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

As frequent visitors to the Rhyman and other venues downtown we often find ourselves downtown needing to get a quick bite before the concert starts. Panera's always has something seasonal and lite to offer, the brownies and cookies, scones and breads notwithstanding. The Commerce street store answers the call.

We went here for lunch break during a convention. The line was short, but moved super slow. I'm not sure what the issue was. I'm glad I knew what I wanted because the cashier didn't seem to know much about what I was ordering. Anyway, it was delicious as most other Paneras!

We ate there several times during our recent stay. I enjoyed the egg , bacon and cheese breakfast sandwich and the Steel Cut Oatmeal with strawberries and pecans. The coffee was very favourful and fresh.

We just had a very nice lunch at this Panera. It was clean and the food was good and reasonable. I didn't like that it didn't have fountain drinks and you needed a code to unlock the bathroom but I guess in a big city like DC that can't be avoided.

I ordered from the kiosk and was able to customize by breakfast sandwich with ease. It was nice to chose to eat inside or outdoors.

This is your normal Panera Bread restaurant. It has some nice outdoor seating so you can take in the sounds of downtown Orlando.

We had lunch at this Panera Bread twice during our stay. We don't recall noticing anything out of the ordinary on the first visit. On 5/29/16 after we ordered we went to sit down and noticed that there was trash on the floor in several areas and dirty dishes on some of the tables. The restaurant was almost empty and... More
