For months I ve been eating at this Panera four or five times a week. I love it! During spring break it was predictably crowded (this is a tourist destination), but you can always find a table for one or two. Many of the staff know me by name, and they re always cheerful and helpful. Like Paneras everywhere, the food is always great.
I'm not so sure about the other reviews here, but either my family and/or I eat at the Destin Commons Panera location at least three times per week (often daily). The staff is courteous and nearly always smiling. I know many of them by name. I have rarely waited more than three minutes for my food, which has always been prepared well. The only negative comments I would offer are (a) sometimes overly crowded, especially during tourist season; (b) sometimes slower WiFi/Internet speeds (also during tourist season); and (c) rarely under-staffed at the counter, which typically only occurs early in the morning when other business owners are placing large carry-out or catering orders (which I have also done). I think that this is my first Yahoo restaurant review despite having been a Yahoo account member since 1996. I hope that it helps and offers a more accurate review of one of my favorite regular places to eat and order coffee.
Although the food at Panera is usually good. I thought the customer service was horribly. I order and paid for a breakfast sandwich at 10:32. Waited for 10mins, then went looking for my food. I was told they stop serving breakfast food at 10:30. Was given my money back and told I could order something else. HUH-Why would I?
Why take the order and money at 10:30? Why doesn't your computer cut off breakfast order at a certain time? Why did I have to seek you out to find out you weren't going to make my food?
Manager had no real answer and no sense of taken care of a customer when they made the mistake.
DONT GO THERE!!!
