Stopped in for a quick morning bite at 9:20 am on a Friday morning, after the morning rush. There were several employees behind the counter and the wait to take of our order was short. The food was fine, but the coffee situation deplorable. They were out of two of the coffees I normally choose and despite several reminders the problem was not fully resolved. I spoke to the manager as well and that resulted in very little. After 25 minutes and having eaten our food, the coffee situation was not resolved. While apologies were offered, that doesn't get coffee in the pots. They need to get their game up especially since a huge new Starbucks Reserve in opening directly across the street. I'll probably give them another chance, but that will be it. Extremely poor management!!

Great coffee, service, and cinnamon roll. I have ordered large orders to go and they are sure to not make you wait any longer than what is necessary.

Brocolli cheese soup and half a sandwich always makes for a better winter day! I like that Panera does "trials" on the possible new additions to their menu...A consistently good experience.

I am a diehard fan of Panera and I would never get sick of eating here. The mac and cheese, tortellini alfredo, lemonade, smoothies, frontega chicken panini, and broccoli cheddar soup are my all time favorites. If you get a meal with a drink, you can get a bakery item for 99 cents!
