In South Portland near the Maine Mall. OK but very slow. Inexperienced staff, disorganized. Place not very clean. We had soup and sandwiches. Noisy and crowded. We eat at our local Panera in Florida and it is hard and shoulders above this one.

We stopped in one morning in early October, 2014, for a "To-Go" breakfast. The service was quick and accurate, and the staff was unbelievably friendly.

I am a frequent diner at Paneras. I had breakfast here on 9/7/14. I enjoyed the oatmeal with blueberries and granola. Place was clean and staff were nice. Only disappointment was the giant fly sitting on the pastries and moving from pastry to pastry the whole time I stood in front of the counter ordering. The cashier didn't seem to... More

We were somewhat lost around the Maine Mall with the on and off ramps to the 95. We came into Panera by chance. Lunch was great, the staff very helpful and patient with "newbies", explaining choices and how to order. Our food was served quickly and the quality was very good. A good bet.

We were traveling in Portland, ME and got sidetracked (lost). After driving around this widespread city, we got hungry and not knowing the area, saw good old Panera Bread sign. Standard layout and service. Very clean and great staff. Manager was out front to greet folks and help people and saw him take time with some elderly folks. Nice to... More

Went in to grab a snack and got cinnamon rolls. They were a little pricey but soft and very fresh. The girl behind the counter was very friendly and although busy service was fast. Went late in afternoon so selection of desserts was small would go in the morning when there's more to choose from.
