We enjoyed a late dinner at Panera, after an afternoon and evening of tracking down lodging when our B&B arrangements fell through. Food was up to Panera standards, staff was friendly. Couldn't ask for more!

Located at RT29 & Tech Road. Next to TGI Fridays and Chic fil a. Parking lot can get crazy busy sometimes but usually it's OK. Clean, newer Panera. Nice employees, lines go fast, good for breakfast. Not a big fan of lunch here. Breakfast is good for oatmeal, bagels etc ..

I really enjoy some of their food for lunch. Trying to eat less carbs so a lot is too much carbs for me. I really like the turkey chili and their new turkey Fall sandwhich with apples on it is very good. The staff is always really nice and friendly;)

The help is thoughtful and helpful. The food is always fresh and tasty. The soups are wonderful as are the salads and sandwiches, with an assortment of each. Assistance for the parent with children and the handicapped has been exhibited in many ways. Whenever my friends and I get together we head for Panera.

The food there is pretty average except for the soups which i belived are very good just because they serve them in the bread bowl.
