“If you feel guilty having a delicious orange scone, try sharing it with a friend...it just FEELS less sinful.”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Met a friend for breakfast at the GREYSTONE location of Panera Bread. Its located just south of Birmingham on hwy 280 in North Shelby county.
We each had a breakfast sandwich of our own choice. There IS a reason bread is their specialty. The bread was the prize of the sandwich. Sorry i didnt take a photo. But when i go back for a sausage & guerre breakfast souffle, will send back a photo. Place was a very popular spot for locals Saturday am breakfast. Once again, if you feel guilty about choosing a menu item, just grab a friend & cup o joe & share it over some good conversation!

“Great sandwiches”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

I love to go to Panera Bread with my girl pals. My husband doesn't enjoy delicious sandwiches and soups so I either go with friends or take my daughter. My favorites are the chicken, spinach and provolone panini and the bread bowl with potato soup. Their breads are all wonderful and tasty. You can't go bad here.

“Good food!”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

What is NOT to love about Panera Bread? The food is tasty, fresh, and well plated. The seating is comfortable. The atmosphere is relaxing. The staff is friendly and helpful.

“Take your computer for the internet”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Food is fine. Sandwiches have no meat and don't ask for anything special, they are all premade. Soups good. Bagels are OK.
