Good for an early morning breakfast. All the Panera restaurants have good bakeries, but this one is superior. They have an exceptional oven that turns out great baguettes. Yes, the baguettes are American style, not French, but some of the local best you can find. They have great values in their many soup and sandwich selections. My fave is the... More

Talk about easy and efficient. Panera, led by catering manager Jonathan, is the place to go if you need great food for a business lunch. I was deeply impressed with the quality of the food, on-time delivery, and responsive customer service in the days leading up to our order. Great stuff.

These franchised stores can be so inconsistent and in this Panera Bread place, the staff can do with some customer service training, and one young condescending fellow in particular. Wasting time to bother to elaborate more. Conclusion? Never step into this store again.

Recently met with my family after travelling for a few hundred miles and this was a perfect place for late lunch. The ambiance was nice, the quality of the food excellent, service was fast, price very reasonable and staff very professional. Overall, really good impression as it was my second time visiting this venue. It can get quite busy but... More

This is a good Panera, located in Fallsgrove Shopping center. Parking is a real challenge at prime lunchtime hours since there are several restaurants in the same location. Food is typical Panera, good and will fill you up. I often get lunch to go since it is usually crowded.

My kids always order take out from this place and I can not for the life of me figure out why? Sandwiches are always puny and thrown together and taste terrible. My son-in-laws sandwich was not even grilled on one side. Most of the time you do not get your whole order. Soups are O.K. but better can be bought... More

I was introduced to Panera two years ago and I have returned whenever I can. The place is busy throughout the day, which to me means the food is fresh. The staff are helpful--although in this place, the staff who took my order just seemed to have forgotten it until another person asked why I was standing around. The brewed... More

I don't understand the allure of Panera Bread. The 1/2 sandwich I ordered was more like a 1/4 sandwich in my opinion. Nothing special about the "chips", just a little bag. Iced green tea was good overall though, not worthy the nearly $10 cost. Meh.

I wanted breakfast and nothing but lunch options around, when I spotted this oasis. Very busy considering the desert of options, but it never effected the quality.
