“Average Pastry, Average Service”
Review of Panera Bread Cafe

Panera Bread Cafe
Ranked #9 of 29 Bakeries in Albuquerque
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 December 2017

You'd think that a pecan sticky roll or a quiche would stand on their own and be delightful on a cold day - but served cold, neither one was as appealing as it could have been. Tossed on a cold plate by the cashier (who had just handled my money and had a hard time making change) I was left disappointed. Both of our picks would have been improved if they had been heated up (even Starbucks heats a pastry). Music in the dining room was quite loud and to compensate, the large coffee group behind us was louder still. My dining companion had picked this as a place for our breakfast meeting but neither of us felt like this would be on our list for next time.

Great service and good food. Panera strives to walk the talk!
We love them and they do make good bagels (almost close to a NYC type).

The food was okay, coffee is nice and strong and the servers are kind and courteous, but please turn off the radio! It is so dang annoying trying to have a relaxing quiet breakfast with music punching me in my ear drum! Turn off the radio and the rating will go up.

Stopped by a couple of times and got the 1/2 sandwich, 1/2 salad combo. Portions are large, food excellent. Every combo was different and all were delicious!

Panera Bread reminds me of a Seinfeld episode. The bagels have no seasoning on the bottom half. Perhaps they could just sell bagel tops and give the bagel bottoms to a Food Bank. Please give us seasoning on the bagel bottoms or we'll start collecting your bagel bottoms for the poor and help them also protest. Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain
