The mall location Panera has become our latest go-to spot for weekend breakfast/coffee after walks. However, as much as the food quality is reasonably consistent, the availability of such or how efficiently it is delivered wavers with the work crew. There are times that there is no flavored coffee available at all (and this is at 9 am), and you... More

Nice choice of sandwiches and salads and pretty good bread. We brought lunch in for a business meeting and it worked out well.

I don't get meals from Panera's but the bread is always first rate and fresh. The Pecan Rolls are also excellent, but not very healthy.

First, there is no doubt that Panera has signature entries that can not be had anywhere else, such as their cafe salads and sourdough bread.... More

I love the strawberry salad, which is only offered in the summer. It's really tasty and a big portion so you dont go away hungry. It is also reasonable in calories and fat, unlike many salads at a lot of restaurants.

I apologize for taking so long to review this Panera Bread location. It seems we ( my husband & I ) are always there. Just as recently as this past Monday, we went for lunch. I LOVE their Garden Vegetable Soup - it is low-fat and vegetarian. It is packed full of tasty veggies and the dollop of nut-free pesto... More
