Love the food & atmosphere

I love bringing my laptop and enjoying a hot bowl of broccoli and cheddar cheese while I work. Food is always good and the service isn't too shabby.

Just good food at a fair price, whether it's the soup, sandwich or more. The bakery is always worth a look. Oh, if you need cozy getaway so you can work on your Tablet or Laptop, this is the place.

This place was a ghost town! Used to be crowded and had to stand in line, but no more. I wanted their "Pick Two" - a half sandwich and a half salad and with drinking only water, the bill came to over $10, so I opted for only a turkey lunchmeat sandwich and water and that came to $8 --... More

I came in tonight to get a yummy soup in a bread bowl dinner. I had a 5 minute wait to take my order and that was not due to a line it was due to a lack of staff. The young lady who took my order was very sweet & lively. The manager was standing nearby & seemed very... More

Panera was pretty good for lunch. We had the pick 2 special and we each got a sandwich and soup. The meal was decent and we stopped by the bakery on the way out and picked up some additional sweets for later. I like that you can get your soup in a bread bowl. No complaints but I'm not itching...

Went here for the first time today, the soup and salad were very good, the service was very good and the building was very clean. I will eat here again when in the area.

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.

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... More
