Presentation was good. My food was luke warm (wonton soup). My lil one got a grilled cheese and apple. They did a crap job at cutting the apple for her, leaving the core and seeds. They shouldn't ask if they are gonna serve it with the steam, seeds and core still on it. IMO. Husband got the broccoli cheddar soup.... More

I use this Panera all the time. Love the food for their healthy options. People who work there are nice and efficient. CONS: always busy/crowded so they don't have the time to clean tables. You may have to jump on one as someone is leaving and do it yourself. No drive thru either, and very small parking lot. Doesn't stop... More

Only one person at the counter to take orders, so had a to wait a while to give my order. But, the young man was helpful, friendly and efficient. My quinoa greek salad was very good, and enough for a second meal.

I had a monthly meeting with one of my fellow Board members. My coffee was delicious and made to order and I had a large selection and variety of pastries. It was easy to find a corner to have a meeting and there was wi-fi.

This Panera Bread is a good option if you are staying within the area. I've found Panera bread to be a good choice to meet the needs of any food preference. I personally would suggest the tomato soup and the grilled cheese. The prices are reasonable and the service is excellent.

Panera's are pretty standard and that means you know what you get. Good food, good coffee or iced tea and fast service. This was a stop on a road trip. Wanted cold Iced Tea and a snack. All was good, in and out quickly

Visited this location with my family and they did not have straws, lids, frozen drink was half melted and the chicken sandwich was low on the chicken. Bathroom was dirty and needed attention and my wife slipped on ice away from the drink area. Not what I am used to at a Panera!

Panera offers a huge variety and recently we visited for salads. The Thai chicken salad was delightful. The right amount of taste and spice. The wifi and comfortable seating allowed us to take care care of some business while relaxing. Enjoyed the fact the staff at this particular restaurant had someone constantly cleaning the dining room to maintain a feeling... More

While on a business trip, a comrade an I were looking for dinner. She was from Guam and had never been to a Panera. I explained the 'You pick two' meal and we ordered. The food was fresh and delicious. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxing. It was an enjoyable evening.
