“Woman at register handled the order like she owned the place”
Review of Panera Bread

After a long wait during a late lunch at an apparently popular Panera Bread, a woman took control of the register and carefully gave instruct on what she thought would be a complex system of ordering that was being implemented. It was a textbook example of excellent customer service right down to updates on reward redemption opportunities, free bagels, and discount sweets. The fact the process of ordering a meal and paying for it being complex is not an overall good thing but the employee made the process transparent and that is what you want.

I had an half-n-half with a tasty Chipotle Chicken Avocado Melt and a clam chowder. This came with a baguette which is interesting given I already had half a sandwich yet it went well with the chowder. The iced tea was so fresh that it melted a cup of ice on impact.

I enjoyed the experience and cannot wait to revisit the Panera in this exquisite shopping plaza.

Autumn squash soup and Fuji Apple Chicken Salad were a perfect coupling for a lite and fresh dinner. Delicious!! Fast service, however the seating area and tables definitely needed attention. I had to clean off an empty booth for a place to be seated...and the restaurant was not that busy.

Ate here for a quick lunch with the wife during a break from business. I'm not a big health food advocate but I do like the food here. My typical is a simple turkey sandwich and the chips. It always is good. They do have a wide variety of other items, including the breakfast sweets and bagels. Can always count on the food here.

Always reliable for food, service and value. The only thing I didn't like was their sweet tea...it wasn't nearly as good as I had before, more like the tea had been over-brewed. Otherwise, everything else was tasty.

We had a sandwich and a salad. We also took home the bagel special offered on Tuesdays. I got my free Birthday pastry too! What a great visit! All the food was fresh and delicious
