I had breakfast at this Panera Bread two mornings during my stay. Excellent location downtown Nashville. The food is a standard staple for Panera Bread. I know what to expect from Panera Bread and this store did not disappoint. The staff at the counter is infused with genuine Southern charm and they have a way of making the start to... More

I was glad to see this Panera Bread that was just a stone's throw away from the Ryman Auditorium. The service was super quick and helpful and made the visit really pleasant.

I'm visiting from out of state. I was looking for a bowl of soup in a quiet place vs a noisy bar with a loud band. I ran across Panera Bread. I am familiar with Panera Bread from my home state. This location did not let me down. It's set up, food and service is exactly what I've found at... More

I love the turkey chili. I frequently get Panera Bread gift cards from friends. One year I celebrated my 3 years ago, I even celebrated... More

Came by here and was hungry. Thought well I have never tried it. Got the Italian half sandwich and tomato soup. And got a lemon aide. Very reasonable cost. Every body seemed to be real friendly. And the best thing is free Wi-Fi

It's Panera..the same franchise that is in every other state. It's a good go to restaurant if you need a bite to eat.

We were downtown for the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium and decided to eat supper at Panera Bread. It was good, just what you would expect from Panera Bread. We had soup and a sandwich. I chose the tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich. It hit the spot for a cold night. The service was good and... More

You've been in a Panera. You know what its like. This one just happens to be near the Ryman and Broadway. It provides an oasis in downtown Nashville.

We visited this cafe a couple of times. Once was just for coffee but the other time we had a light lunch. Service was fast and efficient and the quality of the food was very nice. Good range of options available to cater for most requirements but do remember that this is a cafe and not a full restaurant. The... More
