Nice Quality Lunch

Very nice flat bread sandwich of ham, chicken & Swiss, along with bistro french onion soup. While the preparation was quick and the quality was quite good, the cashier wasn't the most hospitable in the world

I was invited to attend a luncheon for Hospice. We had a wonderful meeting to help us get through the holidays. We were all surprised to find out that our lunch was catered by Panera's I got one of the box lunches which had a nice big turkey, avocado, bacon sandwich. It was very good. I also got chips and...

Found a piece of foil in my turkey chili. Notified an employee who said she'd tell her manager. No apology, nothing. So much for Panera's vow of serving clean food.

I ordered online and zoomed by the store to pick it up and return to work. You can't beat the convenience. It was all ready for me when I got there. I had a flatbread sandwich and soup and it really hit the spot. You can hardly beat the convenience.

Soup selection on a Sunday evening after 5 was great! Their soup is excellent for a cold evening! Turkey Chili was spicy hot but delicious!!!

I often eat lunch here because it is convenient to other places where I shop and get my hair done. The service is good, and the food is always great!

All around I love Panera and this one was standard except their wifi defied all attempts to connect. I tried several devices. They weren't that busy so unless several people were streaming netflix, they shouldn't have been overloaded. The staff was pleasant, served great coffee and food but when I asked about the wifi, they said "it should be working!"

Any time you go, breakfast, lunch or dinner there is always something good to choose. Yum bagels, cheese soufflés, sandwiches, salads, soups. Friendly staff and nice place to meet friends. Free Wi-Fi. Make sure you try their cookies and brownies.

I got the Fuji apple chicken salad with the dressing on the side and it was delicious. My daughter didn't you pick to with their French onion soup and a turkey avocado BLT and both were very good. We were going to buy six bagels but it was about the same price to get 13 which was great.
