Always Fresh and Made to Order

Stopped here for lunch on way to a wake in Manchester. Just a short distance from I-293 and 101. Place was hopping a lunch time and able to order quickly but took almost 10 minutes to get food. Lot's of call ahead (to go) orders it seemed. Soup was hot as always, Autumn Squash is so good... read more

Panera is one place I can take my 9 year old granddaughters and know they are getting a fresh, healthy lunch. They both love soup/one the tomato and one the chicken noodle. I almost always have the tomato and have never been disappointed. A+ for consistency, Bedford Panera.

For a quick high quality snack or substantial lunch Panera is the place to go. The thing I like best about Panera is the ready availability of healthy foods, lots of veggies and fruits. Mediterranean type healthy foods are readily available at all Panera restaurants, but I am sure there is something for every taste. Panera in Manchester, NH is... More

Excellent food, some unfriendly people behind the counter who didn't seem to feel a smile was worth giving.

We stop by the various Panera locations usually for lunch and always enjoy the selections. Usually have soup and half sandwich. Coffee is good. We especially enjoy the mini scones though you have to purchase a box of 9 to get them. The Bedford location is large and has outdoor seating for when the weather is good. The biggest problem...

Always reliable for a nice lunch or quick supper. Staff is efficient and move things along quickly. Restaurant is clean and comfortable. WIFI doesn't always work which was one of the reasons we chose Panera for lunch on our most recent visit, a big disappointment

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.
