Always good

Their bread is wonderful. Good variety of items on the menu. Coffee is just okay. Good salads and sandwiches. Reasonable prices. Sometimes they don't clear the tables as promptly as they should.

Panera serves fantastic food quickly and reasonably. Breads are incredible. But, however, my biggest kudo goes to the company or individual management who order Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi as one of their fountain drinks. I cannot drink caffeine but enjoy a soft drink and don't want to add calories with Sprite or similar drinks. I can't understand why this is... More

Reasonably priced food, but decent. Interesting soup selection, and although a little too sweet for me, was still very tasty. Fast service.

Ordered a sandwich which is OK and it was prepared promptly. I had had this sandwich at another Panera and found the bread a bit gummy. I asked to have the bread toasted. The bread was heated a bit in a toaster but it was not toasted. The sandwich was gummy. I'll have to be more assertive for Panera to... More

If you're tired of heavy meals of eating junk food or places where you can't get a decent salad, this place is a great choice. Ate here three times while at a Will Roger's Arena horse show nearby. It's a chain, of course, but a lot of healthy choices. Nice friendly staff. Fresh mini baguette with your salad, and you... More

The service very good; the atmosphere light and clean. The food is good and value priced. As importantly you do not feel rush to clear a place for someone else.

We decided to have the soups on this particular visit. I thoroughly enjoyed my Broccoli & Cheese soup. It was really delicious. I'd order this one again. My husband ordered the Chicken Noodle soup, and he said it wasn't bad. LOL That being said; we will return.

We wish we had time to have a meal here, but we enjoyed our Hot Chocolate and Frozen Caramel Drink, a Creamy caramel and icy espresso blended and topped with whipped cream and chocolate syrup; so yummy and so much better than the other famous frap from Star----- or frappe from McD------.

No matter which one I've been to, the restaurants are clean, busiest at lunch and have the best Cheese Broccoli soup in a sourdough bowl out of any restaurant I've been to.
