Great place for lunch. Salads are fresh and lots of variety. Go there a lot. They are always busy so you know the food must be good.

Panera offers a wide range of sandwiches, soups and salads which can be followed by one of their amazing baked goods. Their Pick2 is a great choice for lunch. Their servings are generous and never lacking in flavor.

These places are the same wherever you stop which is a good thing. This is our fist time at this location as we were on vacation. But it was just the same great taste and quality we have come to expect from Panera

I love coming here for lunch. I usually do the half sandwich and salad and take a little muffin for dessert. Love the different options of food and the prices are affordable.

Panera was our fuel each day before running off to Coachella. It was quick an easy to order with their high-tech ipad ordering things, even though the old confused people hated them. The soups and sammies were top notch quality and quantity, consistently.

If you've been to a Panera Bread, than you know what to expect. It's a definite hang out for the "mature men" who breakfast together every morning. :) The place is clean and has the usual Panera menu.

I had never tried a Panera until I moved to California. I love this place. The staff is always cheerful and helpful. You can order online before you arrive, to save some time in busy times. You can even order inside on computer kiosks to avoid any lines inside. Once you setup payment and do this a couple times, it... More

While service at Panera's is always slow, now the food has dipped. While I'm normally just a soup guy at this place I ventured out of my comfort zone and ordered a Napa Chicken Salad sandwich recently and brought it home. When I got home and opened I was stunned to see the sandwich contained about 5 small chucks of... More

Manager taking our order said the hot water was not working so coffee had to be in paper cup no mugs clean. Well, we asked, what about the bowls for the soup we just ordered? We will wash them by hand if necessary, he replied. My we should have fled. But, served sloppily with plastic ware, missing the bread and... More

I've been buying Breads and having soup and sandwiches every year for the past few years that I have been visiting LA Quinta. Excellant! Love the rye Bread.
