Panera is fast food that doesn't taste like fast food - and the surroundings are more comfortable too. I can always count on a good soup and salad at a decent price.

I love the fall soups in the bread bowl. The turkey sandwhich is very good and I love the Greek salad with the olives.

They have a great selection of baked goods for breakfast and I always like their scones. The breakfast sandwich was nice.

This is a typical Panera... good soups, salads, sandwiches, and bagels, but like all Panera's it feels like I am paying about 20 percent more than I should have to.

Veronica was extremely rude over the phone. They run out of Asiago bagels very frequently...or are just saying they are out. Maybe someone should check into that. Will not be back because of the rude service.

I recently visited one of the other Panera's in Kalamazoo and was extremely disappointed in that visit. While the service was fast, one of my guests had a horrible experience ordering and the women's bathroom was atrocious. Even after it was mentioned that there was no soap, no paper towels and little TP available, the employee spilled soap all over... More

Met a friend for lunch here as its close to both of our homes. We can usually sit and talk and enjoy our meals without interruption. I tried the lemon chicken orzo soup for the first time but it won't be the last time. It is fantastic and full of flavor. I cannot say that I enjoyed my Mediterranean flat... More

One thing about Panera is the fresh baked bread on site. Full menu of sandwiches and good soup. Plenty of tables and booths to accommodate your crowd.

I absolutely love Panera Bread for lunch and dinner. The You Pick Two option is great for those who don't want a lot of food, but would like something more than just a sandwich or a salad. You can choose a half a sandwich, a smaller portion salad, a cup of soup or even their pastas too. The bakery is... More

As everyone knows, Panera is known for its bread. Not just any bread, the best tasting bread in town! Turn that into a bread bowl and poor soup into it.. Sweet heaven! Though it was a little expensive, it is worth the quality.
