Fresh food, reasonable prices, healthy choices (if you want them). Portion size is appropriate to a healthy lifestyle. Fresh baked goods. Sandwiches are fresh. Staff is eager to correct any issues immediately. Recommended.

I don't visit Panera a lot but I have to say that when I do go there, there's always a problem with my order. Most recently, I couldn't find a paper menu to order and they kept pointing at the holder that had the catering menu in display. Rather than trying to help, they just told me it had to... More

We use rapid pickup often at panera. For unknown reasons this location gets our order mixed up 3 outta 5 times. Even with the double-check markings on he receipt.. Fruit or pastries will be left out, soufflés will be wrong kinds, dressing is left out. I haven't had too much trouble with sandwiches so that's a plus. Today my kid... More

I was pleased when my daughter suggested that a group of us meet at Panera for lunch. I have always enjoyed whatever I've ordered at Panera Restaurants up and down the east coast. That is, until today. I ordered a grilled cheese sandwich. Others in our group ordered salads, soups, and other sandwiches. The grilled cheese sandwich was served luke-warm,... More

This branch at least should be avoided. My lunch was served with dirty flatware which looked like it had just come off someone else's messy plate. It was disgusting. I complained and was just fobbed off like it was no big deal. Apart from being horrible this was a health and safety concern and corporate dealt with it by offering... More

So, ordering at the kiosk actually took longer than ordering with a person would have, but over time maybe it'll be faster. I do like it because I can see a picture of all the options. The food was dependably good, and it was ready reasonably quickly. I'll go back.

I love their soup and sandwiches - very quick to fill your order and I have never been disappointed - everything seems fresh and some times there is a line especially at lunch time but the staff moves it along very quickly

I was working in the area and stopped for a quick lunch. I has basil tomato soup and a turkey with avocado and bacon on sour dough. Yummy, fast and efficient , everything a quick lunch should be.

Very good casual take out on a lazy weekend morning or afternoon. Breakfast sandwiches are pretty good; lunch options are even better. Best baguettes for miles. We drive here just for those sometimes. Bagels are also the best. Line can be to the door on a Saturday morning, but it moves quickly. GM is a very friendly and concerned chap... More

Being a college student I seek out places to grab a bite to eat and do some studying. This is my favorite Panera to do that. The staff is always very friendly and I don't normally have trouble finding a place to sit down for a while. The menu is not bad, I have a few favorites which I rarely... More
