Stopped in for breakfast at this location. Had lots of parking space but the intersection it is located at has a lot of traffic. Food and service or what you would expect when eating at this chain...

Typical Panera Bread, offering good food, good service and a relaxed friendly environment. Would return whenever the opportunity permits.

Okay it's a Panera Bread restaurant. Still this one is convenient to the Hwy 78 and Hwy 15 in Escondido...easy on and off. Food is very good and a ton of choices. Highly recommend this one for breakfast or lunch.

This was one of the better Panera's I have been to. Food was very good, service was excellent, even at a busy lunch time. The big problem was the lack of a shade/sun screen toward the back of the restaurant, which is where we were...More
