We were going to the Ferguson Center for the Arts to a show and stopped at this location in a strip shop area across the street. We have always liked Panera Bread. We ordered one bowl of Broc and Ched soup that comes with a French baguette. I got the combo of two items of 1/2 bacon and turkey bravo... More

Had breakfast here prior to leaving for a trip. This Panera is very close the Newport News Airport. I had the ham and cheese souffle and a plain bagel with butter. My hubby had the artichoke souffle and an asiago bagel with butter. We stood back at the pick-up counter to get our food, rather than waiting for them to... More

I had a soup and sandwich combo. It was delicious. Great, fast service. The meal was brought to my table. Healthy options are available as well as comfort food.

Tried Panera for the first time in my life one rainy morning, and loved it! It was pretty busy, so the noise level was not exactly for quiet concentration, if that were one's goal, but the service was cheerful and helpful. I really enjoyed the chai and pastry combination. I would like to try out several of their options, as... More

I needed a driving break and pulled in here to get coffee, a scone, and to make several phone calls. It was easy to find with my auto GIS. The site was well laid out, clean, and the waiters were courteous. Like all Panera Bread locations, the food was predictable and good.

Good selection. Sliced for free. Great service. Great bread that everyone loved. I'm sure to go back next time I need bread for a large group.

Awesome place to go and meet friends. You can go for lunch, dinner or breakfast, always welcoming staff, clean and good food. Some things are pricey but you can always choose something from the menu that goes with your budget.

Have been a regular at this Panera location (several visits a month) since it opened. Hoped they had worked the kinks out of their new system, so gave them a try this morning for breakfast. The line of customers was out the door. They were well stocked with food though (which was good since at my last visit they were... More

I frequent this Panera regularly. They consistently deliver courteous service and tasty food. The restaurant is almost always busy but kept very clean and orderly, including the restroom. Sometimes it's nice to try a different restaurant just for variety, but there's also a lot to be said for an establishment that provides dependable service.
