Panera is the restaurant on which we depend on those occasions when we don't feel like cooking and we want a tasty, reasonably-priced and relatively healthful meal. So we patronize this branch a couple of times a month, on average. We especially like their Turkey Bravo and Steak & Cheddar sandwiches, but our mainstay is the Strawberry Poppy-seed Chicken Salad...

You know what you'll be getting at this chain. The bread is baked fresh. Their website states there are "no artificial preservatives, sweeteners, flavors and no colors from artificial sources." I like the You Pick Two where you can combine any two half portions of their salads, sandwiches, soups, mac & cheese, or flatbreads. I also like being able to... More

In the centre of Lexington, MA, this restaurant is a very good place to have lunch or a light dinner. Also , behind this restaurant is sufficient parking available.

This is a great place to enjoy a lunch. The food was all very fresh, and was prepared in minimum time.

Had a half a ham and cheese sandwich and 1/2 Caesar salad. Very nicely prepared and very fresh. A good place to grab a meal when you're on the go. The soups looked good, too but wasn't hungry enough for more.

On route to Lexington Green, stopped here for breakfast, very tasty egg bacon and cheese sandwich and gorgeous cinnamon pastry plus a great breakfast tea. Definitely worth a stop for breakfast if in the Lexington area!

We ate breakfast here several times during our stay in Lexington. Operation is efficient and quality high, as it is in most Paaneras we've visited. Doesn't seem overly crowded for either breakfast or lunch.

Consistently good Standard for a chain restaurant. I love the soups and salads (ask for the dressing on the side to adjust to your liking), a relatively healthy meal choice.
