Panera Lunch

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.

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.

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

Ten of us stopped by about 1pm this past Wednesday. Counter help took our orders efficiently and all ten of them came out correctly! Excellent tasting sandwiches, soups, and a salad. We found tables together which was a plus considering it was lunchtime and somewhat busy. Appreciate them acting like they were glad we were there. And we were glad... More

A pretty good group of family arrived pretty late one evening, and proceeded to re-arrange the tables to accommodate our group. Rashani came over to help us, and to mop up the tables, and was generally a delightful hostess! Among us, we ordered everything from breakfast bagels (reports on the french toast bagel were very good), to lunch soups and... More

Went for lunch, couldn't find a table to sit at after circling the dining room twice. I tried to give the rude people playing on their computers and cell phones using the free wi-fi the hint to give up their tables to customers who wanted to eat. Gave up and told the manager about my frustration, asked him to pack... More

Hard to be gluten free. Noisy, and the location was too cold. The food tastes like it is mass produced, I won't eat there again.

I stopped here as I checked into a nearby hotel and it was still open. Clean and fresh. It is a large location and has free WiFi. Staff were friendly. Would visit again if in the area.

A friend of mine and I stopped at the Tech Rd location for breakfast. I had a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich and a cherry danish with a frozen lemonade. My friend had the oatmeal and a coffee. The sandwich was good and the cherry danish and frozen lemonade was great. My friend loved the steel cut oatmeal - it... More

This is a large cafeteria-style restaurant that I have been to very many times. It's always good and cheap. While the lines for ordering may be long, they move very fast, so don't let that prevent you from staying here. All of their servers are efficient and polite. They have everything on the menu from fresh-baked bread and bagels, to... More
