Our first time there after they bought out Paradise Bakery at this location. First, tables are not cleaned off quickly and then not wiped down. We sat outside and, sure, there's dust in the desert but the table was filthy maybe not wiped for weeks. Then, as soon as you walk to the door you know what's ahead -- the... More

Only fattening breakfast options. Nothing healthy or organic. It's why American is fat. Tried to get a scamblef egg. It was not an option. Skip it

Very clean with quick service. I ordered a 1/2 roast Turkey avocado sandwich with chicken wild rice soup and my wife ordered 1/2 steak and white cheddar panini and a cashew chicken salad. Both sandwiches were great....salad was fresh and soup was fantastic. Be sure to try a sugar cookie!

I went for the first time this past weekend. The whole menu is amazing, it was hard to choose. I ended up with a half salad (strawberry field) and half sandwich (turkey, avocado, bacon) and it was so good! I loved their lemon zest cookie too! They have a fun, warm, inviting atmosphere. I will definitely be going again!

Food that is fresh, non-processed, is important to me. I travel quite a bit and I am pleased when I find a Panera close to my hotel. They offer fantastic salads, sandwiches, flatbreads and panninis. They make their own bread and pastry items. The soups are delicious. To top it off the service is incredible. They make their own dressings... More

I might be the only one in Arizona that hadn't been to a Panera Bread. Their ads on tv caught my eye. I went for breakfast. Had the egg soufflé. Excellent. Cooked correctly, warm, very tasty. A friend had a good 'ol bagel. She commented that her husband had just said, I guess we can't get a good bagel in... More

This is a sandwich place. Your walk up to the counter to order. Not fancy. The sandwiches are good but overall the place is not really memorable. Everything is made fresh, however.

Stopped in for lunch. You place your order and pay at the counter and then they deliver the food to your table on a tray. Drinks are self service with refills. Had half a sandwich and half a bowl of french onion soup. Not bad, but not very good - for about $10. Offered us to add a pastry for... More

Although slated to appear to be a healthy choice, fresh food restaurant, I've found it to have fairly tasteless foods that often seem to be not quite made from scratch. It is an adequate choice if you are willing to settle. I have been here at least four times with a large group and we finally decided to pass on... More

Took my 2 granddaughters for a late lunch and it was not good at all. I had the turkey kale sandwich that was really pathetic for the price. Kids' meals were equally as bad. PBJ and turkey sandwich just white bread with a little PBJ or turkey and American cheese. The cookies and sweets we ordered were ok but the... More
