Easy to get to location if you heading north on 101 from GG bridge. The salad was wonderfully spicy and had a wide selection of lettuce with other garden treats, topped by taco chips. Large worked for sharing along with splitting a sandwich.

We ordered food to go from Panera Bread at the Northgate Mall. My tuna sandwich came with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions on whole wheat bread, with chips, a cookie and a pickle. And it was all very fresh. Not bad for under $10.

Pandora is a comfortable, clean, convenient spot to stop for a meal. The salads are great and the baked goods yummy. The only reason I didn't rate it higher is a recent change of policy that uses buzzers and self pick up of food.

Our family - despite three young children - loves healthy food. Somehow the food at Panera always strikes us as healthy and wholesome - and even the kids love it. This outlet at the Northgate Mall is set off to a corner and may be...More
