“Good food, but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Our Panera has consistently good food. Love the Asian chicken salad, Fuji Apple chicken salad & black bean soup. My pet peeve about Panera is having to bus my own table. I have no problem taking my dishes somewhere, but I usually have some salad left in the bowl which I then have to scrape into the stinky garbage. I appreciate the fact that they aren't using throw-away plates but tables should be bussed.

“Great lunches made to order”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

Stopped in with mom for lunch while out shopping. Friendly staff. Delicious lunches and baked goods. Each had a "You Pick Two" combo with a 1/2 sandwich and a cup of soup. Can also get salad, whole sandwiches, pastas, etc. Join their rewards club to accumulate points for free beverages, pastries, and more. Free wifi.

Will go back for a convenient and delicious lunch.

“Box lunch heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We had box lunches from here and they were awesome. assume the sandwiches and cookies are available at the store, and were delicious. I had grilled Chicken Caesar and a shortbread cookie. The lunch came with Kettle chips and a pickle spear. Lovely!

“Tasty and reasonably healthy meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

We never stop at and of the other restaurants on this hill because Panera is so good. Have been visiting Panera since the got their start as St Louis Bread Company when we lived in the St Louis area. Have never had a bad meal at one of their locations.

“Never Met A Bad Panera!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

This Panera is as good as any other we've dined at. We know we'll always get a good sandwich/service here. Just like all other Panera's - busy at lunch.
