Today we came in for Breakfast. The cashier forgot to ring up my coffee after I went to track down why my coffee never appeared at the coffee counter. I had a young child with me who was hungry and I could not stand in line again. No one offered to make this right. Not good.

I have had great lunches there so we decided to try breakfast. Overpriced, and nothing special. I ordered one of the "soufflés" and it was cold. I told the cashier, she directed me to a microwave(dirty) to heat it up myself! for the price of our meal we could have gone to a restaurant and gotten a decent meal.

Almost always very busy, this place serves good food. I dislike having to order at a counter but that is the way it is with this chain. The takeout breads and pastries are excellent and worth the price. I ordered a loaf of bread with basil and tomatoes and it was the size of 2 loaves.

We dropped into Panera Bread for the first time for breakfast and had a very good experience. The restaurant is large with both indoor/outdoor seating and clean. Our server was friendly and the breakfast sandwiches were excellent.

I frequently meet my "girlfriends" there, grab a booth and have delicious hazelnut coffee and a snack and get "caught up"! The atmosphere creates a very inviting and creative space...homey! I love their breakfast egg/bacon souffle, and for lunch or dinner, I enjoy their salads w/chicken added. The food is always fresh and the staff are very friendly!

I've been to Panera Bread restaurants around the USA. This one, like the others, is a fine place to eat or snack. My chicken avocado melt and cashew chicken salad were quite tasty.. It came with a piece of French bread.

I am working my way thru the menu with each visit. I love the Potato Soup, the Macaroni and Cheese is scrumptious, and their sandwiches are big and delicious! The breads that come with the soups and that is used for the sandwiches is fresh and again, delicious! No matter where I am, I can count on the foods to... More

I love Panera Bread. I find I feel "fed" when I eat there, and not like I've stuck a bunch of junk in my mouth. It's fast and relatively well priced. My experience at this Panera Bread location is that the service staff are very friendly and efficient. They're always pretty full, which is also a good sign.

Very clean, food and service were awesome! We were a large group and they had no problem at all getting our food out in a timely manner.
