Not a big fan of Oanera, but this one seems to be a step below for me. The staff is nice, its the food...mainly the soups that seem to miss the mark. Those seem to like it as it is always busy so other seems to like it.

Similar to most other Panera Breads. If you like others, you'll like this one. I've been there half a dozen times in the last month. Food Prep: What impressed me most was the quality of the food preparation. My standard fare is the Pick 2 Steak and White Cheddar Panini along with the Bistro French Onion Soup. At all other...

We had 3 generations of family together at my son's house and nobody felt like going out. My son offered to order online and pick up food from Panera. I ordered the wild rice chicken soup with a whole grain dinner roll. I was able to spend time playing with my grandchildren while my son made the order and drove... More

Open later now which makes it very convenient for a late dinner. Staff has been consistently good over the past year of travel to that area.

I can't believe they didn't list it. I ordered the Strawberry Salad and when I tasted it I knew. I took it home in a box so I could research the ingredients and sure enough it has stevia. I have all sorts of food allergies so I should have known better and asked for an ingredient list but I was... More

Really love their soups and variety of breads. Usually just order a soup and sandwich - always prepared fresh and quickly.

We wanted a quick lunch. Panera Bread is always w good choice. I particularly liked this one, as they had wild rice soup, one of my favorites when I visit MN. For an additional dollar, you can upgrade from a cup to a bowl

We go there about once a week. Everything is freshly prepared. It is always busy mostly at lunch time.

A favorite meeting place. The food is consistently good, the atmosphere is not noisy and even those of us with some hearing issues can understand the conversations. It is Panera so it is "good" but not gourmet, still a great place to go.

Good, clean place but the addition of the drive through that wraps around three sides of the building and the amount of traffic on front side, makes this a tough place to walk to from the parking lot especially for older adults or families
