Stopped by just for an iced tea and 3 employees trying to look busy but not one of them would take my drink order. My home Panera has kiosk ordering which would have solved this problem. I could have ordered paid, and had my tea...More

Slow service Food is just ok, nothing special. Price is just ok. Could use better table & floor cleaners.

Went to have lunch. Needed to wait 30 minutes. But cashier did not tell it, found out it when was waiting in line for food. At least they should tell people about waiting time. Most of customers was disappointed.

Had a chicken noodle soup with Bread and my partner got the Thai Wonton Browth Bowl. They were okay but a little too salty. If you need a quick bite then panera is good as the service is fast but is nothing great.

Their turkey BLT with avocado is absolutely delicious. The bread is so good. They have really nice breads, especially their sourdough. The server at the register was very pleasant and helpful. The person making the sandwiches was as slow as molasses but at least the...More
