It's good quality but for the prices they charge you don't get much meat or cheese in the sandwiches. The kids grilled cheese you get one slice of cheese between two pieces of bread.

Panera has updated itself. New items on the menu and new way to order. You can skip the lines by using the self-serve kiosk. Don't be intimidated by them, they are easy to use. Just do not feel rushed. Take you time. It is worth it. The food is good based upon sandwiches, soups and salads. Don't miss the baked... More

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!!!!

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

Do not get me wrong. I like Panera Bread Co. Its fast food that is not fast feeling. You can get healthy food and soups at reasonable although not cheap pricing. The thing PBC has going for it is you know what your going to get before you go. So if you want lunch or dinner and don't want to... More

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
