I used to eat at Panera Bread a lot when I worked at a local hospital. Their asian chicken salad was fantastic. Loved it.

Disappointed because I love panera. They have started to cut back on ingredients. Sandwich had one small piece of tomato 1/4 piece of cheese and tons of arugula. Should be called arugula sandwich. $5. Won't go back to this panera.

Had breakfast while on vacation. Food, as usual was very good (everything bagle and a spinach soufflé with 2 coffee's) service was pleasant and prompt. Easy entry and exit to parking lot.

We often eat at Panera Bread when traveling. This one was on par with all of the other ones. My sandwich was not correct but it only took them minutes to make a new one and I really appreciated that. Otherwise all else was good. The restaurant and bathrooms were clean, which is very important to us.

Panera is consistent and the food is good for how fast it is. Wouldn't consider it cheap considering the price of half salad and soup but a good lunch spot.

Variety breads, sandwiches, soups and seasonal vegetable soups and bakery items. Eat in or take out. Free wifi. Reasonable prices. Plenty of seating and parking.

Apathetic staff and cold food – news flash – soup is supposed to be hot. Have been to many Panera Breads statewide and this is without a doubt the worst one I have been to. Would not go back to this one again.
