It was a rainy and cold day so I thought a bread bowl with soup would be perfect. I ordered online and was surprised to see my order waiting on me when I arrived. The soup did not disappoint!

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.
