I am a big fan of Panera and each one has a little bit different personality. This location is a direct reflection of life in The Villages. I stopped in because I was early for a meeting and found the restaurant a bee hive of activity at 9:30 am. There was a line out the door, that moved quickly. The conversation so I heard were varied, but all centering around active retirees with plenty of interests and activities. My breakfast sandwich was perfect, on an Asiago bagel, pressed so easy to eat.

We stopped here for breakfast and it was quite crowded. We had to wait in line for 20 minutes before we could get to the counter to place an order. By the time we reached the counter and ordered, it was a few minutes past the 10:30 AM stop time for breakfast. We were told breakfast could not be served...we explained that we had been in line for 20 minutes and couldn't they make an exception. We were told no and there was not even an attempt to ask the manager...Because of the attitude of the counter person, we left and we will not go back...We went to another establishment nearby and the situation was handled completely differently.....No more Panera Bread for us.....

Starbucks is a quaint place to drop in for a quick snack & coffee, or even to have a leisure coffee with friends on their outdoor tables.

Located on the town square of Lake Sumter Landing, this is a social center for Village residents every morning and into the afternoon. It offers the standard Panera fare with better service than many I have visited. Sit outside of you can and enjoy the "people watching" or listen to music from the radio station or the live entertainment that starts every evening at 5:00 PM. Grab a Bear Claw and have some fun.

The restaurant is big and comfortable and the staff is friendly but their menu is very confusing and their prices are not cheap....but you are paying for quality food.
