Good one

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 li,e to have a light breakfast and Panera offers that. I had a delicious ciabatta with cheese and egg. Bravo!

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

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.
