Splendid chocolate chip cookies

My penchant for Panera Bread comes STRICTLY from the chocolate chip cookies. I doubt that any of the food is top notch, and the coffee (which I've had) isn't bold enough. The chocolate chip cookies, however, are rather good. Cheese and turkey are delightful on a sandwich, but the ratio of turkey to... read more

Expect a long but moving line at lunch time. The food is good quality for the price. I'd skip the flat bread sandwiches. I did not care for the flat bread at all. A great bargain is a cup of soup which comes with a side, a baguette, dinner role, chips or apple. The bakery items are good. The cookies... More

Panera in Leesburg has developed poor service supplemented by high priced marginal food to an art form. It can take 20 minutes to process two orders at the understaffed order counter. The weakest item in our order of a turkey, avacato, BLT sandwich was the soggy, thin bread. Panera keeps the good bread hidden, and gives the customers the soggy,... More

A disappointing experience and a warning to other potential customer, the place is filthy. From floors to table, to seating to the partitioning everything is grossly filthy and unattended. Topping the while experience was seeing a bus person cleaning with the same rug, the tables, the chairs, the window sills, and the top of the waste container. Then refilled the... More

In my travels I have come to expect the freshest and best salads from Panera along with speedy service. This Paneras needs work. In the area for business, we stopped by for lunch. For starters, I have never, ever seen a line this long at any Paneras, and I have been to a bunch of them. We were even given... More

My boyfriend has eaten in many panera's and said they were brilliant so this was my first visit to here. The man who served us was very friendly and helpful, the food was average, the sandwich i got was kind... More

I love Panera, but this Panera is EXTRA busy at lunch time. If you're going here for lunch get there early if you want a seat. During one visit in particular my son was fussy and a man placing his order was extremely rude because he didn't like my son making noise. The staff just stood there as I argued... More

Panera never comes up short. The quality of the food is always top-notch! The greatest variable with Panera is the quality of service. At the Leesburg Panera, the team always strives to SERVE! Great job!

This was okay for a quick breakfast, but it was subpar when compared to pretty much any other Panera bread I have eaten at. The cleanliness and attention to detail just wasn't there. I ordered some pastries and they seemed overcooked and slightly stale. Disappointed. Not up to Panera standards...

This place is usually humming with patrons whenever we stop by to get food. The wait was pretty quick, the service was efficient, and food is consistently good. It's a step up from fast food, so of course, the prices are higher, but your arteries aren't running from all the fried food. The "You pick 2" - half a sandwich... More
