Spent month of March on Siesta Key and would go to Panara each day for coffee. The lines were long and 50% of the time they were out of coffee, and they were so slow replacing the empty pots! Just about every day I would...More

Panara Bread's coffee is pretty good buy, it's not good enough to justify the prices they're charging. They are even more expensive than a nearby coffee specialty store. No deal.

I travel for work and always look for a Panera when I am away from home. I like the food and the environment. On Wednesday, March 8 I went with a friend for a quick bite after work at my local Panera on Tamiami Trail...More
