Not enough help at this location but the food is always good

Went there 3 times this week while vacationing in Newport. The French Toast bagel and Cinnamon Crunch bagel were our favorites.

The Tender lets you off at the Harbor. We went on an excursion and then had time for lunch before our next excursion. We didn't want to leave the Harbor area but also wanted a place to eat where we could sit down but didn't cost us a lot of money. The Panera Bread was on the corner of Americas... More

Went for some hot chocolate and pastry, service was OK. Hot chocolate warm pastry crunchy stale. In our booths and those best us there was old food splatter on walls and table. We will not be back.

They were sold out of the soup I wanted. Tried the Lobster roll (Might not be listed on menu, have to ask) but was mostly nonlobster filling and tons of bread, threw it away.

This is a good Panera store. ,hat makes it notable is that it is in a very busy and expensive area, but prices are just a bit above what you would pay at home

We stopped in this area for lunch on our Caravan Fall Foliage tour. There were a couple of tour buses there so they were very busy. This did not deter their service, though. The food was good and the service was as well.

Took over 15 mins to get food, staff actively ignored customers in line. Restaurant was clean and food when finally received was delicious.
