There aren't many options for healthy clean food done quickly. Panera offers just that with a large menu. I love that I can order online and pick it up within minutes. The baked goods are delicious too

Ordered a mixed greens salad with chicken and immediately noticed the lettuce was brown and slimey, some of it looked like it also had froze at some point. The saddest part is no one seemed surprised when I complained. No apology, just a "do you want another one". I said yes if you have some new lettuce, I was told... More

Getting take out for 4 of us for a family lunch, so a relatively big order of soup, sandwiches and sides for each of us. All the soups and sandwiches were fine (and very tasty) but I guess they forgot to put the bread & chips sides into the bag. We didn't find out until we got home - I... More

The lady behind the counter took the order very pleasantly and efficiently. Ordered the steak sandwich at this location with a tea. The tea is self serve at the back... More

It would have been one thing if I didn't call the day before. My son and I were staying at the Springhill Suites and even though they offer "free breakfast", it usually isn't worth eating so we went to our old standby. I called on Sunday to check the hours and the young lady on the phone said she worked... More

We recently stopped in here out of necessity when we were making returns in the area. Both of our salads looked ok, but upon digging in, the avocado on mine was starting to brown.. I was just really disappointed to bite into that, don't think I'll be stopping at another Panera anytime soon.

I am a soup guy and eat it year round so I know I can always get a pretty decent one at Panera's. Most of their fare though is nothing special and somewhat pricey.
