Best Panera staff I've ever been to

The food at Panera is all the same but the staff here was very helpful and attentive - more so than any other Panera I've ever been to

Lots of seating in this Panera. Location is very good. Also has drive thru service. It took a while to get our order. One person was taking orders and the other person was busy getting a large order prepared.

First let me just say that the food was good. And the place was nice but when I told my name to the person they wrote it wrong on the slip. By that did not really matter I thought it was funny! I will come back and I know I will enjoy my meal.

I have really been becoming a fan of Panera Bread lately, and the Wausau location was no exception. The restaurant was clean and inviting, and the staff was helpful and friendly. I ordered the Bacon Turkey Bravo sandwich and chips as a side. My buzzer was already going off to signify that my food was done by the time I... More

First time here; one of the smallest Panera locations I've visited. Layout a bit strange, too. I had a bowl of the lemon chicken orzo soup and with the baguette, a very tasty lunch. The oatmeal raisin cookie was enjoyable as well. Good location on Stewart just off 51.

(A group of 6). Very comfortable. We like to go near the end of lunch rush so we can visit without feeling we are taking a table needed by others. Paneras has a menu with many choices. I had the squash soup and it was delicious. Some in the group had dessert and were pleased. I had a pumpkin latte.... More

My first visit to this Panera and it was very welcoming. My mom and I met for a quick supper before a workshop and it was perfect. Lots of options for everyone in your group - soup, salads, pasta, sandwiches, yum! The bakery items were tantalizing but after our dinner we were rather full! :) The various flavors of iced... More
