We stopped in here for a quick bite to eat and enjoyed our meal. Service was quick and our food was nice and hot. The staff was friendly and professional. I recommend the steak and white cheddar panini!

I have eaten at Panera Bread in Bedford, NH many times and have never been disappointed. I love their breads, sandwiches, soups, drinks, pastries, and especially their bagels! Upon entering you must select your items and wait at the counter for them. Then find a comfy place to sit and devour all of their deliciousness! I enjoy meeting friends there... More

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.

I was in the area for a 3 day conference and stopped at this restaurant for dinner for 3 nights. The restaurant was clean, and the staff was friendly. 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
