I'm a Foodie, so I have nooooo problem spending money on food; particularly good food. One can glamourize Panera if so desired, but realistically it's a sandwich shop (a Subway basically) with a fireplace, and an aesthetically pleasing dining area. That's what we're paying for - and it's become less important to me, quite frankly. Oh, you still pay for... More

I eat Panera semi regularly usually in Indianapolis as that is where I am from. This location had awful summer corn chowder as it was overly salted and looked and taste like it'd been reheated for days. On the other hand I had the summer salad with all the fruit and it was great! I didn't get meat and they... More

Panera's brocolli soup is wonderful! Always fresh although some time it is not warm enough. Every time I have been there the place is clean and busy but moves quickly. Great staff.

It's in an outlot, so it's hard to get to. However, once you get parked, it''s set up just like any other average Panera.

The one on Washtenaw Ave is a typical Panera - excellent for the price and a great place to hang out and talk

The good thing about Panera is the consistency of its food and beverage. Fresh and nice - nothing too unique.

The food at this Panera Bread is always of good quality. I enjoyed the large bowl of soup and turkey sandwich and found it filling enough to bring a quarter of the sandwich home. For people not familiar with the parking lot it could be a bit tricky getting in and out of here.

Toasty place to visit during the winter. Panera location near Mt Brighton and it has the appeal of a ski place with the centrally located fireplace. Average Panera fare when it comes to bagels and soup. Good central place to meet and hang out with friends.
