As a general rule, I do not go to chain restaurants. Panera is the exception. I ate here three days in a row, and was never disappointed.

First off I wanted to say that I love the food at this place and its very convienant being 5 minutes from my house. But the wait time at the drive through is very very long.

Usual good Panera food - portions are huge - soufflés are hot - coffee is excellent. Very nice staff in this restaurant - lots of smiles and when they were out of coffee, they not only made more but came to tell me when it was done. They also cleared our table! Nice easy spot for a late brunch

Consistent and predictable. Pretty good food, friendly service, comfortable setting. A lot of students use Panera as a study hall.

The best place to eat lean, catch up with a friend, and some leisure such as reading a book during the afternoon. The green tea is my favorite and the pastries are delicious. The only thing that could be better is the portions, especially the sandwiches, are very small.

I like the Panera chain. You always know what you're getting and the service is very quick. We had the tomato soup and chicken noodle soup in a breadbowl, and split an amazingly delicious red velvet cookie.

Great food, although it being very close to Liberty University, there are times you can not get a seat to sit down and eat your food due to students taking up space just drinking and using the free wireless Internet for their laptops
