    I was disappointed to discover that the bread had changed for cold sandwiches, it was great before. Also disappointed that they no longer have hot chocolate on the menu as well. It wasn't too late, and there were VERY few options for bagels. I wanted some hot chocolate and raisin or other bagels, but no luck. Two items that I preferred, no longer on the menu. Guess I'll have to go elsewhere.

    Great location, friendly, and accepting cash, plus fresh food that is yummy healthy. The salads 🥗 are pretty good and mac-n-cheese. However, prices went up quite high. Free parking.

    This is one of the better Panera locations that I’ve been to across the Los Angeles and Orange County areas. Why? The short version: it’s clean here, has massive indoor space (38 indoor & 7 outdoor tables), the consistency/accuracy of food, management actually caring about how the store looks, as well as the timeliness of the orders coming out. Management and crew do an exceptionally good job here. A bit more detailed review. The most important factor to me: cleanliness. There are no strange/lingering odors. There is no trash/animal hair/crumbs/debris on the floor. It looks like it gets vacuumed every day or every other day at least. And they wipe down the tables on a regular interval throughout the day. I can’t tell you how many Paneras I go to and the carpets/floors are just filthy. It looks like you could catch something just by picking up your pencil off of the floor in those other places. The next most important factor for me is the ability to get a table regardless of the time of day. Even though sqft of this Panera isn’t crazy huge, they designed the layout of the seating area well. There are at least 38 indoor tables, 12 of which are cozy booth style, 1 of which is a large group/family style table that seats at least 12 people, approx 4-6 small group tables (seats 4 people, so you can really spread out), and the rest are individual/small tables. Plenty of options to. They have about 7 small tables outside. The other factors I mentioned above are not a big deal for me as I don’t mind waiting to get my food and I’m not picky when it comes to mistakes. But from what I notice, orders get completed in a timely manner and I rarely see or hear complaints from p-offed people. As you can tell, I spend a lot of time here studying and notice things. I wish they would just close later (like 9:30/10pm). The place is consistently filled with people well up until the last minute of closing. But they are nice and let people finish their meals. Labor costs and the increased chances of homeless people loitering later in the night - are most likely the reasons why they cannot close later. But if they wanted to, and advertised later hours, they would become a hot spot. The only study/dining spot in Pasadena that would be open after 9PM (that is both safe and offers quality food options). This area generally has some homeless people wandering around, but the store is away from the main street so they could potentially avoid that same issue that plagues most Starbucks cafes here. All in all, they do a good job here.

    This chain bakery and restaurant stands strong in the midst of multiple new cafe openings. I love their salad and sandwich combos as well as their bagels and cream cheese . They also customize breakfast sandwiches so it’s a win win for breakfast.

    This is a nice Panera Bread. It's clean and the staff is friendly. I love their Smokehouse BBQ Sandwich $9.49 and I love that it comes with chips. They offer many specials and promo codes for saving money with easy online ordering and fast pickup. A nice place to grab lunch and hang out.
