My wife enjoyed this prime location (International Blvd) Panera on several occassions. It's not CC's or anything that attracts kids. It was a welcome refuge from the Disney-ish storm of children.

Of course the food was consistent --it always is at Panera-- and the service was faster than McDonald's. Ahhhh serenity now...

Panera is the only chain we found in FL that lists the calories in all of its food & drinks, plus they have half portion options on many of the salads, pastas & sandwiches.
I did find it amusing that this apparent attempt at offering a healthier menu still included single pastries with 600 or more calories and an over emphasis on bread & pasta, ie carbs & gluten.
I found a half size pasta dish & a modest pastry was fine for my modest appetite, the Chai Tea Latte was nice but over sweetened. The Thai chicken salad I chose on a second visit was generous even as a half portion & over complicated, too many ingredients competing for my taste buds. My wife's toasted half sandwich looked slightly sad & small in comparison to my half salad.
Panera's decor is efficient & clean in that rather bland US chain fast food style, this probably doesn't do the chain justice as the food is probably healthier than most alternatives, (poultry is advertised as antibiotic free), & credit to them for bravely showing the calorie content, now someone needs to put up big signs above the counter showing reasonable daily calorie allowances - 2,500 for men, 2,000 for women.

Although the food is excellent, the price is too high, the environment is average (but very clean). The service was average and the amount of bread (sandwich) was half of any other restaurant.

Wow! I eat at Panera all the time at home, but I have never been this impressed by a store. The baguette was freshly baked and perfectly soft. The service was top notch. The baked goods were well stocked. I have never seen a store as well stocked as this one. If you are sick of amusement park food, this panera is a good option to eat at. It is also conveniently located across the street from sea world.
