We have gone to other Panera Bread locations but since we were in Newport and it was raining and it was close we ducked into Panera. It was slightly crowded and the line progressed extremely slowly NOT sure why?? We all basically had soup and a sandwich - pretty simple. 2 of us got our meals wquickly the 3rd a... More

The lobster roll was excellent. They guarantee 6oz of lobster and it comes with a free side. The roll was soft and fresh and a joy to eat.

We needed to grab food to take on the ferry ride back home and this was the perfect solution. We ordered the frontega chcken pannini and the lobster roll. The lobster roll was awesome.

This was a typical Panera and we just wanted a cup of tea and a pasty before heading out to the beach. The service was good and the food was the typical for Panera.

I came in the minute it opened and ordered $40 in breakfast sandwiches. The food was very good although it sat while I waited for 15 minutes due to a service gaffe. Instead of bringing my bag of food to the pick-up counter as discussed, they put it in a "Quick Service Area" on the other side of the store... More

Panera Bread provided my daughter's wedding group with breakfast and lunch trays on Goat Island this past weekend. They were so easy to work with, gave very helpful suggestions, and were extremely prompt to deliver all that we needed for the guys and gals. Thank you for your service and yummy treats!

WE needed to grab a quick lunch so we stopped in. It is reasonable but the food is just average. The bread was okay and fillings were average quality. Service was quick so that is good and they are close to the information center.

Had lunch. 2 combo, salad & 1/2 sandwich. Both were with chicken. Very fresh & delicious. Only problem was I actually ordered 1/2 panini. Did not send back as already had long wait due to crowds. Also we ordered tuna sandwich. Very good. We love their bread!

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
