preferred panera

Panera in the Charleston Town Center mall is just another well run Panera. Food is consistently good, coffee is fresh and hot. As its at the Civic Center end of the mall, parking is limited to the standard mall parking. Otherwise, highly recommended.

Their Thai salad was wonderful but I can't say the same about the bread that came with it. It would have been perfect for soup - it was very crusty - but not at all suitable for salad.

I love that I have some healthy choices here even though you have to watch the calorie count with the bread and temptation of pastries. My only complaint is that it is SOOO cold inside you have to wear a jacket in the summer time. They have a nice outdoor eating area with umbrellas so that is always a good... More

Lunch was very good as you would expect at Panera's. Soup and sandwich. Their soups are always good. I had potato soup and a turkey and cranberry sandwich. Good.

Staying nearby, I went in at about 3 p.m., way past lunch, not expecting much of anything fresh or good. I got a combo chicken wrap, salad, and drink which turned out to be very good, tasty, and fresh. Service was quick, friendly, and efficient.

Panera is a good place for lunch. They have a good variety of salads, sandwich's and soups. My favorite is their deserts especially the Cinnamon roll or Cinnamon bagel.

I have never been to a Panera with employees who are as friendly as this staff was. I felt like they cared about us and the service that they were providing.

We love Panera!! The best fresh bread anywhere. I've never ate anything I did not like from Panera. You can never go wrong eating at Panera. There is something for everyone.

Panera is usually consistent wherever I go. Food was consistently good, staff was friendly. One of our orders was done inaccurately (training issue?)but quickly corrected.

Why they would allow someone to take orders that obviously was incompetent is beyond me. Wanted to check my reward status and was initially told that she couldn't do that. I had multiple orders but after giving her the second order, she said that I had just asked for something different from what I had ordered. Is taking multiple items... More
