This, like all Panera restaurants is very friendly, fast and the food is very good. Everything is fresh and the staff is very friendly.

I haven't been to Panera in a while so I'm not sure how new these dishes were, but they were new to me! Soba noodle bowls were delicious! It really satisfied with the grain baguette! Clean bathrooms and fast service!

Panera is my husband's number one favorite coffee/pastry type stop. Sandwiches, soups, salads and baked goods are all top quality. Lately though, we have noticed the coffee seems to be neglected. My husband drinks d-caf, this a.m. we stopped about 11:25 a.m. and the "time card" on the d-caf and one other coffees was 9:55, by the time it sits... More

I like the fresh food at Panera's but if you really want a great treat, try their orange scones - they are the best. I just tasted their parmesan cheese bagels and they are better than Einstein's as well as Zabar's in New York City that I order online for delivery.

Pretty typical Panera Bread. Overpriced sandwiches and salads and soup with small portions. I mostly just get a soft drink or occasionally a frappe or cookie. Rarely if I don't feel like going somewhere cheaper I'll stay and get a grilled cheese and bowl of tomato soup.

Credit to this location! Service was better and faster than I have seen at any other Panera location which was a welcome surprise when we walked in with a group of about 30.

You get what you get at Panera! Although, I think with all the traffic and the customers that hang out and have meetings and or work to do, I think that the bathrooms should have a little more upkeep to them! They are overly used and not enough attention to cleaning them. Very disappointed.

Out office gets catering from panera all the time. The salads and sandwiches are amazing. Not to mention the bagels. Always a big hit.

The food was very good, I have enjoyed sandwiches as well as soups. I have encountered very prompt and friendly service with each visit. The only draw back is the way it is designed. It gets rather loud when it gets busy.
