I hadn’t been in awhile. Panera use to have a great Italian sandwich. Cold cut! It use to be pretty big and hearty. They switched it to a hot Italian sandwich. Small and expensive. My wife and I had a small brisk lunch for $...More

Menu yummy, but the food is for those with no dietary restrictions. Much of the menu is high in fat. Not for the weight watcher!

I was completely disappointed in this Panera. The place was dirty and the staff was unhelpful and clueless. The manager was trying to get people to work, but his leadership style was to instruct, but not supervise. The employees seemed to ignore him.

Fast service. Excellent food, bread, pasteries and coffee. Chicken Caesar salad is my favorite, then a cherry Danish or cinnamon roll (discounted with meal). The sourdough and French bread you can get with your salad is excellent. Very tasty and soft, the best I've had.

This location goes one step further in that the staff will bring your order to your table-It is a very busy location for lunch-since it is located in an area with many offices-My only complaint was that the bathroom was in need of a cleaning
