I enjoy the food at Panera but never feel like I got a deal. The seating is great and the atmosphere is very pleasant.

I always get a great bagel, chai tea, and friendly service. I recently tried the Thai chicken salad and it was great. You must like spicy to enjoy.

We used to frequent Panera in the past because we loved their Veggie Panini that was a huge Vegetarian favorite. Their decision to eliminate the item meant that the only healthy and tasty option (besides their salads) was no longer available. It was also great value. We no longer go there, but if you're a fan of freshly baked breads,... More

Standard commercial fare. Nothing really grabs you. I struggled to find something I really wanted. Felt like I was settling. If you are looking for more creative or home cooked flavor, try another place. Service was good...nice staff.

Having gone to Panera many times I have always found it a place that never disappoints. Whether it is pastry in the morning, or salads for lunch to soups and sandwiches for diner; I've always found the food to be good. In particular, I enjoy the Thai Chicken Salad, the Iced Green Tea. As a customer, I appreciate that you... More

This place seems to do a good business. I find their soups very tasty and especially enjoy the soup in a bread bowl. I'm not as thrilled about their salads or sandwiches. The desserts are very yummy, however. I've always had fast service at this location, and there is ample seating.

As a frequent traveler, I appreciate the consistently, clean, high quality experiences you get at the Panera chain. The food is always fresh and the service is at a high level. This Panera has super friendly staff and is right off of Federal Road in Brookfield. Tables were spread out nice - there is a fire place and excellent wi-fi.... More

Lines at lunch time were long but they moved pretty fast. Typical menu, quality and pricing. Located right in the Danbury Mall.

This is a relaxing self order & pickup order. Delicious bakery items. Bread is fresh daily for sandwich.
