Good food--nice menu selection. The cappuccino is excellent. The roasted turkey BLT on sourdough was excellent. Very good food and economical prices.

I always eat at Panera when I find one. I'm comfortable with the atmosphere and I like knowing what I'm getting.

Yes, it is a chain, but they do things right. Have eaten lunch here about six times & every time we have enjoyed it. Fresh salads, delicious sandwiches & the bread... Fabulous!

It is what it is. Why do they serve bread with a sandwich? It's clean, has wifi, it's air conditioned in summer.

I, too, used to go all the time - always for takeout, and always the same thing: chicken caesar sandwich & mac n cheese. Usually have to ask for the complimentary baguette/chips side and utensils after they've handed me my take away bag, which is frustrating. As previous reviewer said, I often rearrange my own sandwich once home (could be... More

We used to go two or three times per week but lately the quality of sandwich has been disappointing.

I had an egg and cheese on ciabatta bread and OJ and my husband had a bear claw and coffee. It was very tastey. First time at Panera and I'll go back.

I once loved Paners, for their great bread and hearty sandwiches. The last 2 times I've eaten there, the bread was nothing special- dry and just average.

Nice Patio, staff kind. Decent menu options for breakfast sandwiches. Could use a few more. But figure it is a corporate thing. Would return.
