To get the ringing out of our ears from Twoten Oyster Bar and finally hear each other talk, we wound up here. Coffee and Danish and cinnamon rolls was a blessing, even though it was late. Our server was friendly and sociable. This Panera is as all the others, so no surprises if you have been to one before. Clean... More

Always good. No surprises. Never better. Rarely worse (avocados weren't ripe). Tasty deserts. Great Chai Tea (hot).

The soup and sandwich were inhaled bu a picky eater. My noodle soup was much better at this location. The trainee at the cash register was super nice to my 85 year old mother.

A most enjoyable supper of soup and sandwich while seated with my face aglow in the fireplace and warming my toes. Prepared with care and delivered properly. Food is as good as Panera's everywhere else. My favorite chicken and wild rice soup.

It's the same Panera you've been to elsewhere. The old St. Louis Bread Company went national and had to rebrand. Sandwiches are decent, as are the soups and salads. If the prices weren't so high, I'd give it a higher rating. Friends say, "Well, it's better than McDonalds." True. So are my own sandwiches from my fridge, and even if... More

This place is similar to a Deli because you wait in line to order and then you wait while they prepare your meal. And you are given a beeper to alert you that your order is ready. It is a very clean and attractively decorated restaurant. It is informal, but very nice in that there is a fireplace. The food... More

Solid local franchise located just off the main highway (Rte. 1) at the Historic Downtown Wakefield exit. Plenty of options for breakfast and lunch. Mini quiches are very good. Artisan bread choices for sandwiches or takeout by the loaf.

My best day of the week is Sunday mornings when I drive to Paneras and buy their mini scones. There are 3 different types and they are all my favorites. The mini scones are just the right sized and I love the double berry. They are pre packaged and great to take with you for a brunch or to take... More

This Panera is well-run and comfortable. I stop in sometimes for a quick bite and to do a bit of work on my laptop.The food is also nutritious, depending, of course, on what you choose. I have two minor complaints about this place: the noise level can be very high when large groups congregate at the bigger tables. Also, they... More
