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

Fresh salads and tasty sandwich and soup. Plenty of food for a healthy diet and you don't have to worry about all the additives that you can't pronounce.

The counter staff seemed to be in a dream, not paying attention to the growing crowd of irritated breakfast customers. Then they acted sort of snotty when taking the order. It was early in the morning, which may explain their churlish attitude, but doesn't explain the rock-hard pellet of chocolate inside my croissant (which seemed day-old) or my room temp... 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
