First time visting. Wasnt sure how I would like it. But if you looking for a different kind of sandwich, this is the place to try. Its not an everday sort of thing for me. But I'm sure I will go back.

Love the modern greek quinoa salad! Unfortunately, the cafe is not as clean and staff not as friendly as compared to other Paneras I've frequented. Great location within walking distance to several hotels.

Nothing longwinded here: It’s Panera. Awesome food served with super service in a spotless restaurant. Not really a whole lot to add.

I had a little trouble finding this one but then felt a little dumb when I spotted it because it was right there in front of me! I picked up a sandwiches to go on my way up to FDR State Park. They were expertly made, the ingredients were fresh, all was good!

Love the freshness of of food. Service is good. Great for the whole family. A little pricy but once in awhile its worth it.

I patronize this store a lot and I am happy to report things are getting better. The food has always been great but service and organization had slipped but perhaps they are on the rebound. My last several rapid pickups have been without a hitch. Glad to see they are getting things under control as it is a great option... More

The tomato basil and broccoli cheese soups were very good but overpriced, as are the sandwiches. My husband's turkey sandwich was boring at best.

We have loved Panera for a long time, so we made a point of getting off the highway to go here. It was not far from the freeway, and easy to get back to our trip. It was easy to get into and out of the parking area, and though we did not use it, this place has a drive... More

All I have to say is YUMMY!!! The chicken soba noodle bowl is a delicious meal.... ;-) In addition, the hospitality was very enjoyable and detail service was very accurate.

So disapointed when I got my $7.29 sandwich. The bread was dried out, had three small chunks of turkey with a glob of mayo. It had been made too long before my 10 minute wait in line. I've eaten many wonderful things at Panera, but the turkey sandwich was terrible.
