. A nice, clean, comfortable atmosphere.

I really love Panera, it's a little expensive. For a chain deli it's is very good! They have really good soup and sweets also! I usually go there for lunch.

While in the area I needed a place to have lunch and do a little work. Panera Bread in West Des Moines was the place for me. Excellent service and the sandwiches are freshly made with their amazing bread. The use of the Wi-Fi of course added to the pleasant visit.

I love fresh baked breads and enjoy picking things to add to the breads to make a delicious sandwich.

Not to say that others in the chain are bad. N, they are all, for the most part, very nice. However this one is large, clean, and traffic friendly flowing. Right by the food court so it is easy to find. Join the club and get a few things free during the year. Panera Bread is a Gotta Go kinda... More

Excellent sandwiches, coffee and pastries... oh the bear claws so delicious. Great for lunch or breakfast. It wouldn't be my choice for dinner.

Any visit to any of the local Paneras is always good. Though it is a chain it is still excellent.
