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

Went for lunch love their soup and breads are the best. I had the lobster roll one of the best around for me lots of lobster couldn't finish,brought home half of it. The lobster is real and just the perfect seasoning. I go just breads sometimes. Service is good and fast just perfect for a quick meal.

The Panera Bread on New London Ave. is in a strip mall. The picture above is not that one just in case you are looking for it and using that pic. But it is Panera Bread non the less. This location is across from Garden City Shopping Center and is a very busy location especially around lunch and dinner times.... More

I often stop at Panera's when I'm out shopping and need something for lunch. While not gourmet it is certainly is much better than McD's. My only concern is the high calorie content of some of their items - although now they list the calorie content next to the menu item - and it's shocking to see how many calories... More

This Panera is usually busy as it has all of the above. It has consistent good quality food and exceptional service. It is really a place for any time of the day. it is always clean and the staff are polite.

Not much to say about this place except that their Asian chicken salad (and lobster salad in the summer) is the reason to stop by.

My kids enjoy the asiago and/or cinnamon crunch bagels. The coffee is pretty good. They have wifi if you need it. The lunch menu is pretty good and the prices are reasonable.

I am okay with going to Panera's once in a while, but it's not a place I 'schedule' to visit. It just happens when we do not want to go anywhere or we are in the mood for some soup.
