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.

It has no flavor and no body at all.. The dark is weak also.. I would go there was a bagel or some other treats but not... More

The food at Panera bread is really good. The people that work here are pretty nice as well. I think it is a bit overpriced, but that is a corporate thing with this restaurant. It is a good place for lunch.

The homemade bread is awesome, especially in a soup bowl. Breakfast is overpriced and ye coffee selections are poor. Outside dinning area is nice and clean. Staff seemed new and needed a lot of help from management.

Love the breakfast panini, the smoothies, the soups and the salads. I love that they have lower sodium and low fat items. Love the atmosphere, too! And the manager at the Etown store is fantastic! Only thing I wish is that they offered a military discount. The store in Tacoma, WA has military Tuesdays where they offer 10% that day.... More

We have visited Panera Bread in other towns but were not impressed. They always just seemed like a drive thru bagel eatery. This E-Town Panera is very much like your favorite small coffee house/bakery/deli/hot spot/etc. It is the best of all of these. The coffee is very delicous and always freshly brewed. The pastries are fresh and fly out the... More

Just discovered Panera Bread in Elizabethtown (31W North towards Radcliff in Kroger shopping center). I understand there are other locations, but this is the first one I experienced. The first reason I went was for a cup of coffee. I was not disappointed. Much cheaper than the other famous coffee seller down the road. Then, I tried breakfast. What a... More
