Nice Panera restaurant

Very nice Panera restaurant. Good food just like most Panera restaurants. The wait staff was friendly. Inside setting was nice. The mall it's in isn't the nicest and the area seems a little run down.

Had been traveling by car for three days and when we stopped for the night in Nashville I was so excited to see ps era bread downtown. I know. I know. All those places on Broadway but I was craving a fresh salad and a great bowl of soup. They delivered on both! There was a large convention in town... More

Great food - like all Panera Bread eateries. Great service even when crowded. If this place can manage CMA Fest crowds, it can manage anything!

We had a late night drive-through from Panera Bread - trying the chicken tortellini pasta, mediterranean chicken and bbq chicken flat breads, italian combo sandwiches, low-fat mango smoothie and cafe latte coffee. It was all good. However check your order before you drive away though as we had one item missing, only discovered when we got back to our hotel... More

We stopped for a repeat visit before a concert to get coffee and dessert. They sold us two coffees and the self self serve pots were empty for our first two choices. We inquired for resupply but it did no good

Stopped by Panera because I have alway had a good experience. However this location is Slow, slow, slow. Waited in line for 10 minutes and the staff seemed to care less that we were even there. So, we left. Many other good restaurants in the area.

If you have been in one you have been in this one too even if you have never been . Same menu on the main drag near Vanderbilt University. Average food at mid level prices and it will not be a culinary mecca experience. the Doctor

Good for a quick breakfast and close to the hotel. Egg white sandwiches and coffee. Friendly staff. You can order ahead and they will place the carry out in a bag in a special area.

The best bread and bagels in town. Soups and sandwiches are also excellent. Sourdough bread and French Baguettes are superb. Don't leave without getting a Cinnamon Crunch Bagel.
