Favorite go to spot

Great salads and sandwiches with pastries to top off. Pick two favorite with Asian salad and Fontaga chicken sandwich. Love the Chipolte mayo --quick pass hard to order from with orders always difficult to adjust--keep trying--good concept.

I decided to give the new special Soba chicken noodle soup the old college try, and was I disappointed! The soup had no broth , seriously this place needs to rethink the proportions of broth to noodles. I challenge anyone to find the broth once they take the soup to go!!!!

I love the Panara Sourdough bread and joining their rewards program is definitely worth the slight effort for the free bakery items and rewards.

While doing some last minute Christmas shopping we found Panera in the strip mall and decided to have some lunch. The restaurant looked new and was very spacious. Since this was our very first visit to a Panera's we were overwhelmed by the selections. One of the staff helped us navigate through the options and we both selected the special... More
