Went in order lunch and told them what I want. They got order wrong first time and the second time. I just give up and took salad. It was terrible I could only eat chicken out of it. I did like the sweet tea. Will not eat there ever again!

Grabbed a quick meal there prior to attending the Grand Ole Opry. Couldn't be more convenient as it's next door to the Ryman, where the Opry is housed in the winter. Soups are always great. I had the tomato-basil and spouse had the chicken w/wild rice. Sandwiches are made fresh.

Great location in downtown. Food was good but they were out of a lot of things when we got there at 9:00 in the morning on a Thursday--no more cinnamon bagels, we got the last two whole grain flat breads for our breakfast sandwiches. Service was fast, not over-friendly though.

Location, location, location is an old saying..... today it is service, service, service! We are visiting Nashville and stopped at Panera for lunch. Nashville is known as the Friendly City and it is something that most people take seriously, but at Panera..... well...... it all turned out well! We were greeted with friendly service and when we went to retrieve... More

A lot of choices, and a whole lot healthier then going to a fastfood joint, and for about the same price if not cheaper. I love the asiago steak sandwich on sourdough

Excellent place for lunch. Excellent soup, salad and sandwich choices. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Don't let the line scare you; they take your order and money rather quickly and bring your food to your table. Great place to people watch.

We ate one lunch there; the food is what you expect. I don't care for their chips, which is a choice of three options, apple, yogurt, or chips. My daughter picked the chips and wished she had picked the apple.
