“Just o.k.”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

I regularly visit Panera but this one left a lot to be desired. The Acai berry tea was horrible and the hibiscus wasn't much better. The tables were not clean. The person who waited on me was just ok. My soup & sandwich were just as I expected.

“Can you wipe the tables, please?”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Panera bread should be a place where you can go for breakfast, lunch or just a nice place to relax with a great cup of coffee and a bakery treat, unfortunately because of terrible training of its employees it just isn't. Certainly they can take your order and bring out your food but that is where the service stops. To find a clean table is a real adventure. It does not matter what time of day you go in the staff is unconcerned that the place is a mess. You routinely see customers looking for a cloth to wipe the tables themselves. Under the table is bread crumbs and who knows what else. The staff is snobby and arrogant. Pity West Bend has so few restaurants that this place is oft times busy.
The food is good and served in a timely manner. No complaints here. The bagels are good, but if you get them sliced beware..the bagel before yours might have been an onion bagel and the taste will be on yours too.
Shame on you West Bend...this place could be great.. But your staff stinks!

“Bagels and Bread”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

I really like the bagels and the bread.
The coffee is almost always old and bitter from sitting so long in those tureen dispenser thingees without being changed over which is sad & always disappoints me.
The little egg quiches are really good.
The half sandwich and soup is a satisfying lunch.

This place is in the same price range as Starbucks.
