Great quick meal

I love Panera's, especially the "2 for" meal. You can choose soup and sandwich, salad and sandwich, and now they offer some pasta dishes. The food is always delicious, my favorite soup is the butternut squash soup, and the half sandwich is filling. The bread is to die for. Nice environment... read more

I don't know what it is about Panera Bread in Chicopee, but most of the people working the register are apparently too good to be taking orders. I understand its a thankless job, I understand you don't want to be there, but take your service industry job as an opportunity to hone your acting skills, and act like a polite... More

Visited on a Sunday afternoon and the dining area still hadn't been cleared from lunch. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the food was tasty and high quality, but portion size wasn't a great value for the money. The location was easy to find and there was plenty of parking.

It is - convenient, beautiful, tasty, offers diverse eating options, and is not ridiculously overpriced. Staff is friendly and competent. Food comes up very quickly. Quite the step up from McDonald's for fast food, approximately twice the price. I love the calorie counts listed on the menu boards, has helped me to not over consume.

Unique options for the discerning diner with a conscious effort on health benefits. I like to stop in for a 1/2 sandwich of my choice with a cup of soup.a great variety of freshly baked breads and goodies. Seasonal offerings of lobster rolls, cold squeezed lemonade, green tea and breakfast items are also available. The salads are also a great... More

I try to go to Panera's at least once a month for lunch. Their salads are fantastic. I have also purchased their bread to eat at home with homemade chili. During the winter, we always get baked potato soup in a bread bowl, YUM!

We visited the Panera Bread while in New England on a cool and drizzly day. The main reason we went there was to get piping hot portions of their soups, I had the Chicken with wild rice and my partner had the Broccoli Cheddar soup in a bread bowl. Both were delicious. The service is fast and the orders take... More

I would love to see some gluten-free menu items. Otherwise food is predictably enjoyable although limited selection. Menu is somewhat confusing if you don't visit often and now what you want.

Had tomato basil soup and tuna....for the 100th time. My only complaint is that the tuna was placed on the sandwich as a Ball. I had to break it down to cover the bread.
