Best Panera Bread

I live in New Jersey and I'm not really crazy about our Panera Bread restaurants here. I must say though that I visited this location in Chattanooga and had a wonderful Greek salad. It puts the New Jersey Restaurants to shame. I had lunch here and enjoyed it so much that I came back the day I was... read more

This location is ideal for just about everyone working in the city which makes lunch time a bit of a mess but they do a great job at getting everyone in and out quickly. Everyone is friendly and fast. Good food, panera perfect!

Good sandwiches, good salads, good soups, awesome pastries....great selection.....great value. I wish they would bring back the smoked salmon soup. They haven't had it in a while. Great thing about Panera, they are consistently good wherever you are throughout the USA.

We ate breakfast here both mornings and enjoyed the food and coffee greatly. The food is always hot, fresh and tasty. There are multiple options so you don't have to have the same thing each visit. We adore Panera Bread!

Downtown Chattanooga again, and looking for breakfast. I wondered why no one was in Panera at 9 o'clock on a Saturday Morning. Well the regulars already knew what we were about to find out- that this one's not at all up to Panera's usual wonderful standards. The place is worn out.... dirty carpets, filthy rest room, and a messy food... More

Was looking for a place in the riverfront area and found Panera bread. The asagio bacon egg sandwich was very good as well as the pastry selection. The layout was a bit confusing and some issues with staff but would not keep us from going back because the food was just too good. Location convenient to many of the hotels... More

Panera Bread locations are universally excellent, and this one is among my favorites. The location downtown is convenient to attractions and is staffed with quality employees. The food is fresh, tasty, well-prepared and a much healthier alternative to many other places. The coffee is excellent as well. My wife and I discovered Panera years ago on a trip to Galtinburg....
