I had a fairly decent caprese salad at a local Panera's, but the soups are definitely not made on the premises and the sandwiches are iffy. For fast food, though, it could be worse.

    I'm on the same page as HJ above.

    Bread is good. Soups I enjoy, especially the chicken, rice and mushroom soup.
    Prices are VERY high for the product delivered, especially the sandwiches. I'll take a Wawa in a dollar for dollar battle, but that's not quite "apples to apples."
    I consider it the "starbucks" for sandwiches. You pay extra for the cozy/posh environment, not the food ....

    It's your money.

      Panera (aka St. Louis Bread Company), IMHO has always had pretty good food, although it is a bit overpriced.

        I went there for the first time a few weks ago, as a business colleague asked me to meet there. If I had one word to describe the food I'd say "SALTY". I had a soup and sandwich and both were really salty.

          My Wife and I ate there once, I will probably never eat there again willingly pretty expensive for a sandwich that had 1 flimsy piece of cheese and cold cuts that were sliced god knows how long ago.

            We have one in the next town over, I went there one morning craving a spinach parmesan bagel only to be told they were a seasonal item & no longer on the menu. Jerks.

              I have spent a bit of time at the Panera in my son's school's town, waiting around to pick him up. The coffee is very good and I enjoy the bagels. I have a salad for dinnier one night which was not bad. This one also have free internet so I get some work done and check my email!

                I go for the Asiago Cheese and Cinnamon Crunch bagels. I like their catered sandwiches better than some of the other stuff I've had foisted on me. At least the pickles, kettle chips, and cookies are always good!

                  I would give them a 6-7. Atlanta Bread seems to be a notch above in both bread and meals.

                    Sorry but meant to add the location in Charleston, TN is best avoided. The Steak and Shake 1/2 mile past them is a better bet...scary?
