“What happened?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Usually the food and service in Panera is pretty good. Today, that was not the case. The Sonoma Chicken Stew was as runny as chicken soup and the cashier kept pushing the half sandwich and cup of soup when I repeatedly asked for a full sandwich and cup of soup. Fortunately, we were able to be seated, not having to encounter to many customers extending their stay with the free wifi.

“Good food if it available”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

The staff tries hard and the food is Panera standards, however, this location seems to run out of a lot of items....including spreads and breads.

“Good food-nice atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Bagels are always fresh. Salads are creative as are the sandwiches. Great green tea. Have stopped several times on the way home for fresh bread.

“Some hits, and a miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Okay, never go to Panera on a weekend if you are in a rush. No matter where you are, it will be slammed with customers between 11:00 and 2:00. Good for business, bad for you if you want a table or have to get in and out quickly. But, all those people are there for a reason-the food is pretty good! We loved the black bean soup, the cuban sandwich, and the baguettes that came with them. We loved the iced tea choices, too. We didn't love the asian chicken salad. The greens were a bit tired, with some dark edges and wilted pieces. The chicken tasted super processed, kind of briny and was too mushy. The rest of the salad was just sort of okay. I wouldn't order it again, but I will return to Panera.
