“Not up to Panera's standard”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We love Panera for breakfast and lunch, so we were excited to find one conveniently located by our hotel. The food was up to the usual high standards we have for Panera, but we found the facility itself to be not what we've come to expect. We are used to bright, clean dining rooms and in this case, the floors and tables were both dirty and well worn. The restrooms were also not clean at all.

“Great soup”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We have a Panera Bread close to home and enjoy eating there and getting carry out too. My favorite item to get is the You pick Two. You get a cup of soup and either a half sandwich or a salad. Their soups are delicious but my favorites are the Baked Potato, French Onion, and the Broccoli Cheddar. Their panini sandwiches are good and salads are a great option also. I love the French baguette bread that comes with your soup and they also have a bakery with to die for pastries, cookies, muffins and brownies. The drive thru is handy when you are in a hurry or you can eat in and use the free wifi. Panera Bread is a restaurant that we will continue to visit for great food and good prices.

“Good Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Met a couple of friends for lunch. I had the Tomato Soup & the Turkey & Avocado sandwich! One friend had a bagel with coffee, the other had soup & sandwiches. It was good, but I do think it's a little pricey. But, it was better than fast food.
