“Good fresh food for lunches”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

For a good soup, salad or sandwich, Panera Bread is a good option. The food is fresh and it's relatively fast. They have some good pastries, the pumpkin muffins are very good. One challenge is that they are very crowded at lunch time at this location. Very crowded...! You can wait 15 minutes for your take out order. They are usually consistent on the food so you can count on it being what you expected which is nice when I am out and picking up a healthy quick lunch. I think they are a little pricey for a lunch place, particularly for soups. Our kids like the food there although they like their winter soups and wish they would keep them all year (like the chili).

“Always Fresh, Choices Prepared to Order”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

For delicious Danish pastry, a varity of fresh breads, tasty sandwich choices, soups and salads made to order it is hard to find a better place. Unique in assuring freshness, all baked goods unsold by closing time are donated to feed the hungry. Therfore, each morning starts with fresh from the oven baked goods for the day.

“Cheap Sustainence”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

Good bread, yummy (but very sweet) pastries.

The soup, salads, etc, are all what I'd call "workmanlike". Nothing wrong, absolutely unexceptional, and quite inexpensive. Service, such as it is, is cheerful, friendly, and rather inept, although not offensively so.

They now bring the food to the table, you don't have to carry it after your beeper goes off any more, but frankly, it's still fast food.

As fast food, it beats the tar out of Micky D's and that lot, though.
