I love the fresh food at Panera's along with the ability to just sit back and chill. I, always, bring my Kindle and read. I feel a kinship with the other diners who are doing homework or just visiting with friends. Probably my favorite place to kick back and CHILL!

I had the tuna and clam chowder. Tuna is not loaded with mayo and served on ficotta bread. Also served with tomato, lettuce, and onion. The cup of clam chowder was good. My biggest complaint is cost and tables need to be cleaned more regular.

Easy to find and most people know the menu....something for everyone. Sandwiches are freshly made to order and you can customize to suite an individual's palate...fresh coffee til 2pm daily after that you take your chances.

We were traveling with family including children 5 to 14 and one (the 11 year old) specifically asked for Panera from past experience. I was hesitant since we would be hitting the restaurant at high noon. We did not have the app downloaded and we only had a half hour. We got our order in quickly, it was ready quickly... More

It was a lunchtime stop that made this Panera standout thanks to their employee Alex. I walked in and explained to her that the website wasn't working for the nutrition information on their menu and she jumped right in and showed me all of the information I needed to help my party order with health restrictions. Alex really went above... More

While traveling to Peoria this was a frequent stop for dinner. When you are hungry for some good soup and a good sandwich, this is the place to go.

I have been a few times for breakfast the sandwich I had was ok. The lady at the check out counter was really nice and polite. Their coffee is not very good though. It is an ok place to meet people, but a lot of better places for breakfast.

First time visit. Had heard glowing reviews about food. It did not strike us as anything special. We ordered a wrap that was good but not great. This probably would not be my first choice of restaurants in the area.

I visited for lunch and ordered the combo soup/panini deal. The Black bean soup is very,very good and the Chicken Chipotle make the meal a winner! I had the coffee with the meal. It's crowded around 11 - 12:30, but you can still find a seat with the early crowd leaving. Make your order and then find a table and... More

We ate lunch here. They were very busy. It seemed like the prices were higher. The food was fine. My guest really liked the soup. This is a nice place to go to eat a low calorie but healthy meal.
