I have visited at least 30 Panera's across the country. I find them to be very customer friendly. I got the feeling I was bothering the guy at the counter, He needs training on first impressions

This location has good food with a helpful and friendly staff. They are located in a small strip mall, so the parking lot has limited parking spaces.

Stopped in around 3 p.m. Fewer than 10 customers already served and seated. No line at the cashier. Unfriendly, young, pony-tailed blonde apparently without the ability to smile, tersely asked for my order, took my money and placed my "buzzer" on the counter. Gave the indication she clearly had more important things to do. A real "snip." Order took about... More

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.

Today I had the Harvest Vegetable Soup- lots of fresh veggies topped with pesto and their new Turkey- cranberry Flatbread sandwich very good also only complaint was that there was too much flatbread for the amount of meat. My wife had the cream of squash soup with the Tuna... More

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!
