Love to go to Panera when the weather is cold for their Broccoli Cheese soup! This location has a bit different menu than my local Panera but it was still good. Staff was fun and friendly while we took forever to order. Food was fresh...More

We love Panera generally, but the last couple of times we have eaten at this location we have been disappointed. The staff is friendly but careless when filling your order, so be sure to check it especially if you are getting carryout. This is the...More

You can't beat Panera for healthy and tasty food - whether you are in a hurry or have time to relax. I really enjoyed the Thai Chicken Broth bowl. It was only 290 calories but very filling!

If you like eating and looking a strange characters, the non-threatening and amusing types, then Panera is your place to drop by and have a sandwich and coffee. Nothing bad to say here. It is amusing and we like to pop in now and then.

I like the food for Bristol its not a place you'd expect to see. So I'm happy to see better quality fast foods. Soups are good. Salads are consistently fresh. Coffee is good. I like their breads but often when you order stuff to go...More
