The staff was friendly, the food hold, and the salads, soups, and desserts are to die for. Awesome clam chowder.

It is always great to stop here for lunch. Even though very, very busy, the staff is efficient and quick. One guy who serves at the tables is especially great as he moves about and is always considerate of guests. I've come to like ordering from a table using my iPhone app--much, much better than communicating in line and you... More

I could not find my favorite item and had been told that they had just changed the menu yesterday. I was so disappointed. After some debating, I chose half a turkey sierra,which is a favorite of mine and the Thai Garden wonton broth. This did not disappoint me and now is a favorite of mine. It was very tasty and...

I've been to this location twice in the last week and on both occasions I was disappointed. Cashiers are hard to understand and don't look you in the eye. I was almost charged for a soda I never ordered. My free bagel turned out to be a dry, flat, stale roll of some sort. My chicken salad was hard to... More

We had a 60 person meeting at the Hyatt place dulles and we ordered lunch from Panera. We had several different Sandwiches as well as salads and cookies. The breads and meats were fresh. It was really good.

I go here pretty regularly. My favorite is the cinnamon crunch bagel, although the soup in a breadbowl is also excellent. The only complaint I have is the scones seem dry, but they have so much more that I just order something else.

The bread is fresh and the ingredients in perfect proportion. Even when there is a big line, they keep it moving. I wish they had the Summer Corn Chowder all the time. I haven't been able to find it there for a while.

seemed they took the bread way too seriously when pricing it and while it was tasty, it is nothing spectacular or worth all the hype
