The food is always fresh, sandwiches are great but the broccoli cheese soup is to die for!! Desserts are good too.

With its accent on coffee, it's bewildering that this particular Panera can have five empty or nearly-empty coffee urns at the same time. Not an isolated event, by the way. Last occasion: yesterday September 10. The nicest of employees is standing right next to the coffee urns to help customers work the new computer ordering system which is just a... More

Very nice for a quick meal. Relaxing atmosphere. More of a bakery and sandwich shop. The food is good and so is the ambience is nice. if you try it, you'll like it.

The sandwiches are made fresh and the broccoli cheese soup is amazing! I really don't eat much soups but I love Panera's soup. The Greek salad is great as well.

Have been coming here for years, mainly to meet friends. It's a comfortable place physically in a convenient location. The coffee and milk is marginal at best, and often worse than marginal, e.g., empty coffee urns or cold, and we've even gone through a long phase when the milk urns weren't clean. At breakfast, when I come, I try to... More

I had 1/2 turkey with chips and a chocolate chip cookie. It was all just okay. It is overpriced for what it is. The sandwiches aren't big and they don't come stacked. They are very basic.

Great sandwich and salad combinations. Soups are good, but order carefully if on a restricted diet. They have brochures with caloric values of the meals. You can make good choices if you take time to look over the menu.

This is a comfortable place to sit and talk with food in front of you. Moreover it's quite good value. But its advertising and my experience make me rate it as "less than promised". As a bakery ("Panera Bread" remember), it uses a lot of white flour and sugar. Hard to find nutrition in the bakery department. As a coffee... More

Today we went to Panera for breakfast and the bagels were really fresh. I would advise getting there early because the plain bagels go fast.
