Panera is reliable for a quick bite to eat. They have healthy options which makes it easy to order food for a special diet.

A great location, but as a result it suffers from too many customers. The fair is standard Panera's, but the lines are generally long, especially during July 4th week. We stopped in there twice this trip and went through everything from cold coffee, to coffee loaded with grounds and waits to get any at all. That said, even when lines... More

A nice and clean franchise store in the heart of the waterfront area. Service was good as was the food. Looks like an end of te day hangout for local teenagers that were well behaved.

I have been to many Paneras in my day, but this one is definitely the worst. It all started with the taking of the orders. Okay, they open the line in the bakery so you can't see the menu. Caused a lot of confusion among the customers about who was in line and the workers said nothing. Then went to... More

Visited Pancras Bread for breakfast and lunch whilst in California. Yummy...really good choice of food which was delicious. The kids were delighted with their grilled cheeses and I loved the fact that they offered fruit as an accompaniment 👍 Breakfast oats were just as I like them...delicious...will definitely go back the next time we visit!

My wife ordered the Chicken Cobb Green Goddess salad. It came out real quick. Unfortunately for my wife there was not one morsel of chicken. When I brought it back to where I picked it up, I explained there was no chicken. The manager looked me in the eye and asked the workers if the Chicken Cobb should have chicken?... More

Picked up a sandwich and salad to share on a picnic. The new citrus salad was low in calories and high in flavor. There were some language barriers so be prepared to speak slowly and clearly.

Have never been to such a cute Panera bread. They have a lot of outdoor seating and the Panera bread itself is pretty big and super cute. It's in an outdoor mall type of thing. Would definitely recommend. Love their Mac and cheese, but I recently tried their bacon turkey sandwich, it was pretty good

Wonderful, friendly staff on all the visits we had to this property during our stay in Newport. We stayed at the Hyatt Regency but the Marriott is directly across the street.
