Went to have lunch. Needed to wait 30 minutes. But cashier did not tell it, found out it when was waiting in line for food. At least they should tell people about waiting time. Most of customers was disappointed.

Clearly, Panera is a Fast Food chain and it is designed for quick and easy breakfasts, luncheons or snacks. That having been said, their menu selections go far beyond the usual hamburgers and cheeseburgers. And, their salads are far more sophisticated than iceberg lettuce with...More
