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.

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

While in Charleston for a conference, my friends and I had a lunch and a breakfast at the Panera which is conveniently located in the mall, but right across from the Civic Center. Every time we walked by, and both times we ate there, it was quite crowded but it's huge by Panera standards and even with a convention crowd... More

I tried to order a salad with shrimp. Found out the shrimp were from another country where the are pond raised with other animals, was told all shrimp are bottom feeders. Ordered a spinach salad without the bacon, they put bacon in anyway. I asked for my money back. I normally love Panera...what a disappointment!

Always a tough choice on which soup and salad. All are good. Enjoy the new line of pasta choices too!

I love Panera Bread. I always enjoy my meals here. The staff at this one wasn't on top of like some others, but the food was still good.

While traveling with my family, we hit the local Panera for dinner. We each placed our order; we are a family of 4. The total was over $40! We took our order to go so we could watch the March Madness basketball game (Go Blue!). When we got back to our hotel, we all dug right in to our yummy... More
