Panera has changed the menu to be even more healthy - my favorite is the fuji apple salad. I also love the different herbal teas. For an easy Friday night transition into the weekend - Panera works!

We were disappointed in the service at Red Robin next door and walked over after a 15 minute wait without drinks/food. Panera had happy faces, great service, and really great food.

While traveling, it was great to be able to sit down and have a healthy meal. The sandwich and soup selection was appetizing and the price was right.

Ive never been a Panera Bread fan but we received a gift card from there. I’ve always heard the soups were prepackaged and they definitely taste like they are. The menu for kids is unbelievable, Macncheese and a hunk of bread? Hire a nutritionist!

It's consistent from store to store, and town to town. If you don't see it, they will make it for it.

A bit run down and unkempt. Tables dirty, floor dirty. Make you wonder if the food is dirty. But, it tasted fine, so.....The prices are a bit too much for the small amounts provided, bur.....OK.
