Love their pecan roll and also some of their sandwiches and soup. I usually order half Sandwich and soup combination platter. Sometimes their soup was luke warm but after complaints things are better now. There is a big line around lunch time but with enough registers, the line moves quite quickly. When the weather is nice, it's enjoyable to eat... More

Have eaten at Panera in 6 states and 12 cities and this is by far the worst. The employee I encountered should have been fired on the spot. Counter was busy and a call went out for other staff to come and take orders. Young woman who showed up was mad because she was called from break to wait on... More

The service is always so/so, but they have delicious soups. My favorites being the french onion, baked potato, and chicken and wild rice. I noticed that they only offer certain soups on certain days. I also really enjoy their bagels and spreads.

We arrived around 730 in the evening and the restaurant was almost empty. It did take us a few minutes to make up our mind as we had not been to a Panera in quite a while. The counter staff seemed to be very put out with our making them wait. When we finally decided our server "Keely" was anything... More

This place is so popular that you often have to wait in line for a long time. Pick your visit time carefully for Breakfast or Lunch. ( No Dinner) The wait is worth it. Its order service at the counter, and wait for collection, so check the order, sometimes they get it wrong. Unfortunately some people use it as their... More

Food was good, but they seemed to be short handed on help. Several Coffee containers were empty. Employees were working well, but they needed more people.

I am a big fan of Panera and each one has a little bit different personality. This location is a direct reflection of life in The Villages. I stopped in because I was early for a meeting and found the restaurant a bee hive of activity at 9:30 am. There was a line out the door, that moved quickly. The... More

We stopped here for breakfast and it was quite crowded. We had to wait in line for 20 minutes before we could get to the counter to place an order. By the time we reached the counter and ordered, it was a few minutes past the 10:30 AM stop time for breakfast. We were told breakfast could not be served...we... More

Starbucks is a quaint place to drop in for a quick snack & coffee, or even to have a leisure coffee with friends on their outdoor tables.
