Was just there a couple of days ago for dinner with a friend. We have always had great food and customer service consistently at various Panera Bread locations across the country - including this one - but this was just not a good visit. The store manager (bearded gent) was very friendly and kept the line moving well. However, two... More

There is a Panera near my house, but I like this one in Exton. I like the layout of the restaurant. It is very clean and the staff is friendly. Good parking, too.

If a definition of insanity is "doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different outcome" then it is time for us to find a different breakfast place. Inevitably when we arrive about 8 AM on a Friday, the coffee urns are empty. The time tags indicate between 7 & 7:15 AM. Today was the absolute worst in... More

Their breakfast sandwiches and danish treats are delicious However, what sets this place apart from other eateries is the superb customer service. Shannon even remembers her customer names and what they previously ordered. Highly recommend.

I have been eating at Panera Bread for at least 13 years. The Exton location is very convenient to my work, so I often dash over for lunch. Staff is friendly. Dining in can be a challenge, but I do so in the winter. Using online ordering is easiest, but sometimes there still is a wait. Prices have risen, but... More

It was a toss up between between two places to get something to eat so we chose Panera Bread. I ordered the Roasted Turkey and the caramelized Kale on the Panini Bread. The Turkey may have been roasted at one point in time, but it was horrible to say the least. One half of the sandwich had one slice of... More

Food was good typical Panera. Always solid as Panera usually does food that is consistently the same quality. Place is always busy.

Love the scones and bear claws at Panera. Service is fair. Half and half carafe more often than not needs to be filled. Friday mornings very busy, often coffee urns empty.

To the point on my last 2 visits we have been disappointed with the sandwiches. My last trip was just that. I ordered the Tuna sandwich on the menu which sounded great. When my sandwich came it was all lettuce with less than a very small tablespoon size serving of Tuna. When I pointed it out to the manager he... More

I have come here with a friend regularly for the last couple of years. Recently I came back in after having been away for 6 months because they had done away with the Southwestern and Thai flatbreads. Actually the Thai flatbread was back but they have raised the prices for all their items enough so that I will not return.... More
