I enjoy this place thoroughly! We were able to sit in comfortable chairs and enjoy our coffees and muffins without having to yell over a crowd or feel rushed. Fit 7 of us easily.

not consistent quality. 2 months ago my soup was scalding hot and my sandwich was overstuffed, very messy to eat ... 2 weeks ago my same meal was perfect ... 2 nights ago my soup was luke warm and my salad was rather soggy .. its hit or miss here depending on which staff is working and rushing to leave

I generally like Panera and really like their green goddess salad and autumn soup. However not crazy about staff at Bedford location. Lunch is crazy there and have picked up my salad to go - waited in line - forgot salad dressing (of course realized it when got back to office) went back as several people had gotten same salad...

We stopped in here for a quick bite to eat and enjoyed our meal. Service was quick and our food was nice and hot. The staff was friendly and professional. I recommend the steak and white cheddar panini!

I have eaten at Panera Bread in Bedford, NH many times and have never been disappointed. I love their breads, sandwiches, soups, drinks, pastries, and especially their bagels! Upon entering you must select your items and wait at the counter for them. Then find a comfy place to sit and devour all of their deliciousness! I enjoy meeting friends there... More

The line was long but well worth the wait for good food. The workers not so friendly. No smile, and one was "huffing and puffing" about a request for a side of mayo.

Consistency across panera is a good thing. This is just as good as every other panera. The Lobster roll and clam chowder were pretty good and not something offered at panera in the south. Did not realize the Lobster roll would come as a full prion though so a bit more for lunch than I planned.

Thank Gina C
