“Great lunch to go.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

I eat here on Fridays and the sandwiches are very good. They are not cheap but are worth it. I also buy a loaf of bread from them once in awhile, the Sourdough bread is very good, plus the price was a surprise, $2.49.

“Quick and good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I love going to this place for lunch during the week! I always get the broccoli cheddar soup, which is really good. There is usually a line around noon/1pm, but it goes pretty fast. I also get their bagels, freeze them and then toast them every morning, they are pretty good - my favorite is their honey walnut cream cheese.. I could eat a whole tub by itself. Try it!!

“Just a regular panera”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

I can't think of anything exceptional with this one, but it was a good lunch! They had a lot of people on a Saturday at 4pm and once I got there, I was able to order quickly and get my food. All was yummy! No complaints!

“Always Packed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Make sure to order ahead during lunch hour as they are always super busy. Parking can be a problem too, but this reliable chain is worth the hassle. I love the asiago roast beef.
