This location is always crowded being so close to a college, but they manage the crowds very well. They sometimes run out of soup and bread if you go in the early evening. The food is very good and the employees are pleasant and helpful....More

Panera Bread is a favorite. The soups are excellent - the turkey chili is, I think, the best. The sandwiches are very good. Well stacked and well made. It's nice to have the choice of salad, soup, sandwiches, and pastas and all are so good....More

Even though they were short staffed, the staff was very accommodating and friendly. Food was Panera's standard, very good. Those behind the counter were very friendly and courteous, just overworked.

There wasn't much to choose from due to late hours but they tried to accommodate me and did well. I had a chicken caesar salad an soup. Very good and not too heavy for sleeping.

We visited for a quick lunch. Three registers were open and cleared the backlog quickly. Food was prepared with just a short wait. As usual, the food was consistent and nicely prepared. Drink area could have used a little work.
