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.

Can't go wrong with Pick-Two selections. Also, the employees are very helpful and always serve with a smile. Only problem is sometimes all tables are taken...

Food was good as always. Staff members were very young and disinterested in actually helping you. It seemed more like you were bothering them and ruining their play time than them wanting to take your order and make their company money.

This is a chain and from location to location they provide a consistent product. We are locals and visit periodically with service and food of consistent quality. If you are looking for a quick bite, but not fast food with WIFI access, this is worth the stop.

Whether for our business or for personal pleasure, this is our favorite choice. Recently had to call and order a catered sandwich order just 3 hours before lunch for 40 people. No hesitation. They even called earlier than expected since they were able to get the order done sooner. Everything was fresh, so tasty and you feel like you are... More

All are delicious. Coffee and food - superb. Easy access. Be sure to take home some of the awesome bagels. Our favorite...Cinnamon Crunch. They'll slice them for you. If you get 13 (a baker's dozen), you'll get one free.
