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

I hadn't been to Panera's in quite a while and hadn't realized that the menu had changed. There is a nice selection of sandwiches, soups and salads. Because this is a casual environment you can sit as long as you like without being chased out. The staff seemed a little overwhelmed (they were all busy doing other tasks and 3... More

Great place to stop on your way to northern Wisconsin or the Dells. Easy on/off access from the highway.

I've stopped by this Panera a few times on my way to Chicago and I always get quick and friendly service. The food at Panera is quite good. I love their salads, soup and especially their bread.
