Very convenient! You can order on line and it will be ready at an approved time. Great selections. We like this for a quick dinner.

It's simple. The food is excellent. The bagels are fresh and huge. I love getting these for our work meetings. They offer a few different spreads to put on them that kick it up a level. If you want to take some great food in for a work meeting . . . this is the place. But don't forget to... More

My colleague and I were attending a two-week class at Aberdeen Proving Ground so we were looking for a bakery to take some goodies into class for a promotion celebration. The local bakeries were closed so we opted for Panera. We picked up three dozen bagels and and a coffee cake. All were good but average

Very good wholesome food at reasonable prices. Free wifi, good coffee and great all year round. If there ever was an issue the management will make it right, but those are few and far between. Great sourdough bread and other baked goods.

We visited on a weekday afternoon and had lunch all around. They left the horseradish off of the sandwich that it's a standard part of. They didn't ask us for our Panera membership cards when we ordered our meals. Their coffee bar was completely emptied of anything except artificial sweeteners. Everything else was good. My usual Panera experience is a... More

I am not a fan of Panera restaurants. I have never had a outstanding meal there and the food is generally overpriced. The one in Bel Air is pretty typical and nothing to get excited about. Best for carryout when you are in a hurry.

Great sandwhiches, soup, and salads. Everything is fresh and all of their breads and pastries are baked on the premises

They have a good deal. Your can get two of the following for one price: salad, soup, or half sandwich. The food come out quickly and it is very good. The place sometimes gets a little crowded for lunch but the Bel Air location is a little bigger than some of the others.

This last time we went they had a Squash soup that was to die for. I could not get enough and a flatbread turkey and cranberry sandwich. It was a match made in heaven!

I went here to meet a friend for a late breakfast. When I went to purchase my usual sesame bagel I was dismayed to see that they were already out of them. I tried a new kind a bagel--sprouted grain--and it was delicious. Now it is my new favorite. We stayed so long we decided to have lunch as well.... More
