The food is good, but it's expensive for soup, salad or a sandwich. The bread on the sandwiches is too thick. Some of the pastries are good. The bagels, muffins and bread are good, but they're average. If I'm gonna spend that kind of money for lunch, I'll head downtown for a place with a view and better food.

Panera Bread is a chain of restaurants serving food throughout the day. We have eaten in many from here to Maryland. The restaurant in Portsmouth is clean, friendly and a pleasant place to eat some yummy entries or take out!

OK. It's Panera. This is a 'slow food' sandwich place, one in a long list of chain restaurants. No surprises there. The food? It's always pretty good at a Panera. The breads are excellent; the soups are great; the sandwiches just fine. What makes this Panera different is Jackie. She works the counter like a TV star with her winning... More

Very expensive for mediocre food at best. Chaotic ordering in a cafeteria style setting. Tables were not that clean
