We've been going to Panera for many years but haven't been in a month or so. This morning it was very confusing with their service. They used to either call out your name or give you a number for your table or give you a buzzer. Today they just put the bagel on one counter calling out the type it... More

Love going to Panera Bread for quick lunch with the kids. Mac and cheese is the kids favorite, we always try the different options of soups and sandwiches. Never disappointed. Friendly and quick service.

Panera is always good and consistent where ever you are. This is another example of good food, but a little pricy for sandwich and the mac n cheese is the best ever but expensive for the serving size.

Bagel with plain cream cheese $3.39. Love the dark roast coffee (small $2.09. Seating divided in two areas. Took a small counter seat with wobbly chair (needs... More

This Panera is very popular, even on Sundays at 8AM, line moving fast. Very tasty chedar/broccoli soup. Chocolate cookies to die for. Crisp salads. Large sandwich platters for office parties. Great variety of breads. Our favorite is the sour dough baguette. The souffles come in different flavors:spinach/artichoke, bacon/spinach, 4 cheeses, cheese/mushrooms a special breakfast treat. Panera's prices are kinda high,... More

I had difficulty last time I visited this location. Again this time there was confusion at the register. The Iced Tea was empty. They did respond and fill it...thank you! The portions have gotten much smaller! I've been getting the same BBQ salad for years and this one was TINY. Same bowl, just a thin layer of salad at the... More

Panera's concept of serving delicious freshly-prepared foods has made it a popular destination for quick meals or snacks. The popularity of this place often makes it a bit crowded and congested, particularly at peak eating hours. The selection of delicious food items, however, is well worth the wait.

Have never ordered anything that I didn't love. The steak salad is fantastic. If you need to do school work or business - bring yoru laptop - they have internet connection for free. Highly recommend.

They use to make you bus your own table when you finished but no longer do that which is good. It cost's about $25 for two people to eat hear with drinks and there are better deals in town but it's a good place to go to once a week or so as the food is pretty good, just a... More

Food was okay all around. Service was poor - cashiers had to check with the people in the back if every item ordered are "gone or available". Almost all of the selections on special were gone. Cashiers did not greet everyone that entered the restaurant but rather just the friends that happen to drop by and chat with them. We... More
