“Consistently Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Panera offers a nice variety of good food in a pleasant environment. For breakfast, I love the "Power Sandwich." It is quite tasty and satisfying for reasonable price and amount of calories. I have always enjoyed Panera's soups and sandwiches. My wife really likes their seasonal salads.

“Fast, Friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2013

Love this place as the service never disappoints. Most of the cashiers / servers are young, middle-class females, and generally have this chipperness about them that makes doing business here well worth it. They are the type of staff that can actually hold a conversation with their customers and make solid recommendations on menu items their patrons might not be familiar with.

I came in today while on a coffee break from field service and dealt with Katy - one of the cashiers. Not only was my food ready quickly, but it tasted delicious. She even threw in a free bag of potato chips when I had decided to order them at the last second (once she had already rung up my order).

Overall - this place is a popular spot for us to go on our coffee breaks, and we will keep coming as long as we get the same great service and tasty food.

“Impressed by this Panera”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2012

We had a lunch of soup and sandwiches here recently and found the food fresh and tasty and the service good. It was definitely a popular place on a Sunday lunchtime. I've been to other Panera's and been disappointed but not this one. My only gripe is that the portions are not large so there is nothing to take away for later!

“Always busy for breakfast and lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

Panera's is a meeting place for friends and business. Always see groups of people around computers using the free wi-fi. Excellent sandwiches, best bagels in town, cookies to die for and fresh breads. Good for lunch, breakfast and snacks at the Bowie Town Center.

“Manager was better than the staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2012

When we ordered they got the food wrong twice but as soon as we spoke with the manager things were done right.
