I ordered boxed lunches to go from their catering menu online. Read each option carefully to pick sandwiches without nuts. On the order form under the special instructions, twice I noted "No Nuts, very allergic". Some of the sandwich breads arrived containing nuts that were not in the description. No one called me, no bread substitutions were made. Clearly they... More

I like Panera and have a frequent membership with Panera--in addition, I have visited a number of Panera locations is a variety of states. But this one has a severe management problem. Ordering and paying went well--front people were pleasant. Ordered a plain bagel to be toasted--was sent to the wait line for food and it took more than 15... More

I try not to go too often because of the price and serving size. I can never order a skimpy salad from them again. I like the Sierra Turkey so I am glad that remains on the menu. Face it, they are a chic fast food chain and you pay a bit more than you should. Tables are not always... More

Standard Panera menu. Staff very friendly. I found only 2 outlets for charging, both at tables. My local Panera's has one at each table/booth/sitting area.

We were outside in the heat for two hours and went into this location for lunch, the manager was wonderful and could not do enough for us. The food was fresh and the drinks were cold and this is what we badly needed. Would recommend this location to anyone in the Hershey area.

This is your typical Panera for food and service, noting outstanding but no glaring deficiencies either. I opted for a simple ham and cheese sandwich, the taste of which was very ordinary. The kids had soup, which was just right for them, and hard to find for them anywhere else. My wife and daughters like the salad options, which is... More

Love their salads! This is the place to go for healthier choices in fast food. Salads, sandwiches, soup, bagels, coffee, smoothies, and fresh baked goods. I love their iced tea. FYI, this store donates to the local food banks to give back to the community that it serves.
