“Excellent sandwhich and salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

We are from Florida and were visiting family in Newport News. We were glad to find a Panera Bread for lunch. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and we really enjoyed eating at a restaurant we know from back home. It was very crowded and busy the day we ate lunch. But the service was very good and our food was prepared correctly. Glad we stopped at this location!

“Good Breakfast Spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

We stopped here for breakfast on our way through Newport News. It was challenging to get to because our GPS kept getting confused as to our location. After driving in circles for a bit, we happily located the Panera Bread farther down the road than where the GPS was leading.

If you can muddle through a confused GPS system and locate this Panera, you will be pleased. The dining room is clean, has clean restrooms and most importantly serves a quick, yummy breakfast!

“Greenbrier and JANAF Locations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Parking, ingress and egress, is a little tight at the JANAF location, however, both Greenbrier and JANAF get the order right and out to you quickly and it tastes great. I especially like the breakfast soufle, soup bowls and the turkey/avocado sandwiches.
