“What's not to like about Paneras”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Quiches are great. They have a new roasted tomato. They always change the menu. The blueberry scones are excellent. And their Chai Latte is the best around. But order it with "less foam" or you'll end up with half a cup of foam and the rest tea.

“Little Sammy in Sarasota”
Reviewed 3 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. It was nice that they had 2 registers open to take orders, since the restaurant was very busy. Seating was abundant and the food was scrumptious.

“Consistent Service”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

The food is has consistent flavor and presentation. Which is impressive because of how busy this Panera Bread is. The employees are always helpful and friendly... wow! I have never seen a frowning employee here. I always get the Italian Combo with Asiago Focaccia Bread. And my favorite dish is their Broccoli & Cheddar soup.

“Great Location”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

We just finished a day at The Ringling and wanted a place where we could sit and rest for a while.
Panera had a welcoming atmosphere. The cashier was helpful answering questions about various items on the menu.
The service was fast and the soup, pasta and salads were delicious.
