Whenever I am in the area I often go by Panera Bread and always eat the Brocolli Cheddar soup and salad combo. The Brocolli Cheddar soup is some of the best soup that I have ever eat. The Cob salad is very good and the salad dressing is excellent. Was there on Friday, the cashier was very nice, the facility... More

Ate at this restaurant for the first time in a long time only because I was given a gift card. It is not really one of my favorite places to eat. There are much better sandwiches and soups at other sandwich shops. The sandwiches are just blah and nothing to brag about. The soups are not that flavorful.

My salad bowl was half filled with lettuce and a skimpy amount of chicken on it. A Wendy's $4.99 salad would have put this salad to shame! My husband's soup was... More

Only the bakery items have not changed. Sandwiches, soups and salads are not the same quality as they were even 2 years ago. Not a place I will go for lunch or dinner.

In Gainesville attending a class. Restaurant is clean and staff is friendly. They do not offer military discounts unless you are in uniform though. They didn't do any promotions for Veterans Day either.

The service at this Panera Bread has a lot to be desired. I took mt daughter to lunch here and the staff was nicer to her than they were to me. The food is as good as anyother Panera that I've eaten at but not the best even for Panera.

Nice and clean with ample parking. I feel they are over priced for what they give you. Hard to get in & out of their parking lot.

The food is excellent but the portions are small and the prices are high. How much does a soup cost to make? I go occasionally and get the broccoli soup.

Everything is always fresh, the staff is top notch, and their product is solid. I enjoy coming to this location and am glad it is in Gainesville. This Panera is always clean and the food and efficiency and professionalism of the staff make me keep coming back.
