We visited this cafe a couple of times. Once was just for coffee but the other time we had a light lunch. Service was fast and efficient and the quality of the food was very nice. Good range of options available to cater for most requirements but do remember that this is a cafe and not a full restaurant. The... More

I love Panera but my husband had never been to one. Unfortunately he'll probably never try one again after eating here. We walked in and there were a few cashiers walking back and forth they saw us and walked off. I guess the new thing is to order your food at the kiosk,but i have never done this. I started... More

We were staying in the Hilton and decided to try Panera for breakfast on the Sunday morning. Everything was good and freshly prepared. Fast, free wifi too.

Great place for lunch and only steps from the Renaissance Hotel on Commerce. Service was great, the dining area was comfortable and the food was amazing!

I love Panera and the staff here dealt with the amazing amount of people by being really quick but also really accurate. I will likely come back if given the opportunity to come back to Nashville.

Food was pretty good but the service is dire. One of these places where the staff stand around talking. Unlike the rest of Nashville lacking friendliness. So we won't be back.

Our hotel only offered a full breakfast buffet. We chose to take the shuttle downtown. This location is right by the Ryman so we stopped for coffee & a bagel 3 of our 5 days in town. The service is good & you know you are going to get fresh hot food.

Been to Panera in at least 9 different states and better than 20 restaurants, and they all are great. Atmospheres may vary and menu choices may vary but you can count on quality of product not varying, and this location was no exception. Food was excellent; staff was friendly; store was clean and welcoming; another good visit.

Great service here along with consistently fresh, tasty food. I find it very similar to other Panera Bread restaurants. This one has easy walk up service and prompts friendly employees
