For $13 you would expect a 1/2 sandwich. The piece of bread is bigger than the sandwich. And they don't even fill the soup bowl. Don't waste your money. The last time I will ever eat here.

Great place to meet before work as they open early. Staff is always very pleasant and as usual let you sit for as long as you like. As always, free wifi.

Really a rip-off. Will not return. Manager also shouted across the room, "WHAT?" when a cashier had a question for him. The cashier was smart and said, "I'm not shouting this." He then came over to her.

These comments are for this location, but they apply to several other Paneras as well. First, their coffee is terrible. It leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. It's just not good coffee. In fact, I have given up and now get morning coffee at...More
