The following day, this coffee cake was almost rock hard, with the topping falling off when cut usually, I have been very pleased, but not this recent purchase. .

My first time at a Panera Resteraunt (dining). I ordered the bread bowl. Super good. I love that you can bypass the counter and order on iPads at the door. It's extremely intimidating to me to have the person stare at you while you are looking up at the menu trying to figure out what you want to order. Ordering... More

I have been a loyal Panera customer for many years. Yes , it isn't the cheapest place, but loved the atmosphere too. Now the "reception" area has been downsized, bakery has shrunk to next to nothing and NO lovely displays. Starting to have mixed feelings about even going. Darnit

The autumn squash soup, chai latte, baguette, and gluten conscious triple chocolate cookie were all delicious. The food came out quickly, but originally, the kitchen forgot to include my cookie so I had to go back to the counter to get one, without any additional hassle or questioning. There was room to spread out and play a board game. I... More

I wish this were around longer than it is. Wonderful bagel - cream cheese adds just the right amount of umph to this - makes it seem like a dessert!

I don't understand why people rave about Panera Bread. The portions are small and rather expensive. The food Is ok, nothing special. Soup and sandwiches. Salads are also quite small. Don't feel as though it's worth the price, but check it out if you must.

My wife and I have eaten at Panera Bread venues in several states and cities. So far each experience has been TOPS, EXCELLENT, AS-GOOD-AS-IT-GETS. In Toldeo we loved our soup in bread bowls. We loved our salads. We loved the venue / appearance of the restaurant. We loved the service from the cashier who took the time to lead us... More

Service is slow. Some idiot starts smoking in small outside dining area, right next to us. I suggested he not smoke and he ignored me. Mentioned it to manager and she said there is nothing she can do. Go elsewhere - I will.

Stopped in to pick up breakfast to go. Three (3) employees behind counter pretending to be busy and one (1) employee serving/talking to a customer at front of the counter (he wanted to be super nice to the young lady). Meantime i was totally ignored by him and 3 others. This was for about 3 plus minutes and then a... More
