There are a lot of interesting choices for a meal. They also change things up from time to time. Panera mal kes much of their efforts to use better, fresher ingredients. All good. But check out the sodium levels. Sky high! The breads are excellent but the sweets are better looking than they taste. What is with no decaf coffee... More

I often visit this store. It's not a great restaurant, but the service is usually friendly. On this visit, I ordered a pastry (pecan twist) and coffee. I found a long brown hair baked inside the pastry. Makes you wonder what else was inadvertently included in the mixture before baking. Hair nets should be required of all persons preparing food....

Out about a week before my wife delivers our baby and enjoyed a really nice meal. We both had the pick two. I had a cold sandwich but will go back to a hot panini next time. Their soups are always great.

Stopped for a bagel and a drink. Was served a bagel that was hard as a rock -I could bang it loudly on the plate. Almost like it had been left out for days. Cashier was also not familiar with the menu or if gluten free items were available and was not willing to go ask for help. Can't say... More

Last visited January 29. Enjoyed having a meal while doing crossword puzzles. Pastries are good but not great. They seem baked more for shelf-life than consumption. Hard to cut with the plastic knife & fork they provide. Atmosphere is generally conducive to work & thought, but music often too loud and not well chosen. A better selection of quiet, upscale...

Pastries a bit hard and crusty; did not seem fresh. Difficult to cut with the small plastic knife & fork. Also, music not very pleasing. Soup and sandwich meal very pleasing.

Stopped to grab a quick bite on our way thru Kentucky to Tennessee. This was my very first visit to a Panera Bread. My travel companions have been before to a location in New York State , and recommended stopping here. Certainly very, very good. The squash soup was the best squash soup I have ever had!

Visited Sept 2 2016. As always (at least in my experience) the food has great. Normally order the pick two. It is just enough to fill me up. The personnel are friendly and professional. I totally recommend this place to all my friends. You cannot go wrong. One of the better places to eat in Elizabethtown.
