In the centre of Lexington, MA, this restaurant is a very good place to have lunch or a light dinner. Also , behind this restaurant is sufficient parking available.

This is a great place to enjoy a lunch. The food was all very fresh, and was prepared in minimum time.

Had a half a ham and cheese sandwich and 1/2 Caesar salad. Very nicely prepared and very fresh. A good place to grab a meal when you're on the go. The soups looked good, too but wasn't hungry enough for more.

On route to Lexington Green, stopped here for breakfast, very tasty egg bacon and cheese sandwich and gorgeous cinnamon pastry plus a great breakfast tea. Definitely worth a stop for breakfast if in the Lexington area!

We ate breakfast here several times during our stay in Lexington. Operation is efficient and quality high, as it is in most Paaneras we've visited. Doesn't seem overly crowded for either breakfast or lunch.

Consistently good Standard for a chain restaurant. I love the soups and salads (ask for the dressing on the side to adjust to your liking), a relatively healthy meal choice.

Took a friend to this outlet and was disappointed with the service. Cashier had little knowledge of the menu and found it difficult to explain the content. Panera why make it so complicated. Customers buy with their eyes so simplify your menu board by showing food shots representing what you want to sell and customers will be satisfied.

Sometimes it's nice to go to a chain, because you know what to expect and you're not surprised. The bread was great as usual.
