While shopping in Brighton we always look forward to having lunch at Panera. You can't beat the soup and half sandwich. Love the bread and it's hard to pass up the sweets. We go here often.

I won't argue that's it's a little expensive but I like the food and for the most part it's good for you. Service is fast and friendly. Love the drive through!

They made a mistake in my order but were super quick to fix it. Good service. Coffee a bit too bitter for me.

Took the family out for a light meal. We opted for the "choose 2" which includes 1/2 sandwich and a cup of soup. Even though we all had water for our beverage the meal still came to over 9$/person. I thought it seemed a bit expensive. The 1/2 sandwich was small. It's probably a good selection to keep the calorie... More

The bread here is always good. We normally take a loaf home. The sandwiches and soups have consistently been good.

I love Panera and this one was on their game at the drive thru. I had the breakfast sandwich, eggs, bacon and cheese and it was too hot to eat till I got to work. Of course the pecan rolls are to die for. Now I too admit these are pricey, but the quality, service are all great and again,... More

Ordering a soufflé and only 20% of time they have them available. Terrible inventory management. Ordered bagel toasted and it was just warm bread. Trash in the drive through. Sloppy and poor management.

I have been to this Panera location over 10 times. Each time my bagel seemed to be a day old. The other Panera in Brighton seems it have much fresher bagels. The Panera change may have expanded too quickly. The concept is great but the quality and service really varies.

No more Panera for me, and this used to be one of my favorite lunch stops. But your food is a C- at best, brown, wilted lettuce (on numerous occasions) dry mini pieces of chicken, soup slopping all over you way too heavy plates (they are not trays-by the way) and your prices for waiting on yourself are now ridiculous....
