Drink Issues

Go here several times a month, but a couple of issues last visit. Server was prompt and polite and had no trouble ringing up our order. However, found out there was no carbonated soda/Coke/soft drinks (and I don't like their tea or lemonade). Wife got lemonade, but when she asked for a... read more

I love Panera bread. Their bread bowls are really good and the soup is served hot not Luke warm. The panini sandwiches are also good haven't ordered a sandwich or soup I haven't liked yet. The pastries are just as good.

Panera is such a nice place to go out with a friend for lunch. Their sandwiches and soup are always tasty. The best thing especially now is the fresh pumpkin muffins, Yum! I know people bring families there but I really don't consider it to be a family restaurant. The tables are very close together and it's always packed at... More

I enjoy eating at Panera with my family. The food is always fresh and good. I think it is overly priced and they usually mess up my order everytime I go. The atmosphere is wonderful.

I am especially fond of the Greek salad. Never been disappointed with the sandwiches either. Count on Panera to have tasty food and enough choices to please most everyone. There are also menu items for children. Our grand daughter loves the sinfully rich mac and cheese while her Grandfather goes for the wonderful soups. Coffee is fresh and hot and... More

Ate lunch here Monday after wife had two run two errands. The weather finally broke -- had been rather chilly the previous few days -- and we ate outside. Can only do that at a select few places in E'town. My wife got the soup and baguette. I got smoked ham and chips. Both of us put the 99-cent pastry... More

Panera is a chain, yes. But this one out of all the ones I have visited in the area, (Louisville, Lexington, Nashville) Is by far the best, good food, fast service, and generally happy faces. Prices are about the same at most of them. And I don't care what ya say... It's just as fast and better than McDonalds any... More

I stopped going because: 1) There was hardly any meat on sandwiches I had. 2) For the size of the building, there aren't enough seats. 3) There is too much salt in the soup. 4) The prices are too high for what you get. 5) For people having to clean up after their dishes, the food/portions area unreasonable. 6) They...

This place is awesome like every other Panera Bread, but seating is limited. Wish this place was bigger, you would think it was bigger by the size of the building, but its mostly kitchen space I guess.
