This place is very popular and it’s usually busy. We try to go in off hours to avoid the parking hassle and the long lines, lately it seems there isn’t a time when this place isn’t jammed. Today was the worst. There was no parking available in the first two lots so, we had to park in the third parking area. It was pretty full also. The line for the food was long but, there were three cashiers taking orders so, everything moved along. There was a bit of a wait for the salads but there was no place to sit inside or outside. We finally snagged a counter seat near the coffee dispensers. The salads were good but certainly not worth having to put up with crowded seating. I noticed several tables being used by a lone person with an iPad. They weren’t eating or drinking. Basically using the tables for hours like in Starbucks. That’s OK but, it seems to be happening more and more. I think the take away is put up with that or go someplace else.

There was no wait to place our order. Our pager didn't work, so the staff at pickup apologized and offered to reheat the food. Food was good and our order was correct. I did not use the free wifi. The toilets were clean and accessible. Still wishing they'd bring back their black bean soup! I like that calories are posted clearly upon ordering. I love the fireplace in the dining area, visible from both dining areas. Parking was easy and close. The restaurant was safe and clean.

We have been to this Panera Bread several times. The food is very good. The restaurant is exceptionally clean considering the amount of traffic that goes through every day. The employees are pleasant and helpful. But, it seems that something is amiss in the kitchen. This is the third time that we received the wrong order. So, when we brought it to their attention the problem was solved. I realize that this location is very busy. They do have quite a system in place to insure that everything runs smoothly. Apparently they are still working out glitches. If we have gotten the wrong order then I'm guessing some others did also. A minor complaint but, it keeps happening.

Panera in Milford moved to their own free standing building leaving the mall. Wow new digs and a healthy menu. Not to mention a quick drive-thru. The green goddess chicken salad is fantastic. Totally worth the trip, great staff healthy fresh food you can't ask for more in a town full of terrible fast food joints.

We have been to this newish Panera several times. It's convenient when we are out running errands. We've had mixed results with the food. The salads are always solid. The soups vary considerably but, they all have considerable amounts of saltiness. Especially the French Onion. The sandwiches are good. Some seem to have more filling than others. Waitstaff is friendly and helpful. Prices are average. Wait times are long even when not busy. The drinks are self serve. Finding a place to sit can be problematic. People bring iPads and lap tops to conduct business or for amusement. You have to be quick to snag a seat. It can be very much like eating in a college cafeteria.
