Panera puts on a great lunch and breakfast is getting better. If you are a member of their Rewards Club they will remember your birthday with a delicious brownie or other goodie from the bakery.
The food is always top notch and the Pick Two of half a sandwich and a cup of soup is the perfect lunch.
Soup and sandwich choices change often.
Panera Bread demographics include 20- and 30-somethings armed with computers and various tablets and smart phones. The Panera WiFi does not seem to restrict access to naughtier sites while dining (as do McDonald's and others). Sitting around the fire place with coffee, a Danish and a laptop is a pleasant way to spend a morning.
Food costs at Panera Bread are skewed on the high side but the quality is good.
As I said earlier, breakfast is getting better although it doesn't seem well customer-attended.

Food is slightly on the pricier side

Several visits for lunch. I like the soup and sandwich combos.
Prompt counter service and food prepared quickly.

I go there several times a year and am never disappointed! Good food & service! Can just hang out and even bring a computer as they have wifi!

Me and my husband go to this Panera Bread a lot and we are very happy with the service, cleanliness and food that we get here. We are fans of Panera Bread to begin with. I love their Fuji Apple Chicken Salad. The prices are a little high for what you get and our bill is usually in the $20 range for 2 people. We always gripe about it, but we always go back because their food is so yummy.

Great food, friendly staff, always a good choice for breakfast or lunch. Inside, you could be in any Panera's -this one is not unique in any way. But you can count on a good meal, free WiFi, and clean, comfortable surroundings.
