Panera is always considered a good place for lunch and we visit a number as we travel. No wait in line, but it did seem to back up several times. They give you a number and deliver to your table. Time to get our meal was a bit longer than normal. Had some issues with one of the drinks was... More

Typical Panera. Clean restrooms, free wifi, comfortable booths. This location has bagels that are larger than other Panera Bread lications

Stopped in for lunch with my daughter while we were shopping. Always friendly staff and great food. Surprised when the cashier informed me that I could add a tip. What?! We get our own drinks and bus our own table. Liked that I can fill my own lemonade at the drink bar now. Or choose from several types of tea.... More

Love this place! It's one of my favorites for lunch, and the sweets are yummy too! Their reward program allows you to earn points that you can turn into a free item and the atmosphere is pleasant.

WE have eaten here before and we hear people rave about it. They have a nice soup-sandwich combo. People really like their bread and will buy it to take out for parties, etc. I think the place is over-rated.

We've eaten here before but this time it was absolutely top notch. Very friendly and helpful employees. The cook told us that he still had something he'd overheard the cashier tell us they didn't have and fixed us what we wanted. Food was terrific and while we've visited a number of this brands restaurants, this was the best managed and... More

After a very long drive from Knoxville, we stopped for soup and sandwich for dinner. I went to the ladies room to find toilet paper everywhere- dirty floor and sink area. Dinner rush over (7pm) not a very busy place at that time. Our food was fine. Could not find a table that was clean. We had to wipe it... More

Panera did not disappoint my crave for real, freshly prepared food while we were traveling! New items added to menu to keep customers coming back while keeping their standard fare available. I ordered the Thai won ton soup with baguette and turkey panini (made custom). Hit the spot! Cannot beat the bread there - and I even indulged in a... More
