Stopped in at the Coral Ridge Mall Panera Bread to get my wife and daughter some soup. There was a single lane with 4-5 people waiting to place their order. I thought the staff member did a great job getting the line ordered and moving along. She greeted me with a smile, asked me if I had a Rewards number... More

I visited the Panera for dinner at approximately 7:30 PM. I observed the young man preparing the food with two clear plastic lids in his mouth prior to placement of one lid on to a customers cup of soup. I asked him about it and he assured me that he placed the lid that was on the outer portion of... More

Great location for breakfast just off I-80. Fast service, high quality choices, terrific hot coffee. Stop in on the way to a U of Iowa athletic event or a morning tee time.

I have always loved Panera's Asian sesame chicken salad, and my husband loved their roast beef with horseradish. Naturally, they got rid of both. I don't understand why restaurants feel the need to constantly change their menus knowing that people come because they liked what they had there and want it again. But that is a corporate issue. This Panera's... More

When I gave the clerk my order for a cup of the tomato soup she entered it in the register along with my choice of drink. She had a surprised look on her face and said that I actually could get a bowl of tomato soup for free and would only need to pay for the drink.

This is a nice Panera, but doesn't have much seating. You also have to pick up your meal unlike the one we have at home where you take a device to your table with you and they deliver it to your table. We always enjoy Panera's food.

Located about a mile south of I-80, Panera Bread is on the left side as you are headed south. Parking lot is smaller and traffic flow can be confusing. Fast service; friendly staff. The half and half options - soup/salad of soup/half sandwich - is the perfect size for a lunch while driving. Personally, I like their lighter soups and... More

My favorite Panera Bread. Best fresh bagels, since I left Bklyn, NY, yrs ago. Fresh dough comes in at 5:30 am from Chicago. Their sandwiches & soups are delicious & high quality. Their staff treats me like family & fast service. Don't mix them up with the Panera's on First Ave(Hayden Fry Way). Their bagels are doughy & gross, like... More
