All ways solid food. Good atmosphere, decent WiFi connection, clean with a good vibe going on. What can you say... It's a Panera

I had a half portion Asian Sesame Chicken and my friend ordereld the chicken Greek half portion. Even though they showed us what portion size a half vs. whole were,we were expecting more than we got. The half portion was more like a side order. Based on the commercials, I think I was expecting more flavor and taste. The Asian... More

The cheese pastry and fruit cup are a great choice. Any time we get bread, pastries, sandwiches, soups or just about everything on this menu, we are not disappointed. Good eats and prices are fair.

Panera is a chain but they do a very good job with the quality of food served. The service is good & the servings are a bit on the small size for the price. They have an bakery in house that also serves up yummy pastries. Its basically a deli type of place & has free wifi. I usually go... More

Went here for a quick and simple lunch once and ended going back twice more because everything was SOOO good! Their black bean soup looks like dirt but it is hands down the best soup I have ever had. I was disappointed when we went back and it wasn’t available – I guess they mix it up every day to... More

I come here about once a week for lunch. The soups are really good, the sandwiches and salads are well prepared. The staff are friendly, call customers by name, and there's a low turnover in staff. I think that's a good sign for the restaurant. Although it's a large chain, this Panera just seems to be better run than others,... More

I like dropping in at Panera for casual meetings. The coffee is inexpensive, refills are free, and the seats are comfortable. There are all sorts of baked products you can share at your meeting, too.
