Always love the salads. The new power green smoothie was also delicious. Service was extremely slow, as it was the lunch rush though. Be careful at lunch time- parking is a nightmare, although they have valet.

Great salads, and soups. The sandwiches were a bit bready, with the exception of their very good breakfast options. Wi-Fi available, but this option tends to tie up the seats!

WIth Panera, you know you're getting the same consistency across all locations. The avocado turkey blt is great and not too many calories. This location is pretty quick and everyone is pretty friendly, WIsh they would do some weekly specials or something though.

I used to be into Panera, but I think they have gone downhill. Their sandwiches are getting pretty disgusting- both the turkey and chicken both look and taste bad. I still like their bagels and cream cheeses and they do have good breakfast. Salads can...More
