A different dining experience. Usuall a long line and a long wait at this location. The food is nothing outstanding but is good if you want a change of pace and want to stand there waiting to Cary your food to the table. You will also have to put your plate and bowl away at the trash station which to... More

I often purchase the Fuji salad for lunch and or dinner, and it is good. I would never had added apple chips to my salad, but this salad has now become my favorite.

This Panera gives half full bowls of salad and sometimes soups. The kids meals are a huge joke. When I go, I bring extra food to supplement my daughter's meal, like a fruit cup or extra snack.

Love Panera.. Great food and outstanding bread. Pretty dangerous to eat the bread as good as it is. I try to level it out with the great salad. Can;'t go wrong with this place

The food at this location is pretty good. What turned me on to Panera was that I went to a homebuyers seminar in Alexandria that was a trolley tour and our lunch was catered by Panera. It was a boxed lunch of the Napa Almond Chicken Salad Sandwich, chips, and a cookie. The sandwich was so good that when my... More

Went there for dinner and the food was great. My 2 year old daughter loves going there and getting their Mac and cheese. We always have had a great experience there. Friendly staff, always polite and professional. Also their bakery and coffee's are excellent.

I met four other friends on a Saturday morning to socialize over breakfast. Food was very good and service was pretty fast. My only confusion was that I ordered a sandwich at the bakery counter (and Coffee) and was given my cup. I stood there On the side) waiting for my sandwich quite a while! I then realized that I...
