Good coffee...average service

I have been to many Panera Breads in the US. This one ranks a lot lower than most. The service is okay - they seem disorganized and a couple were not very friendly. The food was good and the coffee was excellent. An easy walk from where we were staying so we went there often.

Located across from the visitor center the best thing is their location... The food and service were standard Panera - good but nothing to write home about.

Stopped by Panera Bread for a light lunch and was happy with a cup of turkey chili. Service was quick and the staff was very helpful.

The same as all of the other Panera Bread's - it was a little chaotic with service, perhaps new help being trained. The food and coffee were as expected.

There are two fruited tea served here. Best to pretend they don't exist as the flavoring is so slight it is almost impossible to taste,. Tried both the mango and the hibiscus, pretty tasteless. Else service was good and the food served was what one expects at Panera,.

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.

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
