Fast, friendly service

Panera near the mall was fast and efficient providing a good lunch. Bakery was very fresh and everything was good.

One would think that if it's busy at lunch then the soup should be hot. But it bordered on lukewarm which was a big disappointment. I had to go back up to the already busy counter and ask for it to be warmed up. Of course, he must have set the micro to extremely piping hot and barely tolerable to... More

Wanted something instead of a burger and fries so made a quick stop on our way through Madison. I am giving a five out of five because of the great service given to us at the counter by a young man who did a great job. There was a woman in front of us who had a ton of questions... More

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.
