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

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.

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.
