It amazes me that a chain restaurant can have such continued quality nationwide. We ordered our meals on line and when we arrived it was hot and ready. The food constancy of this chain is outstanding.

Who doesn't love Panera bread!! Everything is good. I love the different soups in the bread bowl. Fresh sandwiches and you just have to get a bakery item to finish it off.
