Love to pop in for a quick lunch while out shopping or errands. I always have food served fast and it's good quality. Mostly I get the Broccoli soup.. love it! The staff is friendly, plus use my rewards card to get discounts or specials. I'm not to crazy about the baked goods, sometimes dry, so I stay away from... More

I enjoy going to Panera for any meal of the day. Breakfast is no exception. Some of my favorites are the breakfast steak sandwich and spinach/artichoke soufflés (when available) Got a sweet tooth? Have their Cinnamon crunch bagel with hazelnut cream cheese. They'll even slice and toast it for you if you ask!

Let me begin by saying I LOVE Panera Bread restaurants and am part of their rewards program. What I did not expect was to order a ceasar salad with STALE croutons. Yep, this is a bakery and the croutons served on the salad were stale. What made this worse was when I took the salad up to the counter to... More

This was our first visit and the store was very busy. The cashier did an excellent job of explaining the ordering process and covered the food choices very well. We waited quite a while for the food to be served. We felt the portions were on the small side for the price and the food was average at best.

Expensive for what you get. I had the flat bread chicken with a salad. 4 thin pieces of chicken. My wife had a large salad, no drinks. 19$ later. Not worth it

First time ever going to Panera Bread, but it won't be my last. I am a soup person and they have the best creamy tomato. My daughter had the French onion and she said it was also delicious. The salad I had was also very good, so if you are a soup and salad person and never been to Panera... More

I love eating at Panera's due to the fact that they try to keep there food clean and on the healthier side compared to other places around them. Port Charlotte location is always busy. They have friendly staff, fast service. Love the you pick two menu. If you are looking for something on the go then this is it.
