I was very disappointed with this location. They were out of Baked Potato soup, the beef and arugula had no arugula. Instead it was spinach, on the wrong type of bread. No green tea selection like they usually have either. Maybe the ones in Texas...More

Well, I was trying to give Panera another chance but they all seem to have one thing in common, DIRTY. If I had been alone I would have asked for my money back, and left. I will never try another Panera. I have learned my...More

I miss the Asian chicken salad--the new replacement isn't quite as refreshing (dressing has changed). Other standards are standard. This Panera has quick service, but the outdoor tables are on a semi-trafficked roadway and so not used very often.

Love a Panera & this one suited us fine. Nice friendly service from a lovely girl. Good coffee selection & delicious Asiago cheese bagels. Ohhh it's good to be back.

Casual dining . Needed a turkey sandwich and they have an excellent one...but $$. We spent close to $50 for 3 for a fairly light lunch and drinks. It was tasty and quick. Be careful what you order.

Panera provides good basic foods (Sandwiches, Soups, Salads, etc.) at a reasonable price. I particularly love their soups and salads, but my wife likes their Panninis.

Wait-staff look like sleep-walkers, and the speed of service is snail pace. Portions are small and expensive. Too many good places near Costa Mesa location to waste your time here.
