After a long day of traveling, a little soup and bread hit the spot. This Panera was just down the street from the Quality Inn where we were staying. Good, fast service too.

We are veggie Indians, and we had a nice time here. The hot burgers (panini) and soup were very good. Best place to go if you are a vegetarian

The first thing you see, walking in to Panera Bread is the fresh baked breads, bagels and other bakery items. Then there are the soups and sandwiches. No matter what one chooses, the food is good. I usually take muffins and bagels home with me and enjoy the visit again the next day. There is always a new menu item... More

My husband usually doesn't like panera, but I do so he came with me anyway. He got the steak sandwich and was pleasantly surprised at how flavorful it was. The service was thorough and friendly, the peach smoothie I got tasted very yummy, and I very much enjoyed the creamy tomato soup. The french baguette that came with the 'you... More

I want a place that is consistent regarding food and service and this Panera is far from consistently good. There is exactly one cashier that is uniformly helpful. They run out of BREAD and bagels often times before lunch. Portions are miniscule compared to the prices and the food is just not amazing to justify that. Their Cinnamon Crunch bagels... More

The half a sandwich was seriously less than half and over priced is the nicest thing I can say about it.

When "Bread" is in the name of the restaurant you think sandwiches, and you'd be right. But you'd also be right if you thought great soups and great salads. I like the Asian Chicken Salad as it has all the good stuff in it. I also like chicken salad sandwiches there. Go early in the day and you can get... More

I've been here twice, once because I was starving and it was the only easy restaurant around that was not mall food. The salmon sandwich was a cold slab of fish between some boring pieces of bread. Very little flavor. If I'm ever starving in the area again I think I'll just try some of their breads, they at least... More

I really enjoy this cafe. Whenever I am in the mood for deli-style choices or a little treat from the bakery I waste no time heading down to Panera's. They have a relaxing atmosphere with soft invigorating jazz music playing nicely for ambiance. There is always a little sample of a few select breads to try as soon as you... More
