Please note that this review is for their delivery service only. I used to eat at a nearby Panera many years ago when I worked in Raleigh. I made my way through most of their menu and it was all good. Soups, salads, sandwiches, pastries … yum. Then I started working in Durham near Duke Regional Hospital and that was... More

The food is always good, although they have sometimes been "out" of item we wanted to order. Great place to relax either inside or out and watch people, Good safe, patrolled area.

I love Panera! This one has a nice environment, clean and spacious. I loved the tablets at the entrance, where you can order yourself.

I ordered the Soba Noodle salad and he told me that it is not available before noon even online it said 10;30. When i informed him about this he... More

Have eaten at many Panera bread locations. This one was neat and clean. Cashier was very nice and food was prepared as ordered. I order the lentil quinoa bowl quite often and the one here was good. Limited parking is available with additional street and lot parking near by.

No matter where I go, I know that I am going to get quality food at Panera. I didn't like the pumpkin bagel, but that's my fault. The person behind the counter gave me a heads up that it wasn't her favorite. I went with it anyway.
