“Just what it should be”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

This chain doesn't fail you. Just don't plan on getting in and out in an hour during lunchtime. This location gets packed quickly and has a very small parking lot.

“Cooks and cleanliness needs improvement”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

I like the Panera menu and food, but the management and staff training of this branch needs to be improved. Three times now I have either been given the incorrect sandwich or a salad in which a key ingredient, such as chicken, has been omitted. If you order take out make sure you check your order before you leave with it! At dinner time the tables and floors are very dirty. The staff needs to at least wipe the tables down during the day.

“Clean and affordable”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

I'm a Panera Bread fan and this one did not dissappoint. The Newton locaton was alittle hard to find because my GPS did not pick up the correct address. However, once inside, the staff was very friendly and customer service oriented.

“stop here often for baked good”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

i am a sucker for the french toast and cinnamon crunch bagels. also stop for bread for dinner a few times a week. good, predictable quality. wait staff always pleasant (even when there is a crowd). love the fact that panera has "pay what you can" restaurants. (no prices on the menu...you really just pay what you can.) they are planning to open one in downtown boston. does food taste better when you like the philosophy of the company???
