Panera is one of our "go to" places for a light meal, usually a salad and/or soup. This one provides the goods, but never seems to get our to-go orders correct. We haven't had one right in months! The food is good, just remember to double check your take out orders. When you get home and your greek salad with... More

Upon entering it was clear to see the dining area was filthy. Tables were dirty having not been cleaned and the floor had debris scattered around the tables and walking areas. Few customers were present and the restaurant was not busy. The employee that took my order was condescending, thinking she knew better and I, the customer. After placing my... More

Enjoyed our dinner. We came in and ordered takeout. Good and speedy service. Will visit again when in the area.

I typically eat lunch, not breakfast at Panera. I think their lunch sandwiches are better than there breakfast sandwiches. I had a Mediterranean egg white breakfast sandwich and so did my husband. We just had water and our 2 sandwiches were almost $9 which I thought was a little pricey.

Panera anywhere is reliably good, the McKinney location is especially good because of the staff. The food is reliably good, if there is a mistake they will make it right. Friendly service, good management

I had a ham and cheese on rye. It looked like a kid made it. Two slices of ham, some wilted lettuce a chunk of tomato on what they call rye bread. Nothing special.

The consistency is a big reason why I have visited Panera in six or more states and at least six different Panera restaurants in the DFW metro area. Breads, pastries, salads, soups are always fresh. If not let them know and they will take care of you!

The food is very good. The service is prompt. Jarrod who waited on us was great. He knew his menu and was very courteous. The problem is the noise and the rear door which is a single door. In the cold weather the rear room is very cold with people going in and out. The front has double doors. Also... More

Panera Bread has a wide assortment of pastries, coffees and teas, plus a comfortable dining space, perfect for a leisurely visit with a friend. I had the pumpkin muffin and my friend had a blueberry muffin. My friend had coffee (with a selection of about 4 types), I had tea (from maybe 6 choices). They even have a microwave available...
