Always greeted nicely and a delicious meal or snack awaiting you. Prices are moderate, but for quality food.

Tonight I went to Panera to have the chicken tortilla bowl. I asked for a sprouted grain roll but they were out. The cashier kindly gave be a sprouted flat bread instead at no charge. The soup had a nice flavor but extremely salty. I visit Panera a couple times a month and rarely am I disappointed.

Love the new self ordering kiosks! Way to go Panera! All fast food restaurants should have them. Their salads have improved a lot and their soups & sandwiches are consistently good. Happy to have the specials by season.

Love to pop in for a quick lunch while out shopping or errands. I always have food served fast and it's good quality. Mostly I get the Broccoli soup.. love it! The staff is friendly, plus use my rewards card to get discounts or specials. I'm not to crazy about the baked goods, sometimes dry, so I stay away from... More

I enjoy going to Panera for any meal of the day. Breakfast is no exception. Some of my favorites are the breakfast steak sandwich and spinach/artichoke soufflés (when available) Got a sweet tooth? Have their Cinnamon crunch bagel with hazelnut cream cheese. They'll even slice and toast it for you if you ask!

Let me begin by saying I LOVE Panera Bread restaurants and am part of their rewards program. What I did not expect was to order a ceasar salad with STALE croutons.

This was our first visit and the store was very busy. The cashier did an excellent job of explaining the ordering process and covered the food choices very well. We waited quite a while for the food to be served. We felt the portions were on the small side for the price and the food was average at best.

Expensive for what you get. I had the flat bread chicken with a salad. 4 thin pieces of chicken. My wife had a large salad, no drinks. 19$ later. Not worth it
