The food is healthy, tastes great and affordable at pretty much every Panera but what puts this one above the others?? The workers!! They are all so amazing...the manager goes beyond customer service and the young staff is so friendly, helpful and remembers your special orders! I got a To Go order one night right at closing and they could... More

Love pretty much everything about this restaurant. The bread is always perfect and their cookies are so soft and yummy. I wish I could say more but after tasting the mozzarella and tomato panini I haven't ventured much farther off the menu lol.

The food is so good here. I always get the smoked turkey on country with lettuce tomato onion and mayo. This time I tried the new Turkey chili and it was excellent! I paid a $10 for both and a drink. For the quality of food and everything, prices were good.

We just went there and there's something for everybody, including the two years old that had mac & cheese.

Panera offers a great menu and atmosphere for alone time, with free WiFi or time with friends or family. The fireplace is always a warm welcome with outdoor seating on nice days. The menu changes often to bring new sandwich, soup, or salad selections.

I don't get to Panera Bread often, because there isn't one close to me, but I dropped in this location for some take-out, and as usual, it was a pleasure. From the taking of my order, the check-out, to the picking up my food - no complaints here. I just finished some chicken soup, 1/2 turkey sandwich, and carrot cake... More

I love good bread. I have made many, many loaves from scratch. Before children, I kept a sourdough starter alive for over a year. Panera makes very good bread. Not all Panera Bread locations are the same. I especially like the one in La Plata, MD. They serve soup, sandwiches and wicked deserts. My wife and I shared a bread-bowl... More
