Great soup and sandwiches

I have only ate here twice and have loved everything I've tried. This time I had the Frontega Chicken Panini it was delicious I am not a bread kind of person but this bread was so good. I also had the Chicken Sorrentina Pasta very good and tender . The only reason I gave it a 4 star is because... read more

This is basically lunch food and my husband and I paid $22 for the 2 of us to eat. I wasn't impressed. We had never been there before and the girl working the register seemed annoyed when we asked questions and didn't order quickly.

Maybe I get there too early or maybe too late.They are always out of what I want.I think the labels on the wall menu have been there since they opened a few years ago.They need to pay their people more because they certainly aren't focused on the customer.

We ordered our food online. They sure make the food look really good with those amazing pictures! I ordered their Steak and white cheddar Panini. My sandwich was not really good for the price I paid. Their meat was really skimpy, greasy and had no flavor. Plus the bread was old. I also had their carrot cake with walnuts (it... More

Panera is always a great idea. You can get healthy, tasty soups, breads, pastry and drinks. The cheddar bacon soup is worth a sin and the broccoli soup is also loved by veggie haters. Fresh individualized sandwiches give you the chance to eat what you were graving for and if you are still hungry after your meal...the pastry, cakes and... More

Love to have Sunday morning coffee and pastry, problem being, hard to choose which one. I also love the egg tart, not sure what it is called. Made with egg, cheese and usually bacon or spinach. Served hot in a tart container.

The food is decent and the portions are satisfactory. the bill for two of us was a little over $20, which I consider high for two 1/2 and 1/2 meals and one beverage. I would think $15 would be more in order. I do need to mention that the Bistro French onion soup was very thick and tasted a little... More

I'm stuck on the Frontega Chicken sandwich and Creamy Tomato soup combo. It's a bit pricey but better food than its primary competitor. When I can't decide where else to have a meal, this is my default place to go.

Its a nice place. Typically I spend more than I like to here, menu is a little pricey but food is good. Would also like to see a little more variety. Usually I just stop by for the wildberry smoothy. Yumm!!
