“Excellent food and breads”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

I always select the "pick two", which is a half sandwich and half salad. Asiago roast beef sandwich is very tasty and bread is great. The salad selected is the Fuji Apple Chicken, but I ask them to hold the chicken as it does not go well with roast beef. The dried crunchy apples are filled with tart flavor. The standard dressing is excellent and they toss it so it is not dripping with dressing.

I can count on a very satisfying meal each and every time. They usually have a special on buying a cinnamon roll at the same time, and it is a nice take-home treat for dinnertime.

The food is prepared very quickly, consistently, yet it is customized. The atmosphere is always excellent, bright, cheerful, clean whether in summer or winter.

“Typical Panera”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Always consistent. Black bean soup is my favorite. They should have on the menu everyday. too many dirty dishes sometimes.

“Always busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Relatively quick service but lines can be long during peak times. Also, keep in mind, that Panera closes at 9 during the week.

Food is great, bottomless cup of coffee even better. They have some good reads as you come in the door. The decor is nice. The atmosphere very inviting to stay a while. I love this place.
