Lunchtime on holiday Friday, this restaurant was packed to the gills. But the service was good and the scone was very fresh. Panera coffee is as good, maybe even better than Starbucks coffee. Parking is convenient.

We had the soup which was a bit salty but tasty and hot on a cold day. The pastries are very good and the self serve coffee decent. The coffee was low and cooling, and the minute that I mentioned it, the gal was getting it fixed. Good job.

This restaurant keeps improving it's menu. From sustainable meats to healthy salads and soups, It's a must visit! The staff is friendly and the restaurant is very comfortable and spacious. A good respite in a busy day! It's also great for take-out and mobile orders.

Overpriced sandwiches dressed up as something special! Staff were quite rude when my wife asked for help and made jokes about it when she had walked away. Throughly unprofessional!

I have been to this Panera numerous times when I am in town but have never taken the time to review it. This is a very busy lunch time location so be prepared. The parking is extremely tight due to the numerous businesses around this area. The parking is really my only complaint. The lines seem to always move quickly.... More

1 cashier meant a 20 minute wait to order. Low staff meant that half the filled were filled with dirty dishes. Rickety tables and unclean conditions. The worst Panera I've seen. Do they treat staff so bad they can't get anyone to work?

Panera has great healthy food, and the cafe in Pinole is no exception. The line is generally doable. Service is ok, and parking is good.
