This location moved to a newly constructed restaurant just yards away from the old one (old location is marked as a new IHOP - yet to open). The new building has a drive thru, which is cool. I found this Panera to be very busy and somewhat understaffed on the morning I was there. It was, however, Bagel Tuesday, so... More

Went with family to enjoy mid-week lunch at newer place. Ordered chicken sandwich (Frontega Chicken Panini). Ate half and noticed that the chicken had raw looking areas(yuck!). Went to the food passer at kitchen window- was told: " looks like it's cooked to me; that's what dark meat chicken looks like!" Really? This was supposed to be a chicken breast.... More

I wait for the Fall menu to come around. The Autumn Squash Soup is just great. I also enjoy the Turkey Chili it is thick and filling. The bakery items are on display and are delicious. I like the pick two menu that allows for soup and half a flatbread sandwich. This is really a good healthy place to eat.

The place was jumping for lunch! That's a good sign, generally ... Salads were crisp and fresh and the bread delicious ... But ... Everything was picked over - messy everywhere - tables in-bussed ... Hurried and cluttered. I'll try again at another time but I don't want to go there for lunch again!

We drove by the area and stopped for a quick dinner but ending up spending more than 1 hour there because the food was so great and we like the service.
