Great cozy place for breakfast

For past several years we have been going to Panera in early morning for breakfast.winters are especially great because we sit close to the fireplace to eat. Employees are pleasant, especially Kyle. He is quick, knows the job well, and nice to patrons.

I stopped here for breakfast on a weekday morning and they were severely understaffed. I ordered an egg and cheese on ciabatta bread sandwich, which was input by the cashier as a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich. When I asked the employee making the food to remake my sandwich she acted annoyed with me (offered no apology) although it was... More

It's Panera Bread. Need I say more. Great customer service -- my youngest son couldn't make up his mind what he wanted that morning and the staff was courteous and did not push him along, even with the line. Great food -- need I say more

Panera Bread is one of our go to restaurants. I like the Fugi Apple Chicken Salad for healthy, but love the smoke house turkey sandwich when I don't care about calories. The pick two works well also. Soups are great. The Hershey one can get busy, but the lines move fast and food is always quick to be ready.

Stopped by for a late dinner of soup and half a sandwich. As I've always experienced at Panera, service was excellent, food was excellent, and the experience just what I expected. They have a nice area outside for seating, too.

The food was not bad but really over priced for what we got. Can do much better at other local restaurants. The baked goods were tasty but common.
