    Had a sandwich today ham with swiss ham was a cooked ham full of fat and grizzel not even slices chunks of ham full of fat one thin slice of swiss cheese it was so nasty I could not even chew it when you buy/purchase something it should be edible this was not the best part of the sandwich was the bread. If you are going to charge people $12 to $13 dollars for lunch it should be top of line meats and cheeses. I wish I could post my pictures of sandwich here but I cannot. The founder of this chain should go on undercover boss to see how bad things are at his stores.

    I would love for Panera to offer even one gluten free bread As having celiac disease, I rarely eat out because gluten free bread is hard to find. Being able to order sandwiches from Panera would be a real treat. Please consider.

    Actually had Panera yesterday for the first time. Yes, I know everyone has been there well not me until now. I went to the one on E.Jefferson Street in Bethesda I placed two orders for group soup for myself and a friend. I was told the pot of soup feeds 5 according to Panera bowl size it is 2.5 servings not 5. I could not get bread /just told we are out! Was treated very rudely by the pickup end because I did not know how the line worked.
    $17.99 for one small pot of soup not good value . Very Poor!
