They were out of Avocado so my mother requested bacon to be substituted in her sandwich(server didn't offer but complied). He did give us free beverages for the inconvenience. Tonight is our 2nd visit...out of Avocado again! The server stated that they 'are always out... More

While I love the food at Panera, the Rapid-Pick Service at the Rockville Center, NY Panera, has failed me twice. Yesterday I placed an order at noon for a 4 pm pick-up.

RVC has more restaurants to choose from than most south west Nassau towns, but for a quick lunch spot with good food, Panera fit the bill. Plenty of seating choices. Midday during the week had a steady flow of customers but wasn't crowded. Very delicious steak panini!

My son loves their bagels, and I love... More

I've never stepped food in this place when it wasn't crazy busy. The food here is good, and it comes out quick. I don't go often but I've never been diaspore when I have gone.
