I placed a large order for sandwiches and salads for work off the Panera website for pickup at 0630. The manager called me back to inform me they cannot get it ready until 0700. (The general website does not seem to be in sync with...the individual restaurants). Rather than cancel the order, manager Angie called her employees to see if they can come in early to have the order ready. They had it ready to go early in the morning so my colleague could pick it up on his way to work and not arrive late. Thank you so much, Janesville team, for going above and beyond!!More

The Panera Bread in Janesville Wisconsin is a great location for meeting friends and family for breakfast. They have tasty breakfast sandwiches and great coffee to start your day.

My friend and I stopped for lunch today, on my recommendation. Panera has always been my go to for a quick, fresh, delicious meal. Today we each had salads. The tomatoes were old, the greens mostly chard, which was tough. The bread was as fresh...and good as usual. Very sorry to have this experience. I know my friend won’t be back. I am visiting from Michigan, where I have never had a bad meal at Panera.More

We each purchased our favorite bagels. Not only were they fresh and tasty, the extras we defrosted and ate later were fabulous as well.

We wanted to catch a late dinner bite - nothing too heavy. The grilled cheese and 1/2 order of Thai Chicken Salad, as well as the Summer Corn Chowder and Broccoli Cheddar soup, were tasty. But, $31+ plus tip and tax for 3 is pricey...for what we got, and we still had to bus and sort our own dishes/silverware.More

Ordered soup and bread and brought us a soup bowl which they corrected right away (too bad they threw out the soup bowl meals). I wish the soup was hotter but maybe some people don't like HOT soup.

Great tasting breads and main entree of choices. Served with soup of choice. Great place to come in and relax and enjoy. Can be a bit pricy, but different and enjoysble. Very clean and well kept

With restaurants constantly closing these days I really don't know how this one stays in business. They are so over priced for what you get. Because of the price I very seldom go but I went today because I wanted to try their fall Harvest...Squash soup. I got the pick 2 with the soup & the Asian salad. Keep in mind these are 1/2 the size of the regular full-size of each. When I went to pick my plate up the salad was only 1/2 full. I asked if it should be full. She said they put "one scoop" in them. I said "So, you're basically telling me I am paying $13 for my lunch & only get 1/4 of a salad? !!!" She did put some more in it but seriously you should not even have to ask. Everybody else is getting ripped off. I also do not eat chicken so do not have it put on. I ask if it is cheaper with no meat. Nope. They take your $ for it whether they give it to you or not. Hardly fair. Got an apple sliced. Was brown in the center. Must have been sitting out awhile. Why they would even serve that is beyond me. Also do not like how they expect you to not only clear your own table, but sort your garbage & plates. Nope ~ your job! Especially at these prices. As I said ~ it is not worth the money here & with these issues I will not be going back. There are many other places to choose from where you get good food for a value. On a sidenote: The cashiers are not very friendly. And when you go to pay the kiosk asks if you want to leave a tip. Really? For standing there taking my order? Let's see...NO!More

The manager was very friendly and offered great menu advice. Staff was friendly, food was good, and place was clean. Several booth seats needed repair which surprised me for the time in which it has been open. Love the Plum Ginger Hibiscus iced tea!

Bagels and pastry were very good. No greetings when ordering and no smile or thank you at all. If you don't like your job move on.
