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 food to be top notch at Panera.

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.

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!

If they didn't have free wifi, they'd be way less busy.
