Panera Bread is always great any time of day or night whether it's just 2 of us or a small group. I love the "you pick 2" bargain. Any 2 of soup, salad or 1/2 sandwich can be paired together. The salad is supposed to be a 1/2 salad but it sure seems like a whole one. The food is... More

I go there often for a quick breakfast and also for lunch. Love their pasteries and also soups, sandwiches are also good. Not so crazy about their salads. Wish they would bring back the multigrain bread.

I admit to being a "Panera Fan," but I just wish they could be more consistent. Our neighborhood Panera (Clearwater on 580) can be exceptional at times, but then really subpar. They need to offer more than one broth bowl (and it's bad), and more varieties of bread. The sandwiches and salads are excellent, parking is good, but depending upon... More

I love that I can have "clean" food while traveling so I always find the nearest Panera and this one did not disappoint! Staff was great and food was very good. Very close to the beaches!

I love their bread and thin apple pie salads or sanwiches are always good and staff very young and friendly.

As with other Panera locations, this one offers great self-serve coffee and a variety of bagels. Unfortunately, sometimes by mid-morning they run out of my favorite bagels. The lunch menu of soups and sandwiches is very good and the prices are reasonable. Personally, I think the inside booth seating is a little cramped, but there is other seating available. Overall,...

It's easy and fast and the best soup in town. Also a great selection in the bakery dept. if one wants dessert.

We have had carry out twice so far from here. Always crowded but not a long wait. Service is fast. People are friendly. We love the chicken salad sandwich. Will have to work really hard to move away from that and try something else, everything is fresh and they don't skimp. Easy parking.
