overpriced

For this just being a sandwich and soup place, I feel the food is a bit overpriced and not all that good. I get that its supposed to be made from better, healthier ingredients but to its still "fast food". I have had not so good experiences there with the staff and there consistent chatting and... read more

So I ordered my food online (www.panerabread.com) and received my confirmation email. When I reached the location, they had not kept my order ready (I had opted for their Rapid Pick up option).

Panera Bread has a great selection of soup and sandwiches. Lots of seating. The fireplace adds a pleasant ambiance to the room and is great to sit by on a cold day. They have fresh baked bread that fills the restaurant with pleasing aromas. My favorite soup is their Broccoli Cheese (although all their soups are delicious). Coupled with a... More

My daughter eats there once a week. They are very welcoming to her. I wish they wouldn't try to upsell her as she is an easy mark.

they have awesome soups, salads and bagels. this location is better than many. Once you have their bagels, such as asiago and cinnamon crunch you wont go anywhere else for bagels. The soups, whether it be tomato basil, corn chowder or chicken wild rice are fabulous.
