From getting my order wrong to the oh so bland sandwich and lukewarm soup my lunch was just plain bad. Chicken soup had lumps of slimy chicken fat in it. Yuck.

I have been going to Panera's for years and I like it more and more every time I go there. Their salads, sandwiches, and soups are all to die for. My favorite sandwich is the Sierra Turkey, my favorite salad is the Thai Chicken salad,...More

For me Panera is good but very pricey for what you get. The atmosphere is just okay and I personally just don't love it like others do. I do like some of their food and some are just okay. I just can't get over how...More

Service: • A small select group of personnel are very attentive. A larger number understand nothing about customer service. Management appears to be in the latter group. • Management recently adopted a policy of not brewing decaf coffee after 2:00 p.m.... ARE YOU KIDDING ME?...More
