Panera Bread is my "go to" restaurant for lunch when I'm at work or coming home from a morning hike. Their food is consistently excellent and I usually order the Pick2 meal - any of their soups are good, and their tuna sandwich is amazing. My family knows to get me Panera Bread gift cards for special events.

Our family planned to meet here for lunch. Prior to driving there, I checked the Panera web site and found there is almost nothing for vegans. I called the others and we changed our plans.

Their breakfast soufflés are delicious, as are the bagels and pastries. Lunch offerings include a variety of sandwiches, soups and salads, all very good.

Although there is a variety of food - bread, sandwiches, soup, etc. I enjoy dessers and my favorite are carrot muffins. I regret that Panera does not sell " a half" of their loaves. people often like to try, not to buy a whole loaf of bread. Something to work on...

The bread is fresh, the soup and/or salads are very good, and it is nice to have all of the combo options. The staff are friendly and the time from order to table is very acceptable, even during the lunch rush. They also provide lemons with the water, which is a nice touch.

This is a standard Panera, and the sandwiches are very good. It's great to get a choice of excellent breads for the sandwich. Fruit is available with the sandwich, so you can actually purchase a fairly healthy meal at Panera.

No complaints. I stopped in for a working lunch and had the soup and sandwich combination. It was a good meal.

Cafeteria style service, so nothing fancy, but the fresh baked breads, nicely portioned sandwiches always hit the spot. Salads are tasty, too. Some fuss about the price -- and certainly Panera isn't cheap -- but I will pay this reasonable amount for a filling, satisfying, happy-making meal. Delivery -- I've used maybe a dozen times for business catering, and their... More

Always look for a Panera to have breakfast at when I travel. They have outstanding food, great coffee and a nice environment.
