This is the first time at a Panera and I though it was an excellent find. The food was fresh, healthy and delicious. There was plenty to eat. The service was excellent and everyone was very helpful. The restaurant has a lovely, inviting atmosphere and the presentation of food very nice. I think it was a good price for the... More

I ordered lunch for about 15 people for pick up from the catering department at Panera bread. This was my first time ordering from the catering and it was absolutely perfect. They packaged everything so that it was presentable and we had everything we needed. The food was terrific and we had more than enough. I will definitely be catering... More

We eat Panera often and this location follows the formula. Nothing out of the ordinary although Panera is a ,Amir step up from most fast food. Normal soups and sandwiches. We hit it late so pastries were a bit thin. Did notice the self order kiosks. Did not use them but glad to see the option.

This was my first time using the drive through at this Panera Bread. I ordered the salad with the fruit and sesame seed dressing. I checked my bag and the first thing I was disappointed with was the bread was just sitting on top of the salad container with no wrapping. The salad container seemed small for the price paid...

So, I think Panera is great as far as the food and the friendliness of the staff, and cleanliness of the restaurant. I am part of the My Panera program that sends you coupons and different promotional offers. So, I decided to finally take them up on an offer. It was a rainy day so I decided to use their... More

I have eaten at this Panera Bread location for a number of years. I guess it is a sign of the times, but it seems the portion size is decreasing. Still, the tomato soup is delicious. After a soup and salad, or soup and sandwich, my wife loves the Pumpkin muffie. Problem is, they seem to run out about lunch... More
