I joke all the time with my friends that the Panera by where we live should have a "Katie wing", with how much money I put into that business. The food is great and fast, not to mention healthy, and the customer service is amazing. For being a food joint that offers all different kinds of health foods and caters to so many different food preferences and needs, its cheap. Also, the app and the Panera card are the best things ever. GET A PANERA REWARDS CARD. I got free bagels each day for a month, not to mention a whole other slew of rewards.
Panera bread has amazing food! I used to work as a baker for Panera Bread and I honestly miss the work. Getting to make all of the fresh breads and the amazing cookies and treats was actually very rewarding. The food is incredible and always super fresh. Produce is delivered fresh every night. They have a little bit of everything on their menu so no matter how picky you are, you’ll find something you’ll enjoy. Their pastries and cookies are to die for. Highly recommend eating at this fine restaurant!

This is a healthy fast food option that has great quality food and drinks. I go almost weekly, whether it's for a breakfast bagel or lunch. I am completely obsessed with the Whole Grain bagel and Honey Walnut cream cheese, as we'll as their Mango Smoothie and Broth Bowls. Although their smoothies are very expensive for the small size you get, the Mango is decently good. They have vegetarian options, so this is one of few fast food places I can go when on the run. 9/10 recommend.

I used to like Panera however I’m not a huge fan anymore. First off i believe it is expensive. Although you are getting more quality and a little bit more healthy food, it’s still expensive. I also find that the food isn’t always the same quality from store to store. I can go to the Panera in my hometown and have a great experience but when I go to the one near my school, the food isn’t the same and overall I feel like it’s a waste

My favorite restaurant! I go here anytime I have a little time to myself for the perfect "mom cation". The food is delicious! My go to meal is The You Pick 2 option. I get the chicken frontega with avocado and broccoli and cheddar soup! It's the most delicious meal ever. I love the green tea as well. I would recommend this place to anyone! Be sure to sign up for the free rewards program!

One of our favourite places for lunch! Quick and easy and has good healthier options too. I love how you can ‘pick 2’ to make up a meal such as half or 2 different sandwiches or a half sandwich and half soup if your having trouble deciding exactly what you’d like!! The lemonades are amazing too- you have to try them! And it’s great that you can pick bread, apple or chips as a side with each meal. Go check it out!

Panera has slowly but surely grown on me over the years. I used to think it was entirely overpriced for what you got, but then once I became a super busy grad student with no quick and healthy food options, Panera became my go-to. Their food is fresh and consistently delicious, and their coffee is also surprisingly good (obviously needed with my grad student exhaustion level).

Finally, it is one of my favorite places to go when I want to eat something and then study, because there are plenty of small tables to sit at for quite a while and I have never felt like I was being eyed up for sitting too long or like I was taking away valuable seating from other customers. It's a super cozy chain that actually makes you feel really comfortable staying there longer than it takes you to eat your meal.

Clean food at an affordable price and a lot of options.  I have my Book Club meet here quarterly because Panera provides space and the atmosphere for a meeting as well as offering hot and cold drinks, entrees or desserts.  There is something for everyone.

panera bread is awesome! it’s a great place to study, (not at dinner time though, then there’s always little kids jumping around) great place to eat, and great place to eat with friends and family! usually, most of their staff is great, plus they’re asiago cheese bread is THE BOMB (unfortunately they almost never have it, because everyone else thinks it’s great too)

I used to love Panera. I still enjoy some of their meals, but the portion sizes and prices have been a concern as of lately. They have seem to change the way that they present things and the presentation hasn’t been as good either it seems when I get delivery it’s not I’ll put together they’re always forgetting things

I'm so hooked on the everything bagel that I rarely try anything else. Anybody have any recommendations that are not bagel-related?
