My wife and I have been going to Panera Bread Cafe for years and will continue going in the future. We have a couple of favorite items on the breakfast menu that we like when we go there so we do not stray to much from our regular choices.

Panera is always considered a good place for lunch and we visit a number as we travel. No wait in line, but it did seem to back up several times. They give you a number and deliver to your table. Time to get our meal was a bit longer than normal. Had some issues with one of the drinks was... More

Stopped in for lunch with my daughter while we were shopping. Always friendly staff and great food. Surprised when the cashier informed me that I could add a tip. What?! We get our own drinks and bus our own table. Liked that I can fill my own lemonade at the drink bar now. Or choose from several types of tea.... More
