On line ordering is easy---you can choose your food and any custom add-ons, deletions, size and sides. When you pay for it online, it is waiting for pick-up when you arrive. Very convenient! Ordering in restaurant is somewhat confusing, as the whole menu is not on board, so you have to know what you want, or choose what's listed. We did not get what we ordered, but it being lunchtime, the place was packed and noisy, and the sandwich I received was very good. We managed to get the last table for a quick lunch.
All the food we've tried has been very tasty and we have eaten here several times while staying nearby. The green goddess salad with avocado was the salad I had been dreaming about while living in Costa Rica.

Good sandwiches--order, then find a place to sit, and they'll bring it to your table. Sometimes seating can be a problem, and sometimes people "camp out" there with their computers or book clubs or something...

The best soup and bread in the area. I'd give it five stars for the food, but why they dumped Coke and went to Pepsi I have no idea. It has affected how many times I visit since I'm a Diet Coke addict! But I love the food, and when I was sick for months, I had people bring me their soup. Very high quality baked goods, foods and breads. Reliable, too.

Recently, I ate at this Panera Bread on PCH in Torrance in January, 2017. I find the food is good; however, their counter employees need better training. Every time I have ordered a meal at this location, I have had problems with counter employees not listening to what I order. Also, they never ask me if I want the bread toasted which they can do. I am not sure if this location has poor management or uncaring employees, but it leaves a lot to be desired.

Stopped by this morning at 10:30 am and they stopped serving breakfast at 10:30 but it was cold and rainy and we thought soup would be good instead. But they don't serve lunch till 11am and only had two choices for soup on a cold rainy day. They did have pre-made fritatas but they didn't seem appetizing. It was very disappointing so we went to another restaurant who served soups all day.
