There is a fair variety of menu chpoices, such that a person can visit a couple of times a month and not repeat selections. Food is tasty and advertised to be wholesome.

Unexpectedly poor service. Dirty tables. Don't order hot chocolate if you want a classic hot chocolate. Very bad. Thankfully, we were just passing through and live near a very nice Panera.

Love their bakery good and bagels! The food is clean and very tasty! Specialty coffees are great. Service is good and staff very friendly. sometimes can be slow in getting out coffee which is a bummer as it is considered a "coffee" spot!
