I love eating at Panera's due to the fact that they try to keep there food clean and on the healthier side compared to other places around them. Port Charlotte location is always busy. They have friendly staff, fast service. Love the you pick two menu. If you are looking for something on the go then this is it.

Love panera bread. They never give you a bad meal. Service is pretty quick too. They do great business but for the most part even when there are lots of people there the lines move pretty quick. I love the online order with quick pick up and they also have the kiosks there if the lines are long or your... More

We love this place! Always great food and there is now an easy order option with terminals. My only critique is that the prices seem a little too high.

I like Panera even though the food portions can be small compared to their price. I love their paninis and they always have good soups.

Staff is rude and they do not make customizing your order easy. If you are able to customize your order, they mess it up 100% of the time. Has happened to me on multiple visits. I can get average food with poor service anywhere. I have had good experience with other Panera locations and normally enjoy their food. Management should... More

Went there for lunch today. As usual a nice treat. I love a chai latte, my friend had the chai coffee. Both enjoyed the soup and salat deal. I had the chicken Caesar with kale and the broccoli cheese soup. Always a nice atmosphere, you can still have a conversation, no loud background music. People from all walks of life... More

Love this place. It is my daughters favorite. Breakfast or lunch, it is always great. I am currently in love with the steak and arugula sandwich!

You can't really go wrong with Panera. It's consistently good, relatively inexpensive, and easy to order, especially with the new kiosks. It does contain abundant amounts of salt but I'm sure that adds to the flavor.

Panera Bread does have a great bakery just as their name implies. However they also serve great sandwiches and soups and their salads are noteworthy as well. Place is always clean and tables quickly bussed and prepared for customer turnover. Friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere.

I do frequent Panera's but I don't know why. This visit I had a cup of soup & half a sandwich ($9.18) & a frozen caramel (similar to a small milk shake (4.39). The sandwich was tasteless. I do enjoy their bread & enjoy sitting outside.
