Had a lunch with business friends here. Enough parking, quick service, well prepared sandwiches and above all an overall short lunch time. The moment you leave Milwaukee there is not always a guarantee that there is a restaurant so this serves its purpose

Such a variety to choose from. The breads are amazing and I'm very happy all their food is not preservative free. This company goes beyond mandates to provide us with wholesome selections. I eat here as often as possible.

We eat here every once in awhile. But every time we've eaten there the food was really good. Their sandwiches are made to order n are very fresh. Soups are good n seem homemade.

Located in a strip mall, this Panera is the most popular and busiest one in Wisconsin. The staff is courteous, the service is always efficient, and the place is clean. We conduct a lot of business meetings here. Everything on the menu is delicious, although we do enjoy the soup/sandwich combinations. If you can't find a place to sit (it's... More

Went here with some business associates for lunch. I have to admit I’m not a big Panera fan and probably would not have gone on my own, but as it turns out the salad I had with chicken was excellent. It had a mix of things like apples, nuts etc. with some perfectly cooked chicken strips on top. My only... More

Always a good choice for a quick meal. Constant updates to their menu make it worth visiting on a regular basis. I enjoy the breakfast sandwich as well as the soup, sandwich, or salad combo for lunch.

We needed to eat quick before a performance and chose Panera because we new the service would be quick and the food flavorful. We had 3 people in our party and one had soup and salad, another a sandwich and the third had a hot casserole dish. All were enjoyed emmensily.

Panera Bread's are popping up everywhere. I stopped at this one for lunch. Service was good. I love their sandwiches and their salads. Their bread is always so fresh. This time I tried their new Soba Noodle Chicken Bowl. I did not like this as well as I have their other dishes. The portion was rather small and it was... More
