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

For fast food, the options for healthier choices are there. The food is average to good, and the bread is very good. Expect to pay more than a fast food hamburger chain or a sandwich shop, but at least you feel good afterwards. Ambience is better than most, value is ok. Service is typical fast food.

Panera is Panera, and the food and coffee are always good. But, this location also has a lobster roll that was great

Great food! Good value for the money. We ate lunch there every day. You can eat inside or take your food outside and sit at the tables and watch the people go by. People behind the counter very nice and pleasant.The bathrooms were ok. I would recommend to eat there.

Panera bread was within walking distance from the Hyatt Regency and a nice stop to grab a quick inexpensive breakfast. Service was fast and friendly.

Certainly a great selection for any meal. The sandwiches with a few exceptions are excellent, the salads terrific and the breads, cakes and cookies delicious though a tad expensive. Unlimited sodas and coffee. The staff is always nice. It's a chain but they do things right and they treat customers well.
