A bit short on the cheese fontega cheese sandwich and expensive. 1, 1/2 sandwich, a bowl of soup, a cup of soup, no drinks $26.14. Tasty though.

Not a big fan of Panera. Personally they can stop with everything except the bake goods. Not the staffs fault. This is a family oriented business. Locals flock to it and service is quick and friendly. I always stop in for fresh bread or a...bagel.More

Have eaten at Panera's many times. Always enjoy whatever I've gotten. Good soups, especially the chili! Love the chicken and avocado sandwich and the no sugar herbal beverage. Remember, you can get a cookie/pastry for $1 with your entree! My only complaint is that some...of the sandwiches are skimpy on the meat...... others have an adequate amount.More

Whether I am sharing a cup of coffee with a friend, having breakfast with my husband, or picking up a quick lunch or dinner, I can rely on enjoying them at Panera's. The environment is inviting, friendly and attractive and the food is clean, tasty...and well prepared. From hearty soups and salads to warm freshly baked breads and pastries, Panera always delivers! I frequently stop by to grab a salad and can order on my phone and have it ready for me through their convenient order/pick-up system. Hungry? Want to eat in a warm inviting atmosphere? Panera is for you.More

The place offers an outside area. The food meets the standards of the chain: one of the only chain restaurant in the US where you can get "healthy" food. Service is alright however my sandwich which was supposed to be a turkey breast avocado blt...only had a little piece of avocado in it which was disappointing...More

I usually give Panera a higher review but this time, I ordered oatmeal for breakfast and I was a little disappointed. It was kind of flavorless even though it had some extras in it. I wouldn't recommend it if you are an oatmeal lover. In...addition, the cup of watermelon I got seemed like it was cut right above the rind. More white than red and not so sweet. They have a nice selection of tea and my son enjoyed his coffee. Even though this was not the greatest experience, I do recommend the restaurant as a whole.More

Great place for coffee, and light food. A place to relax without pressure to vacate a table. Efficient and courteous counter service.

It's cafeteria-style all the way, but the servers at the counter are really nice and friendly and very efficient. Have been here many times and it never disappoints. I agree that there are too many people with lap tops taking up space that should go...to paying customers, but that is a small negative compared with the great variety of really good food choices. I love to go to this place for breakfast, but they have really good soups and sandwiches for lunch too. I especially love that you can get an apple instead of chips for a side with your soup or sandwich.More

The food is very good and so is the coffee. The only problem--way too many laptop junkies doing nothing but taking up space and TAKING HOURS to drink a single beverage. Too many folks using the restaurant for their office--they need to go to the...library or go home.More

Panera is great for a quick lunch or coffee in the morning or late evening. Or office often orders lunch to go. It seems like the Olney location forgets one or more items every third order. We check now at the store before leaving. Food...is consistent, no fancy but good basic food.More
