This was my first visit to Panera Bread. They have many different choices: soups, salad, sandwiches. And the good this is different sizes! Half sandwiches, small cups of soup. The ingredients seem fresh. The food tasted good. But it was a bit more expensive than I thought. I had chips, small soup and half a sandwich for 9 dollars! Bit... More

I actually just ate at the Durham Panera Bread on Witherspoon Drive, but I would think that my comments would apply to all of their locations. My wife and I were meeting folks there at their suggestion. It wouldn't have been my choice because, as it turned out, this replicated my only other experience at a Panera Bread some nine... More

We love Paneras for breakfast, especially the egg souffles. These are like a quiche in a croissant pastry. Yummy. My favorite is the spinach and artichoke. We also enjoy lunch. My husband has tried the pasta and has loved it. I tend to stick with tried and true soup (broccoli cheddar) and a salad or half sandwich.

The restaurant had an odor of soured milk and 2-day old fish, was very crowded in mid afternoon and service slow. I wanted a sugar free iced coffee and received a strange look from the other side. Another associate was listening and made a great suggestion. Coffee was great and worth the hassle. Haven't decided if I will return.

Love Panera. Their Caesar was large. It had lots of cheese pieces on it. The dressing was very good. The smoked turkey sandwich was also good. It had a tasty sauce.

This is a nice Panera in a nice mall setting. I ordered my salad without an ingredient, but it still came with it. I did not have a lot of time to spare, and my order was the last to come out of the 5 of us who were together, and so I did not take it back, just had... More

I like that they include the nutritional information right on the menu -- it's nice to know what you're in for, and this is so much easier than going on-line. The salads are always fresh and the soups are tasty.

Our go-to place for breakfast when we visit Durham. Ample parking for breakfast before the shoppers arrive. Predictably good quality and service.

Doesn't matter if you are picking up bagels and pastries for the office, ordering lunch for a group, sitting down in-house lunch or breakfast or purchasing bread for dinner or company - you cannot go wrong with Panera. Friendly, helpful staff. Food is always fresh, always the correct temperature. Fantastic Soup! Always an A+++.

I have been here multiple times and no matter what you get it is always good. They usually have a lot of space which is great since it can get so busy. The staff is always helpful and efficient. And if there is ever any type of issue the manager is there to help you out.
