Very nice. Dining room a little like an old Fresh Choice. Semi-self serve. Not a particularly friendly staff, busy and in business mode. Breads, salads, and soups are good, but not as spectacular as all my friends told me. Maybe because I know how to make this stuff from scratch and in more generous amounts. Small bowls, half sandwiches. I... More

Stopped in here before shopping. Line to order was about 10 deep and about 10 minutes long. Ordered our food and waited. They did not give out pagers and the kitchen was calling out names without a speaker system. It was very hard to hear the names. Please go back to pagers... Food was good as usual.

Big fan of Panera! Some of our favorites are their scones (orange)! and their Duet Chocolate cookie (available most of the year). Their bagels & spread are really good too. For sandwiches the Napa Almond is good and different! Also we like their Egg, bacon, cheese quiches. They have a loyalty rewards program and you earn things as you go.... More

I've only been there for lunch or late breakfast. But I keep coming back. You have to wait in line to order and they give you a pager to let you know when it's ready. Very efficient. Fuji salad is my favorite. Unique bagel flavors and outstanding cream cheeses.

Picked up a few bagels and some baked good. Always fresh and usually in stock. A couple of my favorites were gone even though it was only 8:30 AM which was a bit surprising. Maybe they were being made.

Good lunch food. Try to miss the lunch rush by getting there before noon or after 1pm, otherwise good luck finding a place to sit and eat. The food tastes fresh and the soup was delicious.

The design/concept of each restaurant in this chain is ingenious. Several different stations are set up to expedite service: sandiwiches/soups, baked goods, coffees/beverages. They offer a very healthy array of sandiwches/soups, fantastic coffee "beverages", and a superb bake shop. They offer a few vegetarian options, which is helpful. Kids in our family love it, so do adults. We have held... More

Panera is a great company with excellent breads and sandwiches and drinks, and that's why I patronize them.

I ordered the cafe salad and felt it was smaller than usual, and the baquette they gave me was defimately half the size it used to be. So even thought the quantity seems less, the quality was still there. The Greek salad was very good, but ask to have the dressing cut in half as there was just too much.... More
