Located in a mall we ate lunch here. Food from this chain does not vary much from location to location. I did notice the soup I typically order did not have as much salt (a good thing) as my local Panera's. Restaurant was clean and food was delivered promptly.

I ordered a half sandwich and cup of soup. It was the BLT turkey Avacodo sandwich. When I received the sandwich, the bacon was not cooked! I told the server I was not happy with the sandwich and she replied" I cooked that bacon myself and it is cooked! This is the last time I will eat in that Panera... More

Went for a brief dinner meeting, for our Women's Club, food was good, manager created a table big enough for all of us to sit together. Restaurant looked clean and the servers were attentive at the register and offered extra items available for sale at a discount price. Very nice

Panera just does not understand that service matters. While I love the menu, the service has really got to improve. Lunch is busy--so you need extra staff to take orders and prepare meals. Panera however has a woman walking around asking if you need anything?!?!?! What are you supposed to say---I want my order so I can eat? Honestly, devote... More

Yes..I give it credit, the food is very good but I'm a firm believer that you pay what you get and let me tell you..they are getting so expensive by the minute and the... More

That's what I go there for. The soup in the bread bowl is a nice filling lunch. You just need to be careful how you eat it so the soup doesn't leak out all over the table.

I went to the Manchester Panera by the Christmas tree shop road that leads to the mall. Great atmosphere, great food and I recently found out they also donate the bread to churches at the end of each day, bravo for looking out for your fellow man.
