Because we had good experiences at other Panera Bread shops, we tried the shop in Manchester while visiting in the area. We were there in February and again in May. Both times were on a Saturday and there were lines to place our orders. The...More

I agree with other negative reviews. Have been going to this location since it opened its doors in 2002. Since the buy out of Panera Bread last year, it has deteriorated quickly. Used to get great customer service, they had a knowledgeable staff (including managers),...More

We do not have a Panera near us in Maine, so anytime we see one when we are traveling we try and stop. We were headed home on the last third of our trip. After driving for the last eight hours, whenwe saw the sign...More

For a family, all of whom have different tastes, this is quite perfect and undemanding. It’s fine, you get what you ask for and everyone is satisfied. It may be production-line, but that’s OK.

I am a regular customer, 2 times a week. In the past couple of weeks this Panera location has deteriorated into a messy, low morale, poorly managed mess. Out of so many items and ingredients. Long lines and really slow service, and just grumpy people.

I was a big Panera fan until recently. They have decided to install self service kiosks - no problem except they are now short staffed behind the ordering counter while a Panera staff person stands idly by to assist anyone who wishes to use the...More

Stopped here for a quick bight on the way to Boston over the weekend. Terrible, and that's being nice, customer service at the front register. Really, it's OK to speak clearly and maybe even smile...just a little. Certainly did not feel welcome. Food was up...More

We were looking for a furniture store but wanted first to have lunch when saw the Panera restaurant. I like this food chain, it's less junk than other chains with options of salads and bread instead of fries. I asked for the combo of half...More
