Panera has so many delicious choices of soups, salads and sandwiches. You can make many trips and keep trying new tasty flavors. Today was Summer Corn Chowder and Spicy Thai Chicken salad. The Pick 2 option is great as half sizes are fully satisfying. Definitely recommend.

Went to Panera in Garden City on Tuesday. Had broccoli and cheddar soup in a bread bowl. I also ordered bagels from their bakery. On Tuesdays when you buy a dozen bagels, you get a bakers doz. My friend had salad with chicken.

I have never been more confused on pricing in my lie. Ultimately it is a con job. The board clearly says..... Half a sandwich 4.19 Then it has something where you get 2 items that looks like it costs 5.50 . My husband ordered and it rang up at about 9 dollars. Huh? They explained a hundred times and we...

Always loved Panera. We used to eat there at least 2 or 3 times a month. It seems like lately all of our favorites there have been changed or removed from the menu. The Asian Sesame chicken salad was sooo good and our favorite, but they no longer have it. Some of the sandwiches we liked are changed too. Lately... More

Glad to see that they have relocated to Chapel Hill, street level, no hill to maneuver. They added outside seating and a drive thru window. The inside is much bigger and brighter with lots of windows. Stopped in on 2 separate occasions and found that the selection of pastries, and breads and food items, salads, soups, etc is the same,...

Cool bright look, lots of sugary things, hard to change sandwich to your liking. no real kitchen or even a hood, all real food cooked off site and trucked in in plastic bags.

I don't go to Panera often because I think $9.82 for a deli sandwich is ridiculous, and I am not cheap about food. But close to ten bucks for a cold sandwich is a lot in my opinion. I went today because I was short on time and there was no one in the drive thru lane. But, I have... More
