One good thing about Panera is the consistency of its food. They have improved the service here as they now bring your food to you rather than being buzzed and picking it up. Soup and sandwich pick too was great. French onion and Sierra turkey hit the spot.

I've been to this location a number of times, and even though it's often busy, I've always received quick and quality service. However, I had an experience today that I had to share. After making a big purchase earlier today, my bank called to say I had a potential fraudulent charge. I spoke to the bank to clear up the... More

This is a good place to grab a quick lunch that is healthy and tasty. I ordered pesto pasta while my colleague ordered half a turkey sandwich and half a salad. We chose a spot at the outdoor patio and our order was brought to our table. You can never go wrong with Panera Bread.

My cousin held her baby shower at the location on East Sunshine and it was a blast! They had really good service and was very helpful in making suggestions. Their food is really great and I definitely recommend the cheddar and broccoli soup bread bowl- it's my favorite!

My wife and I had dinner there this evening. We both had soup and split an Asian sesame salad. I had the baked potato soup; it was fantastic, as was my wife's tomato basil soup. The salad was fresh and more than enough for us to share. Kudo's!

I love their choice of soup with a half sandwich! I have a Panera Bread card that every time I eat at Panera Bread, they swipe it and I earn free food items on future visits. I can always count on the food being delicious and appealing. The staff is very efficient and friendly.

Panera has a variety of savory and sweet bagels, soup/sandwich combos, salads, cookies, brownies, and bread bowls. The kids' menu has a healthier selection than most places. The cinnamon crunch bagel, chicken noodle soup, and grilled cheese are particularly good.

I love this place, they have some excellent sandwiches, salads and soups. They have this stawberry salad which is seasonal, excellent salad. I have tried most of their sandwiches and have never been disappointed.

Always a winner. StL Bread Co/Panerra's is always a winner. Good food, consistent quality at a fair price. We love this store and our server, Carl, was especially helpful. We'll be back again!

I don't like it that they took away the seniors discount and give you a 'free' bagel with every $100 of purchases all the while collecting valuable shopper trend information. But the food is consistent and the service quick.
