Easy walk from the Hyatt. Friendly staff and quick for a meal. Prices are thypical for Panera. A bit skimpy on the bacon on my breakfast sandwich though! :/

Panera Bread is a staple and can be counted upon to provide a fast satisfying meal. However, the raise in prices and the few new offerings has led us to try other similar places. Panera Bread is still on our short list but not our automatic "go to" destination.

Even though Panera is part of a national chain, this restaurant stands out as a good place to enjoy a light meal or simply a cup of good coffee in Newport. Right across from the Newport Tourist Center, it is good "stopping off" point before or after one of the tours that originate across the street. Baked goods, salads, sandwiches... More

We stopped in for breakfast & lunch. Very good, and friendly staff. Only issue was they took a long time to prepare your food, something as simple as a bagel with butter (which just get thrown in a bag) took forever. Problem is they were understaffed, but staff that was there was excellent.

Panera Bread in Newport is a wonderful place to eat. It provides a wonderful sit-down atmosphere to relax and have a light meal. Within walking distance to the shops, it is an ideal spot for a break.

We had breakfast here right across the street from the Hyatt. Very quick service, hot and tasty food, just like all Panera's. Everything is fresh and consistent no matter which one you go into.

Panera is always a safe bet. We prefer to try new places but will go when in a rush to find great food at a decent price.

This was our first Panera Bread to eat at. I like the sandwiches, soups and salads they were on their menu. I wish there was one closer to Tuckerton, NJ. Their coffee flavors are compatible to Wawa and Starbucks. I believe anyone who visits the restaurants would enjoy what is on the wall menu. Bruce
