“Worse than average Panera Breads”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

This was okay for a quick breakfast, but it was subpar when compared to pretty much any other Panera bread I have eaten at. The cleanliness and attention to detail just wasn't there. I ordered some pastries and they seemed overcooked and slightly stale. Disappointed. Not up to Panera standards...

“Good value by the outlets!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

This place is usually humming with patrons whenever we stop by to get food. The wait was pretty quick, the service was efficient, and food is consistently good. It's a step up from fast food, so of course, the prices are higher, but your arteries aren't running from all the fried food. The "You pick 2" - half a sandwich and soup is a good option and pretty filling. The roast beef sandwich is complemented with a wasabi flavored mayo. The tomato basil and black bean soups are good. The turkey avocado sandwich is also good.

“Excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

My friend and I had lunch there yesterday, after shopping at the Leesburg Outlets. I have a member card, which let me choose either a coffee, drink, or pastry, as a birthday gift. I got tthe cherry pastry. We both did the Pick 2 lunch-soup and sandwich. Got the French Onion soup and the chicken salad sandwich. Both came quickly and were delicious. Girl friend was happy with her meal as well. Manager worked the pick up counter, to make sure we got our correct food and quickly.

“Great!”

Consistently great food! Line is slow moving but you can call in your orders for lunch but fortunately it is usually pretty good.

“OK bagels and sandwiches”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I probably go mainly for coffee and bagel breakfasts. Reasonable price and consistent quality. Lunches tend to be a bit pricey for what you get although the quality is usually pretty good. Again, better than average but cannot call it very good. Maybe 3.5 stars.
