Panera Bread is located across from the Marina, steps from the Bus Station, and is a perfect place for a nice breakfast and lunch. Fresh breads, bagels, and pastries. Breakfast soufflés and sandwiches. Good coffee. For lunch there are soups, sandwiches and salads. Loafs of fresh breads to go. Consistent and flavorful. Good counter service. Pleasant staff.

Great place to grab a healthy lunch. It is a very popular spot with locals as well as visitors. The staff was friendly...the whole experience was simple and easy.

Went with a group of co-workers for lunch. A little pricey ($10+) but the quality of the food was good. I had the Bacon Turkey Sandwich combo with the steak salad. Everything tasted very fresh and made to order. I was so full I saved my apple for an afternoon snack.

We visited Panera Bread twice while we were in downtown Newport. The first time we got breakfast to go to enjoy on our trolley tour. I was sad to see my breakfast was left out of our bag! When we returned from the tour, I stopped back by and explained this, the manager was very nice and offered to fix... More

Line was a mile long, but we got our salads real quick!greek salad was great, but there were no seats inside, so we had to sit out in the cold, but it hit the spot

I've been to a lot of different Panera Restaurants around the USA, and I think that this one is the nicest. Also, the sandwich seemed to be a lot bigger than at other Paneras. The service was very nice, and I noticed that the manager came out to wait on customers when it was busy.

We ate here a couple of times when restaurants downtown were full. Typical Panera but you got the impression they did not have enough staff to really keep it up to the expected level of service. Food was ok, but they ran out of flatbread. Not the best Panera I've visited.

This place is great for a quick bit or snack. Long lines for coffee in the morning be prepared to wait in high season.

The employees seemed helpful but they do not seem used to large crowds. The Panera is in the middle of a busy section of Newport, Rhode Island. They need to get it together. What I did like however was how I can get a 99 cent pastry with a meal+ drink. In NYC, the Pastries are full priced regardless which... More

The consistency of quality is what you get with chains, but the consistency is often poor, not the case here where the quality has been consistently high. Great service and with seating outside a lovely way to start the day with a great breakfast in the sun and a sea breeze
