My husband and I stopped here on a trip from Chicago to Champaign and we're delighted to find an excellent panera experience. They have the walk up kiosks. Then at the counter where you pick up, there's a quality control assistant. She was helpful and took her job very seriously. I had a tomato soup and spicy Thai chicken salad... More

Always a fresh salad and either soup or a great chicken avocado salad is my favorite. Somewhat pricey but you get good fresh food. The broccoli cheddar soup is always a treat!

This was the first...and last...time we will eat here. I ordered the Chicken, Ham & Swiss Flatbread for $8. There was one piece of ham on it. No turkey. Lots of mustard and arugula.

Panera has the best bread around and sells out early. Their food is always very fresh, tasty, and well-prepared. Nevertheless, you can't enter the drive-thru line without being readyfor adventure. You can always count on the menu having changed and your favorite soup off the options. Like the for who ran away with the spoon, your favorite half sandwich disappeared... More

Food has always been good. Service is always good. Trying to find a place to sit can be challenging due to the small size if the seating area.

I love Panera bread. I love all of the homemade goodness and the salads are number 1. The soups are just like Moms. I think it is a little pricey but after you eat it doesn't feel so bad. I would like to see something other than an apple or chips as a side.

What a great place to run in, relax, or just to enjoy. Food is excellent and very filling, but what keeps me coming back is the service. The associates are friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful.

A little slow to get food if in as hurry but good food, - you can pick your meal according to preferences for lower calorie/lower fat versus heavy carb, etc. Good beverage selection if you are picky.
