I have never been more confused on pricing in my lie. Ultimately it is a con job. The board clearly says..... Half a sandwich 4.19 Then it has something where you get 2 items that looks like it costs 5.50 . My husband ordered and it rang up at about 9 dollars. Huh? They explained a hundred times and we...

Panera Bread has a drive thru window at this location. Plenty of parking, also indoor and outdoor seating available. Louis and I bought some bagels a baker's dozen for... More

Always loved Panera. We used to eat there at least 2 or 3 times a month. It seems like lately all of our favorites there have been changed or removed from the menu. The Asian Sesame chicken salad was sooo good and our favorite, but they no longer have it. Some of the sandwiches we liked are changed too. Lately... More

Glad to see that they have relocated to Chapel Hill, street level, no hill to maneuver. They added outside seating and a drive thru window. The inside is much bigger and brighter with lots of windows. Stopped in on 2 separate occasions and found that the selection of pastries, and breads and food items, salads, soups, etc is the same,...

Cool bright look, lots of sugary things, hard to change sandwich to your liking. no real kitchen or even a hood, all real food cooked off site and trucked in in plastic bags.

I don't go to Panera often because I think $9.82 for a deli sandwich is ridiculous, and I am not cheap about food. But close to ten bucks for a cold sandwich is a lot in my opinion. I went today because I was short on time and there was no one in the drive thru lane. But, I have... More

I love to go to Panera for a quick easy dinner or to sit with friends for Tea and chat. They have great bread and pastry.

Love Panera bread! I usually get macaroni and cheese with the French bread. It is so delicious and creamy. Also, their sandwiches are extremely tasty also and their desserts! Would definitely recommend! Also, they have free wifi! That's always a win!
