I admit this is not my favorite place but my wife enjoys their menu choices. Perhaps I need to make other selections until I find what I like.

They have some of the best bagels and cream cheese! Highly recommend the honey walnut cream cheese! They also have very good salads!

Clean place, friendly service and food was good. Had broccoli and cheddar soup and a roasted chicken with avocado sandwich. Good flavor but maybe a little pricey for soup and sandwich.

Food quality and speed was very good. Was somewhat put off by employees taking a smoke break out on the curb of the restaurant.

This Panera is near my home and I've thoroughly enjoyed eating here literally hundreds of times. It is consistently very good in quality of food, efficient and personable service, and friendly staff.

Everything tastes good, but the cost is more than average. The amounts are small so value not the best.

Been here four times in the past six months and still waiting for that "awe" experience that friends have been telling me about with the FSM establishment. Each time I have gone into the restaurant, I have met service people ignoring customers, a "manager" whining about being at the store since 7a.m. (it was 7p.m.) and that he would have... More
