Typical good Panera

This is a smaller Panera then the ones I am used to but it worked well. Food was cooked very fast and the employees were very friendly. The restaurant was clean. We had the new broth bowls which were very good. This is a typical Panera with good food. Glad this is available on my travels on... read more

Excellent service and good food - even a drive through! We went there for coffee in the morning and were pleasantly surprised with how good the latte's tasted.

Chicken noodle soup lacked noodles and chicken. MandM cookies are stale. Bagels were cooked stretched out like took some of the dough out? Sister found hair in the bottom of her bread bowl with soup

Had the apple salad-very good with great flavor. The fresh cookies were also out of this world. Can't wait to go again.

I love the soup in the bread bowl and enjoy it during the cold weather. The sandwiches are pretty good and I like the choices. The only negative is being behind someone who has never been at one before or has no idea what they want. Maybe they could have two lines...one for those ready to order and one for... More

What can be said? It's Panera Bread! Great location just off the Interstate that opened last year. Whether you're hungry for a bowl of soup and salad or sandwich....maybe just a dessert it's a nice place to eat.

I guess when yo go to Panera, you know it's going to be expensive, but when I tried a steak, blue cheese salad and lemonade, I suffered from "sticker shock". As for the taste though, it was VERY GOOD! So if you want to open your wallet pretty wide, but also enjoy great tasting fare, Panera is a good place... More

I think of this as an enjoyable place to sit and enjoy eating a nice meal. The original sites around St. Louis really attracted us, but this local site is a nice place to have a relaxing meal.

This is a relatively new establishment, we went on day 4 and it was very crowded, in and out. All of the bread was out and open to collect all types of germs and such. We bought 4 and could tell they were starting to get old and stale-like. This was not a good first impression and we have not... More
