Not worth a second try for us

I'm a panera addict but they were out of several things that I typically eat. I'm not sure how a restaurant runs out of a popular pasta that so many eat. Isn't there someone that keeps inventory and says "hey, we're down to two boxes of pasta, that typically lasts us X amount of days so we better... read more

good choices....sandwiches, wraps, salads...veggy and fruit. Lots of beverage and soup choices. Tables kept very clean. Recycling encouraged. Seasonal specials highlight "in-season" ingredients

Always delicious bagels, coffee for the morning. Always quick in and out when you are on your way to work and stop for the bagel packages. Not too expensive.

well first off they screwed up the order. Then when i let them know about it, they gave me a hard time about changing it! I was so surprised, it was like they thought i was trying to scam them. I didn't eat the food, i complained right away and still I was treated like a scammer. No more Panera... More

I totally misunderstood their menu. I thought I would get a 1/2 sandwich and a small salad for $5.99. I got a huge salad (with a french baguette), which was good, and a 1/2 Napa Almond Chicken sandwich with a plop of meat on the center of the bread. It was also good if you like it all in the...

I have been to this restaurant several times and never had a problem. The food is consistently good but on my last visit this place had not enough space, is annoyingly loud, and had a bottleneck where you get your food and drinks. Won't be back; too many other choices nearby.

I stopped in at Panera today to meet three other people for a bite to eat and have a business meeting. Asian chicken panini was what I ordered and it was the worst I have ever ordered at Panera. The panini was dry, hard and tasteless. The chicken must have disappeared trying to get away from the panini on the... More

The Panera standard level of very good service and quality is upheld at this location. Sandwiches, salads and soup all were fres and tasted well.

Every time I go to Panera Bread I am disappointed in their food, which is very spicy, especially their soup. Their desserts were not much better, very dried out, especially their Danish pastries. It is only good for coffee it seems.

We just went here for a quick stop. The food was great, just like all of the Paneras. The service was really fast, despite the long line. I would recommend this location.
