I really enjoy Panera for their consistently good menu and service. This location on Bruce B. Downs Blvd. was well up to my expectations. Our party of 3 enjoyed a nice lunch of salads and sandwiches. The staff was friendly and efficient.

Clean and private lunch with my daughter. Truly amazing staff who were friendly and helpful. The chicken soup was ok and the bread was delicious. Tuna sandwich was really chewy and enjoyable.

Had Fuji Apple Salad and Chicken Noodle soup, both were excellent. The restaurant is clean and not too noisy. Good place for USF Students to study. Been here a few times and the food is always good.
