“Slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

I arrived at 8 am on a Sunday with a good wait. The restaurant was not full and only half a dozen people in line. The barista was so behind, I finished my bagel before my coffee was ready. The good thing is that the Panera quality was still there.

“Pasta boring and small portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Got a 1/2 order of tortellini alfredo, and it was so tiny, I was incredibly surprised. Not to mention I believe that it took an awful lot longer than necessary. Very disappointing.

“Good...like all the others”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

This is a standard Panera Bread...so if you've been to one, you've been to them all. But that's a good thing! The food is consistently fresh, tasty, and with some health options out there. This location is nice in that there is outdoor seating available on warmer days. And a (fake) fireplace inside. It's all good...

“Great staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

I love this chain, it's a little pricey for what it does, but the food is great, the freshly made coffee is great (I say that because at some time they just heat a mix out of a bottle) and the Wifi is often good.

Stopped by per chance late in the evening and they still served us!!

Great service by the best and most friendly staff has me coming back for their "pick Two" deal of Tomato Soup and Beer and blue chees salad again and again

“Close to Hilton Garden Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Good food as usual from Panera Bread which is one of our favorites. The only problem is they do not serve chili...boo!
