Bread! But the Cinnamon Bagels are addictive

You can always get a good bowl of soup and some creative sandwich combinations here. The bread is fresh and tastey but the star of the show is the cinnamon bagles. Coffee is decent here too. I like that they put a time on the coffee thermos to tell you when it was made.

We live VERY close to this Panera and used to go there all the time. However, our last few visits not only has the food been sub par but the service has been bad, as well. One night we ordered the new noodle bowls, only to get a bunch of tiny bits of noodles and an inaccurate take out order.... More

Stopped in for breakfast, ordered the bacon, egg & cheese on a ciabatta, the slice of bacon was the thinnest I'd ever seen, the wifi was not working, nothing special.......

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

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. 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."
