I like Panera for a quick sandwich. I had the occasion to visit the Apopka Panera 3 times over the past month and a half. Each time, I ordered the Napa Almond Chicken Sandwich (full sandwich) and a green tea. The first time I got what I ordered but most of the chicken salad was on one half the sandwich and the other half was pretty bare. The second and third time I received 2 half sandwiches wrapped individually and there may have been one bite of chicken salad per half - it was all bread! EPIC DISAPPOINTMENT! I get that most people probably order the 'You pick 2' leaving a half sandwich behind, but I felt like I was getting leftovers of the worst kind. You're not saving any money here because, Panera Apopka, you just lost my business. Clean up your act and start caring about your customers!

The food, of course, is Panera, and good. My normal Panera stop, enroute to work is Longwood, but the Apopka location is more convenient, so on three occasions, within past month, I've chosen Apopka Panera. Three strikes, they're out.

Read my other reviews. I like to write positives. My mind thinks in a positive mode.

Yesterday, however, was the straw that broke the camel's back for Apopka Panera. I was fourth in line, and there was one person at the register and no one helping her with getting the food out of the cases, etc. First person in line wanted a dozen bagels, all sliced, of differing flavors. Other staff walk by, look at the line, look at the one person struggling with slicing bagels AND running the register, and turn around and walk the other way.

This is 180 degrees different than the service I receive, and observe, at Longwood Panera.

Apopka Panera, I won't be back. You lost a two-three times per week customer.

We ate lunch and even though it was busy we got our food pretty quick. Nice outside area if you have kids or dog for dining.
Great soup and sandwich. I recommend.

My friends and I meet at Panera Bread every Sunday. This has been going on for over 10 years now. Most days are a quiet relaxation while eating great tasting and healthy breakfast with soothing Classical music in the background.
