Panera Bread - Mechanicsville

The food at Panera Bread in Mechanicsville is always fresh and tasty. We were there for Sunday lunch, and the place was packed. I ordered the Power Salad, which was delicious and filling. My husband ordered chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese, which was equally delicious. We always find the... read more

Stopped in for a hot Chai tea latte. It was superb, providing the warm delight that I was hoping for. Service is always great is this location.

3 of us ate lunch there on Dec 31. Food was as expected, which is good. However, when one lady left her coat and went back, the manager? told her they had lots of coats that had been left there but would not allow her to look at the coats!!! She has shared this unhelpful stance on her FB and... More

My family likes to eat at our local Panera about once every two weeks. We all like the broccoli and cheese soup and their sandwiches. However, last night, as we are eating, an employee decides to vacuum the carpet under our table and around the whole restaurant while were are still eating. I went to complain and asked to see...

The Panera was not very clean and they were out of the first two things we ordered. The staff on duty were all very young and there was an air of "I just work here and an ready to leave."

I love the fast food made with high-quality ingredients. The recipes for their soups and sandwiches are great and they are always changing their menus so there is a "new" item to surprise me when I go. Their baked breads are delicious too. I will pick up a loaf to make a panini at home - great quality baked goods.

Panera always has unique choices and they are all excellent. The prices are a little higher than some other restaurants but the food is better and worth it!
