I love Panera...no matter where. Love it. Popped in for lunch and had the lemon chicken soup & 1/2 salad. Perfect! Added a cupcake for $0.99, and was thankful for that about 10 hours later when it became my dinner!

We tend to eat at Panera no matter what the city. They are always clean, consistent, and pleasantly-decorated whenever we've dined there. This was no exception. The young female manager was pleasant and helpful. I did notice, however, that though my usual full-sized salad was good, the portion size was noticeably smaller than usual. The baguette was soft and tasteful... More

I was very pleased with the clean and nice atmosphere as well as the food. Their food was wonderful and even surpassed the same restaurants in my city. I will go here again.

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.
