Panera used to be a great place for a healthy lunch. They have become over priced and the quality of their food has decreased. My husband and I will not be back.

I go here often when I want to meet up with someone to have a meal whereas I don't have to rush out of my seat to accommodate someone else. I don't mind the noise because I may be a part of it! The food is always very good. If there is any discrepancy, they will take care of it... More

Our family eats here occasionally and it's pretty much average. I think their pastries are better than most of their meal selections. The food is definitely on the high priced side and the times I've been there, there have plenty of dirty tables. The restaurant is a little small too, so a number of the tables are either near the...

Their pastries and coffee are great. Don't bother with any of their food. I have tried almost everything and it's all loaded with salt. Great way to ruin food!!

I have gone to this Panera Bread three times. Each time I went there was always a problem. I did carry out all three times. First time I had been shorted chips and a soup but was charged for it. Second time I picked up the order for a large group, they did not get the order right and what... More

Nicer than some Panera's I have been to. Overall pretty much the typical Panera experience. Food is decent. Place is clean.

This is a great place to sit and relax with friends or alone with your laptop. The food is wholesome and the bread is fantastic. You have to serve yourself, but the staff is quite helpful. I have never had a bad meal at Panera. The seating is also very comfortable.

I just love this establishment. Everything is always fresh and prepared when you order. What can I recommend? the Chicken Dijon Panini is excellent, also love the strawberry smoothies and you just can't beat the Asiago cheese bagels. Pretty sure you will love what ever you try. Oh and the Tomato soup which is only served fall/winter is the perfect... More
