An upscale chain

The salads, soups and sandwiches here are very good. In short this is a place to bring your laptop and have a good working lunch. The staff has never been overly friendly, but they are efficient which is perfect for a working lunch.

The service her is quick and fast. The place smells amazing when you walk in. The bread bowl soup has to be one of the best reasons to go here! Its quite amazing how they can get a bowl of bread to hold soup without leaking.

I like to stop relax, get a coffee, enjoy a cookie and their promotions! When you buy lunch you get a bakery item for $.99!

Panera prides itself on 'fast' food, but the menu offerings you'll find here are nothing like traditional 'fast food' restaurants. This is one of the most popular restaurants in Apple Valley, judging by the number of customers constantly coming through the door. A lot of business seems to be take-out, but if you seek pleasant, peaceful, dimly-lit seating in a... More
