This Panerai is quick, clean, and conveniently located. Always busy between 11 and 2. Has outdoor seating. You can always have a healthy meal. I usually eat at the location, but today I took it to go. I liked the to go packaging.

Tired of fast food? This is a great alternative. The service is considered fast but the food is healthy, more tasty and nice change of pace. For a little over $5 you can get a bowl of soup with a fresh roll. Plenty for a...More

It's not Panera's food I have an issue with; it's the lack of cleanliness of both the Crystal Lake and Algonquin locations! At busy times, someone should be bussing the tables (I know, we bus our own, but that doesn't mean the table top, seats,...More
