I like to eat at home so I can control calories, ingredients, etc. but we all have to get out sometime. This is one of my favorite "treats" because of the healthy entrees. You DO have to stand on line near all the desserts, LOL, but if you can keep your eyes on the prize, there's plenty to choose from.

This location was great, parking was good but most importantly, ALOT of seating. There are a couple nice quiet seating areas good for talking and doing some studying, lots of outdoor seating, and the main dining area so a little different setting for all kinds of diners. Staff was friendly as well.

Busy lunch crowd and lines can get long. You order at the counter and then an employee brings your food and clear tables. Salad and bread were good.

Good Panera. Almost closing time and the breads are still fresh. Giving away free samples of cookies in order to clear the baked goods collection before closing. Very good idea. Friendly service. Clean restaurant. Convenient parking. All in all great Shopping Center.

Panera bread has a variety of bagels, and also a variety of spread sauce. My favorite bagels are plain and sesami flavor. They also offer a variety of light-food, such as salad, sandwitch, pasta, and soup. I like to start a day with bagel and coffee here, and this really makes me feel energetic. Try it if there's a Panera... More

Love their sandwiches and pastries! Just had their chicken and kale sandwich...it was not only tasty but perfectly portioned. Every time I go there, they have this one lady who delivers your food...she is absolutely the sweetest with a smile on her face each time. The new kiosk is pretty neat, love technology =). It's nice to sit down, power... More

We eat here at least 1-2x/week. Son gets lunch and dinner take outs too. Very convenient place to eat before or after a movie. Salads are great. Combo soup and salad/sandwich is perfect for a light meal. Clean and fast service. Has rewards.

Thank corazonb320
