Really good lobster roll

I had the half and half. It was the broccoli and cheddar soup with a lobster roll. I was expecting the soup to be good, but I thought the lobster roll was going to be skimpy, but was I wrong! The soup was really good and the lobster roll was packed with lobster and was soooooo good. I highly... read more

Just updating since my last review to say that they are maintaining the high quality of food and service. Visited twice on this trip and both times the selection and quantity of breads and pastries was great and service equally good. Happy to know they are moving to Chapel Hill where I hope it will be easier parking and more... More

We went to this location twice in a row for breakfast and very much liked we were able to get salads early in the day along with the more traditional breakfast selections. The food and coffee were both very good.

We travel to Panera's whenever we need a quick bite. The sandwiches are interesting and tasty. The coffee here is not the best in the world but the refills are free, so the price is right.

Sometimes you do not realize a good thing, only until you try somewhere else. On this trip to the Cranston area, we tried the new Corner Bakery in Garden City. Although it was ok, I realized I still liked Panera better. The selection, quality, portions are all extensive. The food is always fresh and always tastes delicious. Yes, the place... More

Went to have coffee. When we walked in, there was a tape up but no sign to say where the line started. Two women were ahead of us at the counter ordering. Ten minutes later, still waiting our turn. The women moved to the far end where you pick up orders, and the clerk went with them. As she passed... More

This location is always packed, often so much that you can't find a seat. I find all Paneras overpriced. Their coffee and pastries are average. You can get a better sandwich at other restaurants in the area. To boot I was double charged for an item and did not realize until I got home! Corner Bakery opening soon across the... More
