We used this Panera Bread on several occasions during our visit. The high quality of food and service was just as our previous visits in March and June 2016. The menu had changed but was still very varied and excellent quality. I had the New England Clam Chowder soup on the Friday, it was super (no pun intended). The staff,... More

I discovered this super place while visiting, from England, to see my Attorney. The service was, as I expect in the U.S.A., top rate. The salads were a joy and very different from any salad Imhad eaten in England. The staff were very efficient, but still found time to be friendly. The cakes were very tasty, probably not too good...

A group of friends met at the Panera SW Plaza for a pre-movie dinner. The atmosphere has always lacked privacy at this location, but hey, it's close to the theaters. Last night it also lacked warmth. Five of us dining left because it was way too chilly for anything but slamming our food and leaving. Not conducive to conversation! (which... More

I like most Panera Bread restaurants. Consistent, tasty, healthy. But this one is poorly managed, long wait, dark, worn out, disappointing.

I haven t found a Panaera Bread that I didn't like. This one was a little small and I really didn't like the layout but the food is always fresh and yummy. Located in a mall, but it does have an outside entrance.

On September 23, 2014 my wife and I were searching for a place to get a quick meal in Littleton. As the food court in the mall was under renovation we stopped in at Panera Bread which is located in the mall. My wife had a Turkey Cranberry flatbread and a soda and I chose the soup and half turkey... More

We were told 3 times the soup we wanted would be ready in 10-15 min., after 40 min.--no soup. The worst part: They couldn't have cared less, not a shred of an apology for telling us the wrong thing repeatedly and leaving us waiting that long. We left angry with no soup. One of the worst restaurant experiences period.

You always know that the quality of the food at Panera will be good. Love their pastries, as well. For a fast food option, it's got a pleasant atmosphere, and you feel you are not being bad to your body. Great coffee, as well.

It's in the mall, but that doesn't mean it can't be pleasant. The sandwiches are always fresh tasting and the soup is great, even on a Summer afternoon. It's a welcome alternative to the Mall Court, which is thankfully situated at the other end of the building.
