“bread with bread”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

we ordered a sandwich which I am accustomed to being comprised of bread and some fillings. what would be a suitable side to go along with such a sandwich. perhaps a potato or pasta salad. perhaps some chips. but no. the side was bread. don't think I will go back.

“Good for light lunches”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

My wife loves this place and it's nice for a light lunch such as 1/2 sandwich and soup. Their bakery goods are tasty too!

“Great pricey sandwhiches, bad service.”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

I live in the area and unfortunately, this is the closest Panera. Love the bagels, but why do we have to pay $1.50 for cream cheese? I find their sandwhich prices too steep. The atmosphere is nice with the free wifi but what I dread the most are the staff. They aren't very nice or friendly. They rush you while you order. The 'Associate Trainee' at the counter asked me a question and when I politely said, 'pardon me?' she repeats the question with a bark. 'I said, do you want cream cheese!' Jeez- having a bad day are we? I'd rather drive to Rancho C to receive better customer service.
