“Poor experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We frequent Panera Bread on a weekly basis. This has to be one of the worst I've ever visited. The staff was rude and dismissive. Their toaster was broken so they nuked my bagel. When I asked for a new one without it being heated up, the kid behind the counter rolled his eyes at me, grabbed a new one and shoved it at me without a word.

Never again - we will be looking for Dunkin going forward. Not to mention, it was $16 for a sandwich, non toasted bagel, a coffee that was over an hour old and a sour iced coffee.

“Good and healthier fast food restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Panera is the place to go if you prefer some fast food, that is not Burger King or McDonalds. I go often to panera for their pick 2. Salads are good and soup are good. My fiance likes their Chicken Fontega. Its very inexpensive, as well.

I don't know what they do to the mac and cheese here but it's the BEST i've ever had! The bread is also very fresh and amazing!

“Close to Basking Ridge Marriott”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Easy access to hotel. Went at 10:30 am on a Friday morning. Between the breakfast and lunch rush. Service was quick and restaurant was clean. By the time were ready to leave at 11:15 the lunch rush was starting and the line was 7-8 deep. Bakery items enjoyed by the kids and turkey fuji apple salad is awesome!!
