“Panera”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Cafeteria service of decent sandwiches on a reasonable selection of breads. Family friendly and a good deal better than the fast-food emporia.

“Sandwiches, soups, and bagels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Panera has a variety of savory and sweet bagels, soup/sandwich combos, salads, cookies, brownies, and bread bowls. The kids' menu has a healthier selection than most places. The cinnamon crunch bagel, chicken noodle soup, and grilled cheese are particularly good.

“My regular coffee-house”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Food is good, you can sit for long time with laptop or just read. What I don't like is the invasion of nannies with troops of toddlers and younger. I'm happy that they have a place to go -- but it gets a little noisy and crowded.

“This is a great quiet place for meeting and coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Paneras in any neighborhood or location is a consistent coffee and bagels-pastry-our preference to Dunkin Donuts---free refills too!

“The only good thing they have is outside seating”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Many students hanging out with a drink for all day long. I have tried almost half of their food in the menu and nothing is special and overpriced. The only thing that you might like is the outside seating of this cafe with a drink. Even their muffins or cookies is not edible.
