Not bad but way over priced. The Ham and cheese was made with no input from me. Way to much junk on it and I was even given a choice of bread. Go to Sub Stop for a better value or even Subway.

I tried the steak and white cheese panini. Very skimpy on the steak more onions and horseradish than anything. Staff really needs to pick up their customer service skills and be a little more friendly and engaging with the customers. I am willing to try a different location maybe my experience will be a little more positive. Pumpkin spice Bagel... More

Staff was nice but food was average. This was my 1st time at a Panera, wasn't convinced that I need to go back.

I don't get to Panera too often, but I have to say that I love their French Onion soup. Regarding this specific Panera, it could be better but it could be worse. Dirty dishes were stacked up, the staff was a bit rude and pretentious, and there were a lot of uncleaned tables. The one located at Arapahoe Crossing is... More

Lunch here recently on a Tuesday. Free parking in a lot shared with other businesses. Noticed quite a bit of trash on ground in parking lot. Staff seemed uninterested in helping with questions. Vegan in our party had trouble finding anything to eat on menu and had a plain bagel and an apple for lunch. Very limited options for vegetarians.... More

Good service (if you don't want to be waited on), good soups, especially the tomato bisque. The sandwiches are often too chewy to enjoy, but the salads are good. Bagels are good for a quick breakfast.

One of the employees opened the door to the kitchen and there was trash on the floor. My salad was lukewarm and my husbands sandwich... More

Time to say good bye to Panera. Over priced food and service very poor. Every time I visit, I wounder why did I came in! Lunch for me and my two daughters, ages 12 and 10 cost over $35.00. For what? Two peanut butter sandwiches and a aziago roast beef. Also, any business that asks you to stop following the... More

Service was great. That's where it ends. I ordered chicken Alfredo, had Driven all night for a funeral, was HUNGRY, tired, and anything would have been good. Not sure how you screw up canned or frozen onion soup, but they did...SALTY. Chicken alfredo, Just as bad, if not worse, the "smoothies" I had mango I think, kid had strawberry, we... More
