“Newly remodeled but same, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

The restaurant has been newly refurbished & that's where the problem lies. The counter to pick up your food is too close to the beverage dispensing area which also includes the cups, straws, butter, margarine, etc. Too many people are constantly trying to access this area - making it hard for those who have just picked up their trays of food to pass through. On our last visit 3 children were playing in the area while mom was getting beverages. Patrons had to repeatedly ask the kids to move so they could take their trays to their tables. The food is still wonderful & worth the visit. The new décor is upbeat & pleasing, making for more comfortable for seating.

“Less bread, more fillings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I had takeout yesterday. If you love bread this is for you! Tasty and lots of bread on my sandwich! Me, I'd have preferred to had a little more turkey in mine. Skimpy meat probabaly helps build profits not customer satisfaction

“All Paneras not created equal..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

This location runs out of bread bowls like clockwork after 530pm. Lunch is chaos, no space inside and parking nightmare. I drive the extra 15 mins to get what I want from Panera at the Greenfield location.

“love Panera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We stopped a number of times during our stay in the Brookfield area at Panera's. The food and customer service is outstanding. The restaurant and bathrooms are nice and clean.

“Good Food, Average Value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

This was a typical Panera Bread. Same setup and layout. Nothing at all unusual about it. Food was fine--exactly what we expected. Bathrooms were clean.
