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

Great food terrible service and it's dirty. The staff was playing while we stood in line waiting. It was 10 o'clock on a Tuesday they weren't even busy.

My daughter enjoyed a caramel latte and we split a yummy chocolate chip cookie. The atmosphere was inviting and we like how they try to avoid so many unhealthy ingredients.

Good selection of breads, pastries, cookies, etc., but most taste like they were baked the day before. Some are quite tough and hard to cut with the tiny plastic fork provided. No typical bakery aroma in store at all. If you get there after 10 am, about half of baked products are sold out with a sign in their place... More

Typical Panera. Really like their iced mocha. Had a strawberry salad, and a turkey panini. Sandwich was a little spicy and messy to eat on the go. Gave us 1 napkin each for a drive up order. Think they could improve bread, hard to eat, tough on outside. Just personal preference.

When for a late lunch and was happy I did. I've eaten at a number of panera locations and found this like many other. Nice sandwiches, great bread, good salads. I had the Asiago steak sandwich and Caesar salad both were good, but what impressed me was the portion sizes. Much bigger than I see at other locations. Nice lunch!

They have several items to chose from for breakfast,lunch, and dinner. It's mid to pricey depending on what you order, and if you eat in or get it to go.Refills are free for dine in, and the portion size is usually big, but that's just my opinion.Their bread,bagels,and other baked goods are always fresh. The soups are good too, and... More
