Decent fast food

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... read 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.

All I asked for was ham on sourdough with nothing else, just meat and bread. There was a pickle sitting on the split in my sandwich. I told the sandwich maker I can't stand pickles and to remake it. He remade it and used the same plate. Pickles leak juice! To make it worse he added Swiss cheese, the ticket... More

We were here for a convention, and just needed a place to grab a quick bite, out of the hustle and bustle, before tearing down our trade show booth. This Panera was perfect...in fact, it was SO quiet we thought that they were closed, but they WERE open, and we got delicious food served very quickly then back to the... More
