I tried the broth bowl today, expensive, low quality, and small portion in my opinion, like the title says, I'll stick with the Asian places.

My husband and I stopped here one Sunday and found the lunch we had was great! I ordered the 1/2 sandwich and a cup of soup and my husband ordered the "Steak and arugula sandwich. My half sandwich was a chicken chipotle with avocado and a cup of french onion soup. Both were very satisfying.

My sister, niece and I visited this location yesterday after having facials for breakfast. At first the staff was prompt and service was pleasant. We ordered pastries and a soufflé with a smoothie which was very tasty. But when we went back for additional services I waited minutes and had to go and find someone to assist me because 3/4...

I have been here a few times and wanted to give them a chance heifer reviewing. They are absolutely the slowest place I have been. Long lines and not so good food. It's like they don't have management or don't want to be there

Came in and was treated very poorly by Debbie. Seems she must either be overworked or just rude. Either way, NOT the Panera experience we are used to.

Panara is where I go when traveling and restaurants are unknown. The menu is familiar, the food is very good, and the staff is helpful. As well, it is a great place to catch up with family and friends when at home.

I love to go here when I get some time away from the family and need to get some work done. I can get a bite to eat, something to drink, and get some peace.

Dependale menu. Close to hotel. Good prices. We always look for a Panera when we travel. We know what we like and they get orders together very quickly. Too bad they don't deliver!

Standard Panera food which is really nice for a lunch but have to give a shout out to the service group. We got a sandwich which was not up to their standards, when we mentioned it to the manager who was walking through the restaurant, he immediately replaced it, no fuss / no attitude, apologizing for the fault (the sandwich...

Drive by for chicken noodle soup bowl meal and a chocolate cookie. Best part is the bread bowl after the soup is gone. Reminds me of old german style bread. Very Good!
