I am so frustrated. We are in between softball games and wanted something healthy. We realize this is not fast food, but give me a break. It was not crowded. The staff should have told us they were running behind. I finally had to walk...More

A bakery and a healthy place for good soup salad or sandwich or combination . Food place to converse or work or just be alone. Drive through is great.

Convenient location off I-85 in Gastonia with a drive-thru option. Always a good option for healthier fast food & perfect for a quick meal while heading to/from Charlotte/Douglas Airport.

We generally like Panera foods. The broccoli soup here is below par...kind of gloppy. Bacon, turkey bravo sandwich was pretty good.
