We ordered takeout for the team (7 of us) yesterday while on a business trip in Madison. Order was ready when we arrived to pick it up, all ordered were correct and exactly what you'd expect from Panera (love Panera).

I was recently in the Madison area for a few days to see some friends and have a bit of a getaway, and I ate 2 different meals at this Panera location on E. Springs Dr. I was here for lunch on the Thursday I was in the area, as well as dinner on the Saturday. This Panera was very... More

This place gets hectic around noon, but it has helped that you can now use a kiosk to order and pay, if you want, to speed things up. Everyone was friendly, but it was hard to find even a spot for two during the rush. Food was great though, and bagels and cream cheese for home are always a must... More

The quality of our food was fair, but I feel the price was a little high for what we got-this is not a place you get served. Good for healthy options, not so much if you are looking for a dining experience.

Traveling for work and stopped for supper to go. Listening to others in line, 5 p.m., the front end was being remodeled. I didny even notice. The manager checked me out and got my pick 2 ordered placed with accuracy. Waited about 5 min and got my food! I just love the cobb salad with avocado!!! Delish!!

I was recently back at this Panera Bread location for dinner on a Saturday night on a return trip from WI Dells. A few years back I was here and did not have a real positive experience but I decided to try it again. This visit was much better! The employees were all friendly and helpful. I ordered the you-pick-2... More

I walk in to get a carry out order and I'm greeted warmly by the cashier. I order soup and a lemonade. He kindly says to Lindsey he needs a lemonade, she yells at him, "what!" Lindsey was responsible for getting specialty drinks. In the middle of filling my lemonade, Lindsey was beckoned again by a guy in a pick... More

Whenever I am on business travel, I gravitate towards finding the nearest Panera Bread outlet. I know what to expect and I always try something new. This time, I had chicken barbecue salad: fresh, tasty and filling. There were pockets of a lineup but the service was quick and friendly. So far, I have enjoyed my lunch break,

One would think that if it's busy at lunch then the soup should be hot. But it bordered on lukewarm which was a big disappointment. I had to go back up to the already busy counter and ask for it to be warmed up. Of course, he must have set the micro to extremely piping hot and barely tolerable to... More

Wanted something instead of a burger and fries so made a quick stop on our way through Madison. I am giving a five out of five because of the great service given to us at the counter by a young man who did a great job. There was a woman in front of us who had a ton of questions... More
