“PANERA ANKENY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Food is very nice but bakery is wonderful yet a little pricey. I like the slight hint of bustle and yet many groups visiting.

“Always a great place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

We eat here approximately 2x a month. Always a great meal. The bread bowls are awesome, but too much for me to eat. So a cup of soup & baguette is great size for me. The broccoli cheese soup is my fav.

“Fair”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Tables were in need of being cleaned. I had to find a worker to do so. Floors were in need of vacumning. The table I was at looked like someone smashed a sugar cookie on the floor. When I told the employee, her response was ya, it gets messy in here. Didn't even attempt to clean it up. I understand crumbs but this was worse than crumbs and should have been cleaned up immediately.

Food was ok. I guess I just lost my appeitite with how unclean the place was.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I ordered the Tuscan chicken panini and the chicken and ham was very cold. I complained and they remade it. The second time around it was still cold. I spent about 30 dollars there with my fiancé and son .... For a cold " hot " panini .... Never again. Booo
