Panera has great breads and bagels, I prefer them to the local bagel places in town, but what i really love is the choices for lunch. they have a great selection of soups, salads and sandwich's, it is always a treat to eat there

We have eaten at Panera for over 20 yrs - starting back when it began as St. Louis Bread Company in St. Louis. We've eaten at Panera locations all over the US, and I've never seen anything like this place. It has gone downhill in the last couple of years, to the point where it's always dirty, the restrooms are... More

We have been eating at Panera at the Eden Prairie Mall on Saturday nights about once a month for several months. The service on Saturday evening is terrible. They are always out of baguettes. They are frequently out of components of featured meals (chicken and hoagie buns were out this week). At least twice, there has not been hot water... More

With the 8 other people in here, you would think service would be efficient. I guess there is no manager or just mis-managed tonight. I went up at 22 min to check and was told it would be out shortly. Shortly? I should be leaving now after being done eating. Poor excuse for any restaurant. I would not recommend if... More

We stopped in for a light lunch - just soup and bread. The tomato I had was delicious, as always. The chili my husband had was very good - just enough heat to warm you up!!

Generally great food, and a nice place, good menu for soups and salads etc... The tables could do with a clean more and perhaps the floor, but generally hygiene was acceptable and nice place to eat.

We have been eating at Panera in many different locations (including this one) for years. The food is usually under $10 for a meal, and is good food fast. I don't know if someone came in and took out all the quality, but the service and the food were absolutely shocking this last visit. The soup was almost tasteless as... More

I really like Panera for salads and chili. I wish they had more gluten free options. These are very limited. The cookies are delicious, if you aren't gluten free.

First time eating at Panera Bread-yep I'm slow. I was impressed as I walked in-good looking and smelling breads and bagels on huge shelving behind the cashiers. I came in for bread. I ordered a pick two: 1/2 of a turkey avocado BLT sandwich & a spicy oriental chicken salad. My sandwich was average-I thought the hero would be the... More
