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

The line was long but well worth the wait for good food. The workers not so friendly. No smile, and one was "huffing and puffing" about a request for a side of mayo.

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.

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

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.
