“Great lunch offerings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Panera is, of course, a chain. That said, the quality is consistently good and the variety of sandwich-oriented fare quite creative. If you love chunks of fresh bread packed with meats and vegetables, this is your place.

“Quick service, fresh food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

We stopped in for a quick lunch after doing some shopping in the area. All three of us got the "pick two" options. Tuna sandwich for all as well as: Bistro Onion Soup, Creamy Tomato, and Black Bean.
Everything came out quickly and fresh. The soups could have stood to be a bit warmer though.

There was a mix up with the sandwiches, they gave mine to my husband and his to me...so he was missing onion and I had onion. Did not realize until after he ate his. Due to allergies, I cannot pick it off and continue eating. I got big apologies and a fresh sandwich right away.

We would go back, it's reasonable food at reasonable prices.

“Great fast food option!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

If you are in a hurry...

If you don't want to give tips...

If you want a meal under $10

If you want to eat good salad, good panini, drink a good coffee or chai tea...

Or get a good bread or pastry...

It's a great place!!!

Nice service, fast service, ok food for the price...
