“not enough help”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Its 1 pm waiting for service which never came after a few min. In line where at least 4 people standing waiting for one person who was more interested in toasting a bagel for one customer. Just standing there watching the bagel go through the machine while the rest of us just stood there. A manager I presume was to her left offering no assistance to us. He made a coffee and just watched. I walked over to him in disgust telling him he needs more help or try helping himself as I walked out without buying anything. I is the first time this has happened and I hope its the last.

“Good place for lunch. Good breads.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

It's a chain, but it is a good chain. Soups are good, food is good, atmosphere is kind of "busy, urban" in the suburbs. Quick, informal. Maybe a tad pricey. Recommended.

“Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Soup in a bread bowl was very good. Colleagues enjoyed the salads. What you expect from his quick food brand.

“Quick, self-service place but good soup, sandwiches and salads.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Consistent menu and food quality from place to place. You know what you are getting. It is generally good and a good value. Sometimes the tables get a bit messy because they are not cleaned up by previous clients but, all-in-all a healthy and good place for lunch or breakfast.

“Good but so expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I just went to buy my wife chicken noodle soup because she was feeling under the weather. I bought the family size and it came to about $17. $17 for chicken noodle soup? Are you kidding me? It was great but I basically avoid Panera now, that is robbery.
