“Good choice if sandwiches and soups”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

My wife and I eat here once a week for dinner out of convenience. The food is pretty good (especially the Fuji Apple Chicken Salad and Broccoli Cheese Soup) and they do have some good pastries. Watch out for the bread bowls, and they don't tend to give you much soup in them (they only hollow out the bread bowls slightly). Inside seating can get tough to find during the evenings for larger than two people in a party.

“Consistently Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2011

My daughter likes for me to take the family/grandkids to Panera. I have been probably 7-8 times, and have never been unhappy. I like to be able to select light healthy options, if I choose... especially if I can make room for some high calorie bakery goods. Their soups are great, as is their chili on a cold day. Their fuji apple salad is excellent, as is their bread bowl with broccoli cheddar soup. You can do 1/2 sandwich/soup combos. They have excellent slushy type lemonades when the weather turns warm, and on the few days it's sunny, we enjoy sitting outside. They have free wifi, I believe. When my daughter suggests Panera, I always go for it. The staff are always very helpful and cheerful

“Great little Bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2009

So I know it's a "chain restaurant" and not a local little bistro, but Panera's food is great. I've seen reviews saying it's "expensive" for lunch, well it's also "cheap" for dinner then! We always get the "You Pick Two" items - the salads are FANTASTIC, the soups are always amazing, and the sandwiches are great too! No sense in me listing my favorites, as they seem to change the menu up quite often, but it's always great! Oh, and their breakfast sandwiches are WAY better than Starbucks or McDonalds. Fresh made too! If you are in the mood for a bagle, I highly recommend the Cinnamon Crunch bagel.
