The food is excellent but the portions are small and the prices are high. How much does a soup cost to make? I go occasionally and get the broccoli soup.

Everything is always fresh, the staff is top notch, and their product is solid. I enjoy coming to this location and am glad it is in Gainesville. This Panera is always clean and the food and efficiency and professionalism of the staff make me keep coming back.

I have eaten at Panera Bread often. Since I'm trying to eat healthier, they have some good choices when you are eating out. This particular location is not the place to use when they want a compliment. The atmosphere was filled with tension as the staff was confusing orders at the register. When I got served my apple was bad... More

I love bringing my laptop and enjoying a hot bowl of broccoli and cheddar cheese while I work. Food is always good and the service isn't too shabby.

Just good food at a fair price, whether it's the soup, sandwich or more. The bakery is always worth a look. Oh, if you need cozy getaway so you can work on your Tablet or Laptop, this is the place.

This place was a ghost town! Used to be crowded and had to stand in line, but no more. I wanted their "Pick Two" - a half sandwich and a half salad and with drinking only water, the bill came to over $10, so I opted for only a turkey lunchmeat sandwich and water and that came to $8 --... More

I came in tonight to get a yummy soup in a bread bowl dinner. I had a 5 minute wait to take my order and that was not due to a line it was due to a lack of staff. The young lady who took my order was very sweet & lively. The manager was standing nearby & seemed very... More
