I find Panera an average place. Some of the options are good, but I feel they are over priced and a good value. There bread is always fresh and good. Not really enamored with the rest.

They messed up the order and put a full salad on there that I didn't order. I didn't catch when i paid for it as I thought I was paying for another daughter's order, who I found out later that she paid for her own.

Myself, wife and daughter and grand daughter stopped for dinner after a soccer tournament. We all agreed the food and service were good. Panera is also very good about providing freebies for their loyalty members.

Quick trip, bread was good. Not sure it's the best value. Better value at the Subway. Clean and cozy, decent for a brief business meeting.

The Kent Station Panera is the place to get tasty soups as well as sandwiches - and the mac 'n cheese is fabulous. Try it with a cup of chicken noodle soup for a warming lunch! I've never had a Panera soup I didn't like, from the tomato soup to the broccoli-cheddar, but the chicken noodle is my new favorite.... More

If you like hearty sandwiches and soups, come here. Pros 1. Variety of baked goods to choose from 2. I like their tomato soup. 3. Booth style seating Cons 1. The lines, it's unavoidable sometimes. 2. Spendy but delicious
