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... More

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... More

The muffin tops are the best. They take the best part of the muffin and serve it to you. The best bagel is the cinnamon bagel. And each time you come in you qualify for a reward. So make sure you are a rewards member. You'll be surprised what you will get for free.

We've been going to Panera for many years but haven't been in a month or so. This morning it was very confusing with their service. They used to either call out your name or give you a number for your table or give you a buzzer. Today they just put the bagel on one counter calling out the type it... More

Love going to Panera Bread for quick lunch with the kids. Mac and cheese is the kids favorite, we always try the different options of soups and sandwiches. Never disappointed. Friendly and quick service.

Panera is always good and consistent where ever you are. This is another example of good food, but a little pricy for sandwich and the mac n cheese is the best ever but expensive for the serving size.

Bagel with plain cream cheese $3.39. Love the dark roast coffee (small $2.09. Seating divided in two areas. Took a small counter seat with wobbly chair (needs... More

This Panera is very popular, even on Sundays at 8AM, line moving fast. Very tasty chedar/broccoli soup. Chocolate cookies to die for. Crisp salads. Large sandwich platters for office parties. Great variety of breads. Our favorite is the sour dough baguette. The souffles come in different flavors:spinach/artichoke, bacon/spinach, 4 cheeses, cheese/mushrooms a special breakfast treat. Panera's prices are kinda high,... More

I had difficulty last time I visited this location. Again this time there was confusion at the register. The Iced Tea was empty. They did respond and fill it...thank you! The portions have gotten much smaller! I've been getting the same BBQ salad for years and this one was TINY. Same bowl, just a thin layer of salad at the... More

Panera's concept of serving delicious freshly-prepared foods has made it a popular destination for quick meals or snacks. The popularity of this place often makes it a bit crowded and congested, particularly at peak eating hours. The selection of delicious food items, however, is well worth the wait.
