Busy location with ample parking, great selection, great food!

This was the second time we've been to this location, and even though it was busy both times, we were able to go through the order line quickly, and find a table easily. Love the fresh bread, and other fresh ingredients.

Very attractive inside and out, efficiently run, very nice selection of sandwiches and baked goods, and reasonably quick despite being super busy on a Sunday morning.

This place is so good you don't mind standing in line because it just gives you more time to decide what to have! The bagels are excellent!! Sandwiches, soup, salad...lots to choose from. I really like their "pick 2" option where you can choose a salad -soup- pasta - 1/2 sandwich combo that works for you. Thanks for bringing back... More

Even though it is in a strip mall, it is always busy. It is clean, service is friendly and efficient. Most of all, it is efficient. Terrific!

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. My last few sandwiches had all the meat and cheese stacked on one side it was like oversized bread. While it was easy for me to open the sandwich and rearrange my meat and cheese to be evenly distributed its frustrating... More
