Everyone by now knows or has been to a Panera Bread! And, for some reason they keep getting better and better which makes me want to go back time and time again. Always fresh, you can order healthy if that's your thing, if not they have a great selection of so many varieties of sandwiches, soups, broth bowls and the... More

Everything I've tried I've loved. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. My grandson loves the macaroni & cheese.

Great place for lunch. Salads are fresh and lots of variety. Go there a lot. They are always busy so you know the food must be good.

Panera offers a wide range of sandwiches, soups and salads which can be followed by one of their amazing baked goods. Their Pick2 is a great choice for lunch. Their servings are generous and never lacking in flavor.

These places are the same wherever you stop which is a good thing. This is our fist time at this location as we were on vacation. But it was just the same great taste and quality we have come to expect from Panera

I love coming here for lunch. I usually do the half sandwich and salad and take a little muffin for dessert. Love the different options of food and the prices are affordable.

Panera was our fuel each day before running off to Coachella. It was quick an easy to order with their high-tech ipad ordering things, even though the old confused people hated them. The soups and sammies were top notch quality and quantity, consistently.

If you've been to a Panera Bread, than you know what to expect. It's a definite hang out for the "mature men" who breakfast together every morning. :) The place is clean and has the usual Panera menu.

I had never tried a Panera until I moved to California. I love this place. The staff is always cheerful and helpful. You can order online before you arrive, to save some time in busy times. You can even order inside on computer kiosks to avoid any lines inside. Once you setup payment and do this a couple times, it... More

While service at Panera's is always slow, now the food has dipped. While I'm normally just a soup guy at this place I ventured out of my comfort zone and ordered a Napa Chicken Salad sandwich recently and brought it home. When I got home and opened I was stunned to see the sandwich contained about 5 small chucks of... More
