What can we say about Panera's? Everything is good; desserts sinful; service is fast; very clean for the amount of traffic

“Consistently good quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

With two locations in The Villages, I have found Panera to be a really nice place to stop occasionally. I don't know how they could improve. A comfortable, casual, good place to stop, knowing the food will always be top-notch.

“Not That Great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

Great location at Sumter Landing, coffee and snacks but that is about it, then toss in no idea where to order, no lines, just rush the cash registers and hope you get your order in. Sadly this location use to have a quaint down home restaraunt with lots of charm, now we have a caffeteria style place with no charm. Lots of folks go here since we have lots of folks in The Villages and very few places for coffee and snacks.

“Lake Griffin Camping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

Food good. I had Black Bean soup and it was outstanding. The wife had the turkey chille and she liked it very much. Only bad thing was they were out of the bread bowls. That is like Taco Bell being out of taco shells. Go figure

“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

While visiting friends at the villages they took us to this restuarant at Sumter landing,only wished I'd been there sooner. The food was absolutely scrumptious. We had went for lunch and had soup and sandwich consisting of cream of broccoli soup that was to die for and a nice ham and cheese sandwich. Prices were very reasonable too. The staff were very nice.would certainly recommend and will be trying again on return trip to Orlando in May.
