I enjoy both breakfast and lunch at this restaurant. Although their bagels are not as good bagel shop, the setting and comfort of the restaurant can make up for the difference.

Varied selection, good "toothy" taste with plenty of crustiness, and Olde Worlde flavor!

I will not be returning to this particular location...I've been to Panera Bread before and liked it, but this one in Lake Forest smelled, was dirty and had fruit flies everywhere, even in the cookies case! yuck

Panera Bread is delicious! I would recommend the corn chowder bread bowl. Clean and comfy. A must try.
