Looking for a quick lunch. Ordered autumn squash soup. Wife had tomato bisque. Both were excellent. Ready quickly. Flavorful, very tasty. Would certainly come back.

This Panera location was right next door to my motel, which made my morning coffee run quite convenient. Pastries and bagels are good and reasonably priced. For lunch, I can never pass up Panera's macaroni and cheese. Panera also has a great rewards program. I am always earning discounts and/or free items.

Yes its a chain but their range of breads, sandwiches and salads make a nice change from fried food and its very reasonably priced. Also has free Wi-Fi.

DO NOT GO TO THIS LOCATION! I'm a loyal Panera patron and even have the rewards card, but the way I was treated at this location was horrible. I walked into their location 10 minutes to 6pm and waited behind a gentleman who was ordering his food, but when it came time for me to get helped the cashier told... More

Apparently I visited when they did not have their "A" team working - it wasn't even their "B" or "C" team. Disinterested employees who made you feel like it was an inconvenience to take your order and prepare your meal. The 'chef' was chomping on gum while preparing our food, which I found to be rather offensive. I finally did... More

I love Panera. It's affordable, tasty and healthy enough. I can come here during lunch time and always get good service.

If you don't feel like preparing a meal, Panera Bread has wonderful salads, soup and sandwiches and the quality of their food is really good. You can order online for a "Rapid Pickup" and when you get there you don't have to stand in line to pay and your order will probably be ready. It has become our "Go To"... More

We went in here because it looked like quite a few of the local office workers were going here for lunch. What a great place to have good simple food options. i chose from the "pick two" option off the menu. This is where you pick any two of either - cup of soup, 1/2 salad, 1/2 sandwich or flatbread....

Very nice Panera restaurant. Good food just like most Panera restaurants. The wait staff was friendly. Inside setting was nice. The mall it's in isn't the nicest and the area seems a little run down.

Had been traveling by car for three days and when we stopped for the night in Nashville I was so excited to see ps era bread downtown. I know. I know. All those places on Broadway but I was craving a fresh salad and a great bowl of soup. They delivered on both! There was a large convention in town... More
