A good fast place for lunch or taking a dozen bagels to your work place. Sandwiches are always fresh and a bowl of soup always good on a cold day.

My wife and I eat at various Panera restaurants when we are on the road - and this one is a frequent stop when visiting family in the area. The menu is extensive, the food is always fresh and well prepared and the service reasonably quick given the popularity. We primarily stop by to take food back to the family... More

short story and to the point, I was sick with head cold sniffles and didn't want to cook I live near by, so I went to Panera and got the Chicken soup and 1/2 sandwich OMG took it home and it made feel so much better.

Enjoy eating here before going to the show. We order the Tomato/Chicken Noodle/Baked Potato soups (depending on the weather) and Italian Combo Sandwiches with chips. They have nice booths and tables to select from and eat your meal here. Many people take advantage of the free WiFi. Usually order the Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake to go.

Had my favorite lunch...tomato basil soup and a small Greek salad. The service was prompt and efficient, they left off the peppers and onions as requested and my lunch was everything I expected it to be. It is so nice to see consistency from location to location.

I moved away from the Bay Area 7 years ago, but on a recent visit had a light meal at Panera Bread. I had the 1/2 sandwich and soup. Both were very good, but I must agree with some other reviewers that the prices are a bit high for the area. However it's nice to know some more upscale places... More
