Panara is great for breakfast or any meal. I love coming here on my days off with my mom to chat over a pastry or egg soufflé. The soups are delicious but you have to be careful to get there earlier for lunch or dinner to make sure they don't run out. This place is great with substitutions also. I... More

These are awesome. Tender enough to eat without cream cheese if fresh, but with hazelnut cream cheese, who doesn't want it on there? Clean place. Friendly staff. MarcyDiner tantrum scale of 5/5-no screaming kids.

I have been going to this restaurant regularly since it opened. I was often the first customer there each morning when it opened at 6 AM every day. I love the coffee.

Right off interstate & close to gas stations. Great value when looking for something above a Burger King or McDonalds. We visit frequently and enjoy visits with free WiFi.

I regularly stop in for bagels. They usually don't have Asiago in the afternoon which is my favorite. I love the fact that if I get coffee here that I can drink that cup in the store and refill up my cup for the road. I am love with the broccoli cheese soup and sesame asian salad.

Love eating here. Service is quick and food is reasonably priced. Their sandwiches are always excellent and they have very good soup with many selections. Is located in strip mall so parking is usually available. They have very good pastries and cookies for dessert.

Great soup and sandwiches. Fresh ingredients. Sandwiches made to order. Prompt service and very patient as you make your choices. The salads are always a good choice too.

Been to many Panera Breads around the country. This one is typical. The service was quick and the food good. Great place for lunch.

Stopped here for lunch on a Monday afternoon and it was fine for a Panera Bread. They have the usual offerings of soup, salad and sandwiches. I had the Fuji Apple Chicken salad with a small baguette of French bread and it was good. They had it prepared quickly and the prices are reasonable.

Thank whereigo
