I've frequented this place for years, and again on an April day my friend and I had our cups of coffee here. The indoor seating is diverse. Square tables, round tables, long ones for a group of more than five, booths, tables with high stools and a sofa around the corner for a lone patron. After getting my coffee, I... More

I have been eating at Panera restaurants in multiple places and for many years. Their food and service is usually excellent. Sadly, this Panera is far below par. The food was about the same as other Paneras - but they don't put out butter and when you ask for it at the counter, they only give you the fake stuff.... More

I have never gotten bad food here, it is all very good, but what I hate is the push to order, I have problems reading their menu and there are always a crowd around and behind you and the attitude of the workers is hurry up and decide, so I now avoid going here.

Food is very nice but bakery is wonderful yet a little pricey. I like the slight hint of bustle and yet many groups visiting.

We eat here approximately 2x a month. Always a great meal. The bread bowls are awesome, but too much for me to eat. So a cup of soup & baguette is great size for me. The broccoli cheese soup is my fav.

Tables were in need of being cleaned. I had to find a worker to do so. Floors were in need of vacumning. The table I was at looked like someone smashed a sugar cookie on the floor. When I told the employee, her response was ya, it gets messy in here. Didn't even attempt to clean it up. I understand... More

I ordered the Tuscan chicken panini and the chicken and ham was very cold. I complained and they remade it. The second time around it was still cold. I spent about 30 dollars there with my fiancé and son .... For a cold " hot " panini .... Never again. Booo
