Perfect Light evening meal

Quite impressed with the wide menu choices and generally healthy faire. It was the perfect evening meal of a Tuna Salad with a Clam Chowder side. Just the right amount, with minimal wait while out for an evening walk.

Went here for supper as Panera is one of my favorite restaurants. Limited bagel and sweets selection. Stale baguette. Excellent Broccoli cheddar soup.Ice tea is good. Strawberry Poppyseed salad is a must try item. Very good.

Panera has good food that I would call better than fast food. The service and food are consistently good. We have never had a bad experience at Panera.

A great place to stop and relax for a well-prepared lunch. Quick and easy to access in a convenient downtown location.

For this just being a sandwich and soup place, I feel the food is a bit overpriced and not all that good. I get that its supposed to be made from better, healthier ingredients but to its still "fast food". I have had not so good experiences there with the staff and there consistent chatting and talking about their weekend... More

So I ordered my food online (www.panerabread.com) and received my confirmation email. When I reached the location, they had not kept my order ready (I had opted for their Rapid Pick up option). When I inquired, they said, its almost done. The lady then said" We are out of Chicken Noodle Soup!". Its only 11:30 AM and they don't have... More

Panera Bread has a great selection of soup and sandwiches. Lots of seating. The fireplace adds a pleasant ambiance to the room and is great to sit by on a cold day. They have fresh baked bread that fills the restaurant with pleasing aromas. My favorite soup is their Broccoli Cheese (although all their soups are delicious). Coupled with a... More
