I was in town to meet with a couple of friends for lunch. We elected to meet at this Panera Bread restaurant. The restaurant is in the Colonnade at Union Mill Shopping Center. We arrived around 12:30 pm. There was ample parking near the restaurant....More

I keep trying different things on the menu, salads, sandwiches, pastries, and I just can't find anything that is that good. Everything is just average, nothing particularly tasty or flavorful. I will say the bread that comes with the salads is great, but everything else...More

After sitting outside this afternoon in the cold and rainy weather watching a lacrosse game, we were ready for warm food. The Panera Bread across the road called our names! We all had the Soup and Sandwich combo and started feeling better. Ahhh...the Tomato Soup,...More

The service is horrible. The food is average to below. Loaves of bread are good, especially the sesame bread; but you will have to queue for a long wait to purchase. Overall, this restaurant is not worth the effort.

Had dinner here a few days ago, great panini sandwich. The place was a little overrun with teenagers eating KFC from next door. If I were the manager, I would have booted them.

Convenient location for those of us who live close by. Predictable good food, average priced. Convenient as a meeting place for coffee and pastry, or for lunch or dinner.

If your on a diet it's a great place for a light meal. I recommend it for lunch especially. Great for carry out also.

I almost always get a tuna melt and/or a smoothie, but they have tons of items to choose from. They do a good job of advertising nutritional information even if not all of the items are "healthy", but at least you know what you are...More

Don't think that this Panera is a fast food place. It's another business that's apparently trying to cut costs by seeing how few employees they can have working and still make a profit. As a result, you'll be waiting for a while to order and...More
