“Best Panera restaurant ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

This should be the training University for all Panera employees and the corporation got it right with the eating area design. Feels intimate while still serving many. The booths and nooks allow for even those hard of hearing to secure a spot for conversation. Truly wish this for all Panera's!!!! Food is good and it feels personal when they offer a dessert for 99 cents after you've finished ordering. Hard to say no to a 99 cent chocolate croissant!
Quality persists all around. Even have person clearing and wiping tables down with a smile at lunchtime...

“Just like every other Panera.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

The prices are high and the value is low. Nice folks helped us with breakfast foods but the value is just not there.

“Great Food Great Community Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

I have eaten at Panera's across the states and this location has by far the best tasting. I know they all use the same requirements, but the food here is hotter and more flavor. They are also like the rest of Panera's involved in he Community and the donations are top of the line.

“Fresh, Fast and Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

For a chain restaurant this one exceeds standards in ensuring they are always serving fresh food with caring, rapid service and delivering a wide range of deliciousness -- fresh pastries, salads, soups and hearty sandwiches -- not to mention "real" hot milk chocolate (not a powdered brand). Excellent for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

“Convenient Place in the Neighborhood to Stop in for Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

I usually go to Panera near my office and order to go but I have stopped by this location twice now with my children. The food is always good and made to order and it is a great alternative to fast food for a family. My son loves their soup bread bowl w/chicken noodle, my daughters love their mac and cheese, and I usually get their 1/2 sandwich asiago roast beef and broccoli soup combo. They have great cookies, brownies, bread and bagels too. I haven't really tried anything I didn't like so next time you need a quick casual lunch or breakfast you should try it.

For those on a budget skip ordering drinks and dessert and it 's cheaper than fast food in my opinion.
