“Eating Lite at Night!!!”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

It was a weekday night and was looking for a place that was quick and good. Pandora Bread recently opened and I had not tried it before. We entered the restaurant which as not crowded at all. They quickly took our ordered and found a nice place to sit and watch the traffic go by. Order came quickly with me ordering the potato soup and smoked turkey with cheese sandwich. My wife ordered the French onion soup and a spinach salad. My kind of place - soup came out before the entrees. This is the right way to do it. I finished the soup and the entree came out right on time. They gave each of us a piece of their French bread - yummy. A great night was had by everyone we spoke to about it - even the mayor was eating there. Try it - you will love it.

“Excellent Flavor But Crowded/ Expensive”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

The food cost is a little high for a cup of soup, half a grilled cheese and bacon sandwich, and a drink was $11 an for a cup of soup, and a turkey salad, and no drink was $10. But it was FANTASTIC, and fresh probably will never eat here again due to the cost and atmosphere but it was really delicious!!! Drive thru or call ahead may be an option in the future
