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... More

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.

I like going to Panera for the Soups and Sandwiches. Their Fresh Lemonade is also very good with free refills. I find that they are filling enough for lunch and sometimes a quick dinner. The atmosphere is pretty pleasant. Their is free wifi which is except for lunch allowed for unlimited use. The outdoor seating is also nice.

Stopped in on a Sunday morning for a loaf of sourdough. I was helped quickly. The bread is sliced thin, sandwich style, or thick. I ordered the thick and was given a nice fresh loaf of thick sliced sourdough bread. Quick and friendly service!

Panera doesn't offer enough variety for lunch, including healthy vegetarian choices. Yes, you can leave some things off the salad to make it healthy, but there is only really one vegetarian sandwich (and you have to ask to leave the cheese off). Kind of strange, because you'd swear going in that this is a healthy vegetarian kind of place. This... More
