Nice store and good seating. Food is very good. Get there during lunch and you mat be waiting in line. They do have internet ordering right in the store for charges.Seems like a newer store.

This has become a go-to for us. Not expensive for lunch or dinner, and not a pile of high calorie food (get blinders to avoid the bakery). Always fresh and clean with excellent, fast service

Breakfasts and lunches to die for. Miss the French Onion soup, though. I think you'll regret taking it off the menu. Pastries-yum!!! Breads-yum, yum. Soups- oh, yeah. Salads and sandwiches??? Can't stop us!!

Panera has a wonderful selection of lunch items from sandwiches to soups to salads. Great place to have a light lunch. Love their French Onion soup and their bakery products fresh and baked on premises.

Panera Bread used to be a great place to eat. But as other reviewers have mentioned, they have room for improvement. My salad was bland. Lack of dressing or the dressing didn't have any flavor. My parents don't complain unless it is really bad so they didn't have an opinion. The cleanliness needs improvement and their staff need to open... More

The cashiers and other staff are very friendly and fast! Food is always delicious. All menus have calorie counts printed on them which is very helpful. There ice teas are amazing! The pick 2 is a great deal plus you can add a baked good for only .99 The Kale grilled chicken-salad is my new favorite!
