Panera offers a nice variety of good food in a pleasant environment. For breakfast, I love the "Power Sandwich." It is quite tasty and satisfying for reasonable price and amount of calories. I have always enjoyed Panera's soups and sandwiches. My wife really likes their seasonal salads.

Love this place as the service never disappoints. Most of the cashiers / servers are young, middle-class females, and generally have this chipperness about them that makes doing business here well worth it. They are the type of staff that can actually hold a conversation with their customers and make solid recommendations on menu items their patrons might not be... More

We had a lunch of soup and sandwiches here recently and found the food fresh and tasty and the service good. It was definitely a popular place on a Sunday lunchtime. I've been to other Panera's and been disappointed but not this one. My only gripe is that the portions are not large so there is nothing to take away... More

Panera's is a meeting place for friends and business. Always see groups of people around computers using the free wi-fi. Excellent sandwiches, best bagels in town, cookies to die for and fresh breads. Good for lunch, breakfast and snacks at the Bowie Town Center.

In the modern world, the delis of the past are no more. But, you can have a hand made sandwich created for you at any Panera. They have a set menu of delicious sandwiches, and a rotating menu of seasonal favorites. If you just want some fresh baked pastries, Panera has those as well.

The Bowie location is always clean and efficient with their orders. They get you the food very quickly and the order is always on point. This is one of my favorite places to eat at anywhere, but especially in Bowie!

You can't go wrong with lunch here. Great bread and the soups are generally good. The sandwiches are good. You won't be disappointed. Prices are fair. Take home a loaf of bread too, delicious.

I always enjoy going to Panera Bread. I love their chicken sandwiches with a bowl of brocolli cheddar soup and a side of rolls. The food is always hot and tasty though you will pay more for a meal here than fast food places but hey, the food is much better at Panera than say a McDonalds.
