Consistency across panera is a good thing. This is just as good as every other panera. The Lobster roll and clam chowder were pretty good and not something offered at panera in the south. Did not realize the Lobster roll would come as a full prion though so a bit more for lunch than I planned.

This is my favorite place to grab a quick meal. . . I love the fact that the corn chowder has been back for the summer. I also love the new watermelon salad. . . However two big dissapointments for me. . . 1. Bring back the plain shortbread cookie. 2. The watermelon salad was skimpy on watermelon at my... More

Love that you can order online for "speedy pickup"! You can pay online, so when you get there, you just look for the to go counter, find your name, and take your bag! Great for lunch hours where you don't have time to stand in line.

There were plenty of options on the menu to choose from and as always the food was excellent. Free wifi is offered at this restaurant. I will be definitely back the... More

Stopped in for lunch, ordered the pick 2. Went to the men's room to wash up before lunch and to my dismay the floor was littered with previously used paper towels. When my order was ready I picked it up and carried it to my table. I was stunned to see the food particles stuck to the outside and inside... More

I had never been to a Panera Bread before, and I was excited to try this out after work a few weeks ago. I had gotten the French Onion Soup with half a Roasted Turkey & Caramelized Kale Panini. It was a fantastic combo that was full of flavor and was just enough food to stay full for the evening.... More

This is a place where you can get muffins, danish pastry, lattes, soups and sandwiches. Food is excellent, but price is high for a sandwich shop. For the price, you can go to an upscale place and get pretty much the same thing, but better.

The sandwiches, break, pasty and drinks are good, but the parking is terrible and can be a major challenge on ANY day.

Panera is one place I can take my 9 year old granddaughters and know they are getting a fresh, healthy lunch. They both love soup/one the tomato and one the chicken noodle. I almost always have the tomato and have never been disappointed. A+ for consistency, Bedford Panera.

Stopped here for lunch on way to a wake in Manchester. Just a short distance from I-293 and 101. Place was hopping a lunch time and able to order quickly but took almost 10 minutes to get food. Lot's of call ahead (to go) orders it seemed. Soup was hot as always, Autumn Squash is so good. Sandwiches made exacly... More
