Great breakfast spot

Stopped in for a great breakfast with my daughter & husband. They both had the spinach bacon soufflé and I had the pecan braid and cobblestone pastry. Love the fresh pastries and the soufflé is absolutely yummy.

The food is good. I have only picked up from this location and there has never been any problems with the food or otherwise. I do have to say that we experienced outstanding customer service today. We had placed our order and then we were unable to pick up the food right away. After 40 minutes and unable to leave... More

I like Panera Bread. However, I am puzzled that a bread company could make such mediocre cinnamon rolls. Now they aren't bad - just a little dry - like you would get from a day-old bread store. Next time I will have them nuke it in the microwave. I still yearn for the bakeries that pull the rolls right from... More

I enjoy a great fresh sandwich when I stop and dine in. Great location to some shopping. Like to see students and family dining and eating fresh food.

Food is always fresh and service is great. A shared lunch is a great deal and you score points to get free coffee and cakes. they add up quickly.

4/13/15 My husband and I walked into this Panera Bread for lunch on a Monday. Our order was taken and they are always friendly in these establishment's, no matter where you go. We ordered a Spinach Salad which they made the way we wanted it. Also had 1/2 a sandwich of a Panini Sandwich with Turkey. It never matters where... More

This is a no brainer! If you like fresh healthy food, you cannot beat Panera! I love the pick 2 menu and the onion soup & Asian salad is a hit!

OK - so I love Panera Bread Restaurants. I love the food at Panera Bread. They offer a nice variety of soup, salads, and sandwiches. I consider it good fast food. So, what is my problem? My problem is that I've been to a lot of Panera Bread locations (PA, DE, MD, VA, WV, NC, TN, AR, TX) and only... More

Always a challenge to get exactly what I ordered when eating in. Only 2 twice in 11 visits did I succeed in getting what was ordered and I confirmed was ordered at the cashier. On the last occasion they needed 2 attempts to succeed. I only return in the vain hope that one day they will bring back the apple... More

Panera is one of our "go to" places for a light meal, usually a salad and/or soup. This one provides the goods, but never seems to get our to-go orders correct. We haven't had one right in months! The food is good, just remember to double check your take out orders. When you get home and your greek salad with... More
