For the sake of distinguishing chains, I will review my experience in the restaurant. All staff members, from cashiers to managers, were very friendly and compliant with off-the-recipe requests, not to mention effective at peak hours. My sandwich was delicious, all ingredients being fresh and cooked properly. Tables and bathrooms were maintained well. Yep. Good.

My wife and I enjoy Panera Bread it's such a clean quiet atmosphere that serves good food. You can tell it's a favorite among the locals who either want to read and do computer work or visit with friends because the restaurant makes it an ideal place for these type activities. Besides those perks they serve delicious wholesome food and... More

This is your typical Panera - good food, decent atmosphere, and nice spots for settling in with your lap-top to study alone or work with a team.

In a place like Auburn where it is a bit hard to find healthy restaurant food at a reasonable price, presence of a national chain like Panera is indeed a blessing. You will have lot of choices (even if you are vegetarian). This one can be a bit crowded especially when students are in town. But they are pretty fast.... More

Recently visited on a few occasions for take-out breakfast sandwiches. Very nice menu to choose from. Great pastry & breads baked right on the premises.Tasty & most times fresh.

I love Panera Bread for lunch, especially on the weekends. My husband and I both love the soup and sandwich combos. The coffee is great too!

Standard Panera. Veggie options available. Popular things sell out quickly, and some things (as we were told at 11 AM) are ONLY available for breakfast, and can't be made or reheated for lunch. Pity. Very busy, so wait time to order, to get order and to find a table can turn this into a longer than expected outing.

We have been at Panera Bread many times for both breakfast and lunch. I have found the bearclaws to be outstanding with a cup of their hot fresh coffee. And, there are many types of coffee, but I always get the Arabica. Very Good.

We were in town for graduation, and with all the running around it was nice to order food and have it ready when we arrived.

I used to just visit Panera for the breakfast sandwiches...until I tried their macaroni and cheese. OMG, the sauce is rich and cheesy, not too salty either. I've never been impressed with restaurant Mac & cheese until I tried this. Panera, don't change this recipe ever! It's a winner.
