Its Panera - consistent. Staff is nice!

I really enjoy some of their food for lunch. Trying to eat less carbs so a lot is too much carbs for me. I really like the turkey chili and their new turkey Fall sandwhich with apples on it is very good. The staff is always really nice and friendly;)

I ordered the sandwich and french onion soup; I specific asked do I get the cheese on the top of the soup, she said yes but I got a small portion of soup without any cheese go with it, not happy with that.

The help is thoughtful and helpful. The food is always fresh and tasty. The soups are wonderful as are the salads and sandwiches, with an assortment of each. Assistance for the parent with children and the handicapped has been exhibited in many ways. Whenever my friends and I get together we head for Panera.

The food there is pretty average except for the soups which i belived are very good just because they serve them in the bread bowl.

This location is bright and clean with friendly staff. The BBQ chicken flatbread sandwich was excellent. The meat was moist, the greens were fresh. A refreshing stop for lunch on a long day.

I had lunch and ordered a Steak & Cheese Panini and Onion Soup, no Croutons. A small mistake in that they added the croutons, but they easily fixed that! However, my issue is the Wi-Fi policy. It was very busy and we had a short wait for our food. While waiting, I noticed a young businessman seated in a two... More

We wound up eating both breakfast and lunch here because of its convenient location. We've eaten at many Paneras and the experience was pretty typical. Our orders were taken and we received the food quickly. The rest rooms are locked, so I'd suggest you ask for the code when you place your order.

Service was great. Food was delicious, but I ordered half a sandwich, and thought it small. Need to order a full sandwich next time. Clean and fun decorated atmosphere.

four of us went to Panera for a brunch on Sunday morning. The place filled up quickly but service was still quick. We ordered soups and sandwiches and coffee. It was served pretty fast. Sandwiches were tasty and soup was hot and delicious. We found the pastries quite tempting and helped ourselves to a couple of them. Everything had a... More
