I've always liked Panera restaurants. The quality is much better than a greasy burger. This location is typically very busy, but they do well to serve guest in a timely manner. On one occasion, they screwed up my order. The manager promptly apologized and remade my order himself, as fast as he could. Panera is a bit pricey in comparison to other chain "fast food" but the product and service typically justifies the difference.

Panera is a favorite of ours. We only visited this one to pick up a sweet treat. It was getting later in the evening and the selection was small, but the quality of the food was excellent.

On any given morning, you will find lots of women's groups meeting for breakfast or lunch at Panera. The food is good, the prices are reasonable and the bright, pleasantly decorated interior is a huge draw. Love this place.

I always order the Bacon Turkey Bravo after having tried everything else on the menu. The bread they make isnt anything special really - doughy and sponge-like, not artisan at all. Everything is huge and the pastries arent healthy but wth? ... its filling and tastes good! The broccoli cheese soup in a bread bowl is another gutbuster but oh so good. Share with a friend and save calories.
