lovely soups

We always enjoy our experience, at this location. Staff is friendly and the food always tastes great. The soups are delicious and the coffee is delectable.

Panera has a,problem with the portions of there product. If you get a salad you say where is it. Be prepared to be on a diet. I don't think there is a value my opinion.

I go to Panera all the time for my travels and usually order the same thing. When my full size salad came out, it looked more like the half size I get elsewhere. I even confirmed it was a full size with the kitchen guy. So, I probably won't be back here if I am hungry.

Fresh baked bread and pastries always makes me happy. The service is always on point. The environment is relaxing and cozy and the wi fi is plentiful!

I have eaten in a number of Panera locations. This one is only average. Staff okay but not as friendly as other locations. Food average compared to other locations.

In my opinion what makes Panera stand out is their fresh homemade bread. I have eaten here twice this week. First time I added a "bear claw". Fantastic!! Tonight I added a cheese danish. The best I've ever had.

Panera offers a nice variety of good food in a pleasant environment. For breakfast, I love the "Power Sandwich." It is quite tasty and satisfying for reasonable price and amount of calories. I have always enjoyed Panera's soups and sandwiches. My wife really likes their seasonal salads.

Love this place as the service never disappoints. Most of the cashiers / servers are young, middle-class females, and generally have this chipperness about them that makes doing business here well worth it. They are the type of staff that can actually hold a conversation with their customers and make solid recommendations on menu items their patrons might not be... More
