My husband and I have had lunch here since they opened, and always enjoy not only the food, but the atmosphere. At this particular location, you place your order either in person or at one of the machines nearby - or from your smart phone - and then it's delivered right to your table. They give you an electronic device which, somehow, knows where you're sitting. Or, you can order in advance and have it picked up via your car. No matter which way you prefer, we always enjoy their U Pick Two offer which is for my husband, a salad with soup, or for me, one of their delicious sandwiches. There are many varieties of soups, sandwiches and more to choose form plus goodies from the bakery department. We both like the Autumn Squash or New England Clam Chowder, Greek Salad, and the numerous choice of sandwiches. Breakfast is also good here whether you choose a soufle, egg white sandwich, oatmeal, yogurt & fruit, or a breakfast sandwich. Wi-Fi is free and what we like best of all is that we can sit for as long as we like without being bothered. it's a good place to meet friends and eat, sit and talk, too.

This is a good choice if you want a healthy meal while catch up on emails from work, Free W-FI allows business people and students to get stuff done while have a salad, sandwich or a breakfast souffle.

Panera Bread Cafe on Route 1 in Edison NJ is a decent quiet place for small groups. Food is reasonable and tasty. Recommend this establishment.

Visit here frequently for a decent business lunch. Food is the same as all paneras, but the service is above average. Will continuo eating here.

Seriously, about 50% of the time when I have ordered takeout at this location, the order is wrong. Management has been understanding and willing to compensate for the mistakes, but even with different staff at the register, again tonight, it happened. If it wasn't for my own intuition that kicked in when the order was being prepared, I'd be opening a salad with salami instead of chicken. There seems to be a portion control issue at this location. Comparing the ingredients of two of the same salad orders, we noticed that there seems to be a great deal of freedom in preparation, one with a disproportionate amount of greek olives and tomato strips, while the other shy on the proportions of the same. Is anyone doing staff training here?
