While in the area, my wife and I were looking for a quick, light meal for dinner. We saw Panera Bread and decided that was a good choice. We got there a little after five, so there weren't too many folks dining yet. We placed our orders, filled our beverage glasses and found a booth. The dining area was clean,... More

Usual chain restaurant, but food is prepared above others I have been to. Made for a very good late evening dinner after a long day and not wanting to travel far from my hotel.

Stopped in during a long ride back from Florida (to CT). Food was good, eating areas were clean, and staff was very friendly. Two standouts - they had a great selection of iced teas and an outdoor eating area! I highly recommend this Panera. Make the stop off of I95 in Colonial Heights, VA!

Nothing special, your usual Panera fare. Sometimes staff is great other times not so great. Parking is horrible, feels like people camp out for ages, this store is not big enough for that. I don't go here at lunch time but I know a lot of the crowd gets their meal to go because there are not enough seats.

Presentation was good. My food was luke warm (wonton soup). My lil one got a grilled cheese and apple. They did a crap job at cutting the apple for her, leaving the core and seeds. They shouldn't ask if they are gonna serve it with the steam, seeds and core still on it. IMO. Husband got the broccoli cheddar soup.... More

I use this Panera all the time. Love the food for their healthy options. People who work there are nice and efficient. CONS: always busy/crowded so they don't have the time to clean tables. You may have to jump on one as someone is leaving and do it yourself. No drive thru either, and very small parking lot. Doesn't stop... More

Only one person at the counter to take orders, so had a to wait a while to give my order. But, the young man was helpful, friendly and efficient. My quinoa greek salad was very good, and enough for a second meal.

I had a monthly meeting with one of my fellow Board members. My coffee was delicious and made to order and I had a large selection and variety of pastries. It was easy to find a corner to have a meeting and there was wi-fi.

This Panera Bread is a good option if you are staying within the area. I've found Panera bread to be a good choice to meet the needs of any food preference. I personally would suggest the tomato soup and the grilled cheese. The prices are reasonable and the service is excellent.

Thank Matt P
