“Panera Bread: An excellent little bistro :)”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I really like this little restaurant. They have amazing food and I love that the atmosphere is so relaxed. Everyone just sits around and relaxes. In the summer, sitting on the patio in the sunshine is perfection :)

“Always a delight”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Food is fresh, hot, and healthy. Staff is very friendly. Manager (or asst. manager) stopped by to ask how the meal was.

“Quick coffee and bagel”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Within walking distance of the Marriott. Good coffee. Good breakfast sandwiches. There were fourteen in our group and we were easily accomodated.

“The very best for a price”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

I love anything they make but need a thick wallet. You won't be disappointed unless you are on a limited budget. Try it, maybe you will be like me, willing to pay for great quality, even at a price.

“Still waiting for a real bakery”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

The lines are usually long, and if its after Noon, they'll be out of some of the better breads. The bread isn't too bad, but it's still sort of a McDonalds attempt at an upscale bakery. The bagels are average (Brueggers are much better), who eats all these sweet flavored bagels? Thats not a bagel! The sandwiches are good but kinda pricey.

How I crave a decent sourdough like on the West Coast or real artisan bread. Not gonna find it here, but most people in CR have sadly probably never had anything better.
