Stopped by for lunch while passing through the area. Our food was good and the service was good. Typically Panera with a larger seating area and outdoor patio.

I really enjoyed the ancient grains salad here. The dressing pairs well with the meal. As always, the baguette was tasty as well. I would return here for sure.

They have the best baked goods! If you don't get there early the scones will be gone, but they have so many good things to eat, the bread bowl is really good too!

You really can't go wrong with Panera Bread...it's a nice alternative to McDonalds, etc. The offering of items for any meal is awesome. I visit a few times a week. I love their green tea!

Good variety of soup sandwiches and salads here all made fresh. My only problem is not being able to turn down the $1 desert sitting on the counter infront of you as you order. Darn you for such delicious treats, oh the temptation!

They have the best rye bread and they will slice it for you. The pastries are so good. They have the hottest coffee on the planet I think I don't know how they keep it hot?
