My Panera Kiosk

So, I think Panera is great as far as the food and the friendliness of the staff, and cleanliness of the restaurant. I am part of the My Panera program that sends you coupons and different promotional offers. So, I decided to finally take them up on an offer. It was a rainy day so I decided to use... read more

I have eaten at this Panera Bread location for a number of years. I guess it is a sign of the times, but it seems the portion size is decreasing. Still, the tomato soup is delicious. After a soup and salad, or soup and sandwich, my wife loves the Pumpkin muffie. Problem is, they seem to run out about lunch... More

I was at this place very frequently in June and July 2015 . They offer a huge variety of bread , makes you want to eat bread the moment you step in . The Vegetarian Creamy Tomato ,Vegetarian Black Bean Soup and Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich were what I used alternate between. They give a loaf of hard bread with that... More

I travel a lot for work and have eaten at several Panera Bread stores. Jessica and the ladies at this location are always smiling and making sure our food is fresh and our orders are correct. The coffee is hot and fresh. I really enjoy my time at this store.

We had lunch combo of soup and sandwich, great choices on offer and great value, this location had outside deck, which was most pleasant to sit under the umbrella in the warm, and enjoy our food, it was most relaxing.

Panera is consistently a good place for lunch. I love their Broccoli and cheese soup and their green tea is to die for. My only complaint is that they're a little pricey.

I've been to many Panera Bread restaurants, the one thing about this place is I've never tasted a difference from one restaurant to the other. Their food is good, though I think Panera prices are a bit high. Free Wi-Fi, of course, and nice places to sit. This one in Gastonia almost seems to have three areas that are kind... More

I love the bagels at Panera! The variety is always good except on Tuesdays when the bagels are on special. Then the selection if very slim if you get there at lunch or after. It's like they only bake them in the morning and after that, you're out of luck. The flavors are always consistent and the restaurant always clean!
