Pastries a bit hard and crusty; did not seem fresh. Difficult to cut with the small plastic knife & fork. Also, music not very pleasing. Soup and sandwich meal very pleasing.

Stopped to grab a quick bite on our way thru Kentucky to Tennessee. This was my very first visit to a Panera Bread. My travel companions have been before to a location in New York State , and recommended stopping here. Certainly very, very good. The squash soup was the best squash soup I have ever had!

Visited Sept 2 2016. As always (at least in my experience) the food has great. Normally order the pick two. It is just enough to fill me up. The personnel are friendly and professional. I totally recommend this place to all my friends. You cannot go wrong. One of the better places to eat in Elizabethtown.

I LOVE the pick 2 combo of the chicken salad sandwich and broccoli cheddar soup! Both are delicious and go well together. This has become my go-to meal at Panera! As usual, love the service and professionalism of the staff.

I have tried almost all of the sandwiches and they are delicious. Salads and soups are good as well. I have tried some of the desserts and they were tasty. Good food and friendly service. Clean location.

I patronize this restaurant infrequently. Would go more often except for the music. It's too loud and not well chosen. It seems the restaurant uses the music to keep customers from sitting too long reading or accessing their computers. It has that effect on me. Food and service are good but not good enough to tolerate the music.

On a business trip in Elizabethtown I was looking for a good healthy lunch and I found it in Panera Bread. The place is in front of the local mall. The menu was similar to all the Panera restaurants and the place was clean with good friendly service. I had a salad and sandwich combo and it was all great.... More

I spend most of my time in Panera... They always have good food options and free wifi! The staff here is pretty exceptional so I keep coming back.
