The soups, salads and sandwiches are all very good. There's a great diversity in the menu so there should be something for everyone. It's a small chain so you will get the same at all locations. If you are on the go you will be in and out but you will no longer be hungry.

Overall healthy choices with fresh ingredients, and plenty of size and combo choices. Soups are usually good and the menu changes with each season. For a chain restaurant it is usually good.

You can't go wrong at Panera Bread in Ventura! The food is fresh & delicious & the employees are friendly, courteous & know the menu items very well. The restaurant is clean & bright. It is located in the Kohl's shopping center near Telepone & Main. It is within walking distance of the County Government Center & would work well... More

Casual, quick place to eat; not as crowded or noisy like other Panera restaurants.Salads were pretty good, the Thai Salad had more Mexican flavors than Thai, but I liked it. Breads and scones always great. Good selection of coffees and teas.

You can not go wrong eating at this Panera Bread restaurant! I have never had a bad meal here! One time they brought the wrong soup to my daughter and because it took a few extra minutes to bring, they gave her the wrong one free! She was delighted! Great service and great food, what more can you ask for!

I have been to other Panera Bread locations before, but the staff here is extremely friendly. The atmosphere was cozy and for once, I didn't feel like everyone was watching me eat. We came for brunch, and I really wanted their tomato soup. Unfortunately they don't start serving it until 10:30 am :( Instead, I got the egg white, avocado,... More

I have visited Panera Bread only once, and it was on the recommendation of a friend. Everything was very good except the price. We had sandwiches for lunch, and I felt the value was poor. This seemed to me to be a $6-$7 lunch, but we were charged close to $10. I will try them again and see whether things... More

Have eaten here several times and have always found the food to be consistent. I order the sandwiches and soups. Friendly staff, ingredients are fresh. I have no complaints, can totally recommend. The Italian combo is great.
