We ate breakfast here both mornings and enjoyed the food and coffee greatly. The food is always hot, fresh and tasty. There are multiple options so you don't have to have the same thing each visit. We adore Panera Bread!

Downtown Chattanooga again, and looking for breakfast. I wondered why no one was in Panera at 9 o'clock on a Saturday Morning. Well the regulars already knew what we were about to find out- that this one's not at all up to Panera's usual wonderful standards. The place is worn out.... dirty carpets, filthy rest room, and a messy food area. But we ordered anyway- with a clerk more concerned with her collegues last night adventures than the accuracy of our meal. Neither was very good. My sausage and egg never came up- and we waited way more than 10 minutes- with no appology- because our clerk did something wrong. The few other customers passed us by in a steady stream having ordered from someone who knew what to do. The manager was not managing, and the place was a wreck. If you like Panera- go to the one on Gunbarrel- near the mall- it's fantastic...... Better yet, wait in line at any of the really good breakfast shops downtown. Compared to this Panera, You'll be glad you did. Billooltewah

Was looking for a place in the riverfront area and found Panera bread. The asagio bacon egg sandwich was very good as well as the pastry selection. The layout was a bit confusing and some issues with staff but would not keep us from going back because the food was just too good. Location convenient to many of the hotels and access to aquarium is convenient.

Panera Bread locations are universally excellent, and this one is among my favorites. The location downtown is convenient to attractions and is staffed with quality employees. The food is fresh, tasty, well-prepared and a much healthier alternative to many other places. The coffee is excellent as well.

My wife and I discovered Panera years ago on a trip to Galtinburg. It was the first one we saw, and we immediately fell in love with the place...especially considering how poor each and every other dining option in Gatlinburg was! Sadly, that location is now closed, doubtlessly due to the fact that most visitors to Gatlinburg didn't appreciate it, opting rather for junk-food.
