Any Panera Bread is a good place to stop for lunch but this one is especially nice. From the parking lot to the dining room, the facilities are clean, orderly and inviting. The staff is warm, professional and obviously well trained. We ordered the Fuji Apple Salad (x2). I had a Diet Coke. She had a water. Our order came out in less than 3 minutes and both were well appointed with a tasty mix of greens, Apple, candies nuts and grilled chicken. We ate outside on the patio and had a wonderful time.

We drove in for a quick breakfast before IWU graduation. The service was very good and the breakfast sandwiches were hot and tasty. We have been stopping in here for the past 4 years my sons been at college and we've never had a bad experience at this location. Very consistent!

Overall it's a standard Panera, though its location doesn't seem to accommodating to sitting outside. The reason for the review is the problem with ordering. I wanted a chicken caesar salad, a standard thing off the menu. The young lady asked if I wanted a kale salad and I said no. Then she went about ordering the kale salad but put the caveat that there should be no kale in the salad! Somehow that ended up also meaning no cheese, so it was wrong on delivery. I had no idea the push to sell kale was so popular in the northern parts of Illinois. Maybe they should just stick to what works.

Favorite stop for me when in Bloomington. The staff is always nice.I order online and took food back to my hotel room. The food was hot, ready and waiting for when I arrived. Very pleased with this new service.
