We were downtown for the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium and decided to eat supper at Panera Bread. It was good, just what you would expect from Panera Bread. We had soup and a sandwich. I chose the tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich. It hit the spot for a cold night. The service was good and... More

You've been in a Panera. You know what its like. This one just happens to be near the Ryman and Broadway. It provides an oasis in downtown Nashville.

We visited this cafe a couple of times. Once was just for coffee but the other time we had a light lunch. Service was fast and efficient and the quality of the food was very nice.

I love Panera but my husband had never been to one. Unfortunately he'll probably never try one again after eating here. We walked in and there were a few cashiers walking back and forth they saw us and walked off. I guess the new thing is to order your food at the kiosk,but i have never done this. I started... More

We were staying in the Hilton and decided to try Panera for breakfast on the Sunday morning. Everything was good and freshly prepared. Fast, free wifi too.

Great place for lunch and only steps from the Renaissance Hotel on Commerce. Service was great, the dining area was comfortable and the food was amazing!

I love Panera and the staff here dealt with the amazing amount of people by being really quick but also really accurate. I will likely come back if given the opportunity to come back to Nashville.

Food was pretty good but the service is dire. One of these places where the staff stand around talking. Unlike the rest of Nashville lacking friendliness. So we won't be back.

Our hotel only offered a full breakfast buffet. We chose to take the shuttle downtown. This location is right by the Ryman so we stopped for coffee & a bagel 3 of our 5 days in town. The service is good & you know you are going to get fresh hot food.

Thank Corlene Z
