My salad was clean and fresh, just like I ordered it and the service was so fast. Just amazing how a great meal is served so efficiently and fast. After lunch we came back and order some bread and pastries to go. I will always buy my bread at Panera! The staff was friendly also and had great smiles on... More

Very good homemade breads and rolls. They also have homemade soups and sandwiches. It is worth trying.

Panera is one of my favorite food stops. They have amazing service and if anything is wrong with your order they will replace it for free. They have amazing food and pastries. So amazing I cant even say how amazing it is. Get a hot chocolate and they top it with whipped cream, caramel and chocolate sauce and bits of... More

This place never disappoints. Very quick service. Good good. Smiling and friendly staff. Good parking. This is one of the better branches in the Panera chain. The only drawback is that all Panera restaurants are a bit over-priced.

I usually LOVE Panera, but this location is mediocre. It has a great atmosphere but the products don't seem to be on par with other Panera restaurants. Breads always seem really dry and the sandwiches unappealing.

Living in Utah, I have been intrigued by Panera Bread ads on TV. They do not exaggerate. My sausage and egg panini was one of the best chain restaurant breakfasts I have ever enjoyed. For my money, you cannot go wrong here.

I do not care for their food. The bread is dry and it ruins an otherwise good sandwich. They seem snobby about the food and the prices are very high. No thanks.

I've been to a few of the Panera Bread locations. The one in Vegas has some major space, but this one in Santa Rosa has "Comfort". And their bakery items are some of the best I've had. They offer free Wifi and it's reliable. Outdoor seating when the weather permits. Good location, lots of parking available thanks to the small... More

Like the previous review said, they are still very new and are working some things out as of now. Their restaurant itself looks great, really a nice place to take the family. The food is above average as well - they have an assortment of soups, paninis, bagels, and desserts. I've had the creamy tomato soup, black bean soup, and... More
