Great drinks and sweets. Can't stop for lunch without buying some rolls for breakfast or a large cookie for an afternoon snack. Clean, good service, really good sandwich and soup but the prices are higher than other places.

I was on a road trip and stopped here to visit with a friend. Somewhat busy, so takes time to get food even when it is already made such as the spinach and artichoke Kisch that I had. Juice is in a bottle and you get your own coffee from dispensers like you would at a gas station/c-store. I'm not... More

Panera is a good place to stop while on the road, and this one is located a short distance from the 39-90-94 corridor. It gets busy, but the service is good. Food is a nice alternative to the typical fast-food options. Free wi-fi is handy. Note the men's room at this location is pretty small for the size of the... More

My experience at the E. Springs Dr. Panera Bread location in Madison, WI was not the greatest. I was surprised because I have grown to love Panera and I had never had a bad experience at one before. The restaurant was very busy because a home WI Badgers game had just ended. My friends and I decided to stick it... More

Panera is always good. I love their food and this time was no exception. The only problem with Panera is they get SO CROWDED at times. It doesn't stop me from eating there though.

We never miss Panera when we are near one. Hazelnut coffee and cinnamon crisp bagels, mmmm! Good sandwiches and breakfast entrees too.

I especially like bagels and other kinds of bread, so I found Panera Bread to be a nice place. I've only visited one time so far, but I really like it and can't wait to go back! I had macaroni & cheese with a baguette on the side. Both were delicious! Nice atmosphere and very clean.

We've stopped at this location a few times as we've travelled through the area, and we've always been happy with the food and service. It is consistent with other Panera Bread locations, which is one of the attributes you look for in a chain. It's definitely better traveling food than traditional fast food choices!

I frequently "use" Panera Bread on Madison's East Side as a place to meet folks for "meetings" and to eat! It provides a good atmosphere where we can meet for an extended period of time. It is just off the Interstate - with easy off/on access. The food is always good and the new items on the menu are wonderful... More
