To say I was stunned about the remodeled Panera Breads in Princeton would be an understatement. The new Panera Bread puts the emphasis on a friendly place to stay longer and all that means to the bottom line. Condense space in showing their product mix, pastry etc. I think it was well done and appealed to a larger base .... More

Panera is a great stop for coffee and a variety of breads or pastry. Staff is friendly and willing to help with special requests.

The Panera in Princeton is generally quieter than the other options in town for a quick bite or coffee. It's pretty much what you would expect from any Panera. We meet here regularly because the tables have plenty of space between them and we don't have to fight to be heard.

After a day of walking around Princeton University, we found this place great for sandwiches and hog drinks! The best chai tea latte I've had in the US so far! Customer service was great too!!
