Did not go to this Panera for a wile and decided to came back. And it was nice surprise. Inside was changed, stuff was welcome, food was great. They treat you like you are the best customer, bring your food to your table, help if you need. Interior is perfect for enjoying food and company if you have or just... More

You can't beat the location! We were able to have a short business meeting at a longer table in the back and stuck our kids in a table across within eye distance. Wifi, coffee and kids meals...you can't beat it!

Very comfortable seating with outdoor patio . The dishes are freshly prepared with promotional dishes changing constantly. Very friendly staff. Clean and comfortable setting for a good start of the day.

Panera is pretty much a know commodity so it comes down to service and cleanliness. Service was very poor and the staff acted more like we were an inconvenience than an actual customer. Restaurant, particularly the men's room was dirty and looking over the tables it looks like a lot of crumbs and the tables had not been wiped down.... More

Good luck coming to this place and finding a clean table. Came in the evening at a non-rush hour, so there should be no reason why they can't clean up some of he tables when there isn't much foot-traffic.

The cook staff has very little preparing that they have to do on their own (most of the products are in bags), but what they are responsible for is not done consistently well or with a smile. Maybe an unhappy crew. The restaurant seems sorely understaffed (all four of my visits). Probably the least clean of any Panera I have... More

Nice to have food made for you while you wait with fresh ingredients. They also have good smoothies and good coffee.

How often have you past a place you been in numerous times never disappointed, know the foods good but go elsewhere to try something new ? SURPRISE, Panera in the Nassau Park always offers at least one item that wasn't there before. Yes their pastry, my favorite is the orange scone, is usually there if they haven't sold out and...

This restaurant can be very busy - they have kiosks to place your order at (beats standing in line) and they will bring the meal to where you're sitting. Everything is good, soups, sandwiches, paninis, etc. You'll eat healthy at this place - meal will be delivered to your table in about 5-10 minutes if not faster.
