Usually, this is the place where I eat breakfast with my oldest daughter on a weekend morning. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Like many other customers in the area, I consider myself to be a regular to this particular Panera Bread in Gastonia, NC.
The food items for breakfast are unique, but simple. As part of my diet plan, I like having the calorie count on the board next to items. That provides me with an informed choice of menu items. The "breakfast power sandwich" is: "All-natural egg — freshly cracked every morning — a thick slice of Vermont white cheddar and smoked, lean ham all grilled on freshly baked Whole Grain bread." This is a simple fair that I use a little bit of mayo and ketchup to dress. It's not a huge sandwich - and that's OK.
The bagels are good and the family prefers the 'everything bagel', the chocolate chip bagel and the just plain bagel. For coffee, I would recommend the hazelnut roast blend. This is a treat to my weekend morning.
The place is clean. The staff is super friendly. The food is good. I've been going for several years now, and just like other reviews - everything is consistent. There has been no downward trends. 5 stars across the board for this experience.
