Standard Panera, which means excellent

Great coffee, and great scones (triple berry and cinnamon crunch), even had a newspaper for me to read! Fast service too.

Any time you go, breakfast, lunch or dinner there is always something good to choose. Yum bagels, cheese soufflés, sandwiches, salads, soups. Friendly staff and nice place to meet friends. Free Wi-Fi. Make sure you try their cookies and brownies.

I got the Fuji apple chicken salad with the dressing on the side and it was delicious. My daughter didn't you pick to with their French onion soup and a turkey avocado BLT and both were very good. We were going to buy six bagels but it was about the same price to get 13 which was great.

Panera Bread is pretty standard and this one was representative. I wanted something they didn't really have on the menu but the prepared a sandwich for me as I requested. It was just what I wanted at the time. The restaurant was quiet and clean and easy to get to. Nice place to grab a quick healthy meal.

Panera is rarely exciting. The same everywhere you go. This one was no exception. But when you are in a hurry and want a safe place to have reasonably wholesome and healthy food from a familiar chain, it is hard to beat Panera. (OK, maybe Qdoba or Chipotle, but that is about it.) I recommend the Chicken and Rice soup.... More

Same as all the others, a little bit bigger. Service, seating cleanliness seems to be uniform across the board. The turkey chili I had was not the best. A bit spicy and although there was a lot in the bowl, it seemed to be a small portion. The mac/cheese good, grilled cheese good, smoke house turkey panini had to much... More

everything is good, either you go for breakfast or lunch, if it is breakfast try their cheese soufflé is very yummy. For lunch I like their potato soup just know they don't have it everyday. Their Swiss and ham sandwich is very good.

Clean restaurant, good food & service (on a busy Saturday, Noon 9-6-14). Tempting pastry display case coming in the front entryway. Tried a delicious cinnamon roll (https://www.panerabread.com/en-us/menu-categories/pastries-and-sweets.html ) & white chocolate & raspberry mini cake (OK) and BBQ Chicken Flat-bread sandwich (OK). Self serve soft drinks & coffee available. Wifi available.

Walk in and get greeted by a friendly employee. They are patient I you are there for the first time. I asked questions about their sandwich and employee was very helpful. if she didn't know an answer she would look it up. Tried the Thai salad and was not disappointed. Their prices are a little high.
