Met together with all family members several of whom jus finished golf at near by course. Food was exceptional with a great selection.. Having the ability to have a cup and half sandwich makes your choices so easy. The bread is to die for..

We were here for a short stopover on our way north. Had lunch and were happy as in any other Panera.

They have one of the biggest, best lobster rolls anywhere!! Sweet, succulent lobster chunks on a fresh Panera roll. I only wish they had this on their menus here in FL

I went to Panera inNampa opening day and it was busy. Everyone was friendly and helpful. They were giving away free coffee mugs. Coffee was great however the breakfast I ordered was not. I ordered the power breakfast bagel with ham egg and cheese. It was flattened in a panini press and burnt on the outside. I asked them to... More

I appreciate that Panera's menu is constantly evolving, and I love their new soba noodle soup/dishes. The baguettes are crunchy and delicious as side items, and it's a great place to meet a friend and chat and mubch!

Opted for a dependable chain restaurant for lunch near the Maine Mall. Despite the busy noon hour crowd, service was fast and friendly. Chose one of their combo items - the French Onion Soup with a half panini. The soup was excellent, and the sandwich very good, but wish the sandwich had been grilled more so that the baguette had...
