Great for Lunch combos

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.

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.

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!

We occasionally have Panera Bread for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Recently we stopped in for breakfast. The service is quick and they bring it directly to your table. The restaurant is extremely clean. I'm not real fond of the ordering/payment kiosks so I do it the old fashioned way and have a real person help me. They have a variety... More

I eat at a lot of Panera Breads while traveling and this location is new and very large. The food was great, as usual and the service from the staff friendly. They are doing a new thing where you can order on line or at a kiosk for faster service. This area needs a little work. I think once they... More

This is not a top-tier Panera, it's just okay. The staff wasn't friendly nor were they unfriendly they were just folk doing their job. The food was consistent with other Paneras but there was nothing special about this location or the team. They gave you a pager to let you know when your food is ready. However, when your food...

Panera is great, food is amazing, price that fits any budget, service is awesome. Evie, our waitress went above and beyond to make our meal happier, from extra dressing to a casual talk, she made us feel very welcome. There are plenty of parking space, outdoor seating, indoor is comfortable and very cozy. Worth 2 visit and return.
