“Good all over the country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I have eaten at Panera Bread from coast to coast - Boston,
Ann Arbor, and here. I am always assured of quick and friendly service and can usually take home from the fresh bakery as well.

“Catchin' up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This is my favorite spot in West Olympia to hang out for a morning and get caught up with things. Up until lunchtime, which is often very busy, it's the perfect spot to grab a hot drink and a tasty bagel or cookie, find a table, connect to free wireless internet, and delve into my "to do" list. There's lots of space, the atmosphere is usually pleasant without annoying distractions, and there is always more coffee or hot water for a refill. Though the food isn't super cheap, it's good. I love this spot!

“GREAT SELECTION!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I really enjoy this little spot. Food is always good and is a goal after a morning walk in the mall. They have a wonderful breakfast power sandwich which is not many calories and good coffee! Great place for lunch.

“TASTY SANDWICHES & GREEN TEA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

Don't expect a restaurant, but more of a fast food without the drive-in. That aside, they do have good food and fresh ingredients. The price seemed a little high, but the quality made up for the price.
I ordered a vegetarian sandwich on whole grain and it was very good and satisfying. Along with the grub i ordered a green tea and it was about the best green tea I have ever had.
I would choose Panera Bread over a Denny's or Black Bear Diner anytime I have the option.
The service is a little more than a McDonald's cashier.
I recommend Panera Bread for a quick and satisfying lunch.
