We were there mid-morning, and my bagel wasn't very fresh. I thought it should have been because it wasn't that late in the day. Unless you ask them to do it, they won't put the condiments like butter on the bagel. When it gets crowed, which often happens on a busy summer weekend, the lines and wait can be long.

We both had mediteranean veggie sandwichs. Always enjoy it and this location was no exception. Quick service and lots of indoor-outdoor seating.

We can always depend on Panera Bread. A familiar menu, and reasonable prices. It's nice to find a familiar place when traveling. We like Panera Bread!

One person in front of me, the person at the register couldn't find their salad on the computer finally she asked someone who found it immediately, second item she couldn't find either until I stepped forward to tell her it was a flatbread. Worried that she would get my order wrong, a classic caesar I repeated it back to her,... More

If you're looking for a quick bite to eat for breakfast or lunch, Panera is a good spot. The location, right on America's Cup Blvd, is convenient. This location was clean, the staff was pleasant and if you are a Panera fan, it was very good as their units go. Prices were in line with other units, as were portions.

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.

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.
