Consistent quality, healthy choices

Panera keeps it fresh, both in the quality of the food they serve and with changes to their menu. On a recent visit we noticed some nice changes to the sandwich and soup options and the bread is always super fresh! One challenge Panera has is the ordering process.

The mac and cheese in the bread bowl is my daughter's favorite restaurant meal. She loves to have me drive her from our home in Wells, into Biddeford for this treat. Then off to the AWS in Kennebunk. There are 2 reasons for a 4 star review instead of 5 stars. First, I think Panera is overpriced for the large... More

Panera Bread has always been very fast whenever I have been there for lunch. They offer a good variety of food for a reasonable price, and it's not fast food, it is a more healthy lunch choice. They also offer free WiFi.

I spent 8.59 for a turkey sandwich today plus a fountain soda for 1.89 plus tax for a total of 11.32 and I left hungry. Sandwich made with probably about 2 ounces of meat and these huge chucks of not ripe avocado, bread was somehow grilled on the panini grill on only one side, very strange. But the bag of... More

There is a large banner outside the restaurant advertising lobster rolls and it is also listed on the menu board inside the restaurant. I waited 20 minutes in line only to be told they don't have any lobster. Perhaps take the banner down or at least have a sign inside stating that you don't have lobster?? I had limited time... More

We like the atmosphere at various Panera's we've been to, but the face that the manager stops by to check on how we're doing is a plus. We spoke to him about recycling the high-grade drink cups they use and he said corporate is working on it, and took us seriously. I really like the cream chicken and rice soup,... More

Great healthy choices, clean and fresh atmosphere, can sit inside or outside (weather depending). Teh outside seating is 'meh'. We keep going back because it is fast, simple and good. The best 'non fast food' fast food restaurant around. Comfortable seating and offers free wifi.

The food was good. It was consistent with other Paneras I have been to. I had the old standby: Bacon Turkey Bravo. Wife had a salad. Both excellent. As others have noted, the lines can get long but the staff moves things along well. Food came out quickly. What was very nice this time was that a manager stopped by... More

We came to Panera every day for lunch (Tues-Fri), and I enjoyed every thing I ordered. We all usually chose the Pick Two, and everything, soup, salad, sandwich and drink were excellent and high quality. I also thought the price was very reasonable. After 4 days in a row, I would still go again without hesitation.
