Good food

I go often for takeout and sometimes eat in. I love the pick two. My favorite is the half chicken salad sandwich and Asian salad. Their chocolate chip cookies are to die for and are usually warm; expensive but worth it.

The new salad dressings are terrible. Also they need to train their employees to use a clean bagel slicer when they slice a plain bagel, I hate when they slice my bagel with the same slicer used to slice a savory bagel. Nasty.

Panera Bread is pretty standard everywhere you go. The service was fast and pleasant. We only stopped for coffee and some croissants, but they were fine. The atmosphere was good and rather busy (around lunch time).

I have come to detest this place. The food is so average, they charge too much, service is slow, there are 50 places within a mile I'd rather eat.

We usually use panera for a quick takeout dinner. The food is consistent and always good. The only downside is that they sometimes run out of the normal bread for the sandwiches and have to substitute. That hasn't happened in a while and they never do it without asking. The new app for ordering on line with your iPad or... More

My initial desire was to have a nice asian lunch at a place just down the strip mall, but that place was ignoring their customers so walked down to what has usually been "dependable". I arrived before 1 PM, and in the past that was a time when Panera was at 200% capacity, when I walked in I was surprised... More

Good food, fresh and depending what you pick can be very healthy. I love the Egg White, Avocado & Spinach Breakfast Power Sandwich. So good! Watch out though it comes out smokin' hot. The iced green tea is also fantastic. I tend to hang out for a bit when I go, as a grad student it is a great place... More

This place was a short walk from our motel. Panera's has a great breakfast and good coffee. In New England, one can also get a lobster roll for lunch or dinner. We always enjoy Panera's because we know what to expect.

This is like every other Panera. Its clean, service is quick, great for business meetings or lunches. Food is always good. There are a few extra younger people working here which seemed to provide a little more goofiness when placing my order but nothing unusual for teenagers. Overall it was a decent experience. I would go here again.
