Food is decent, could be rated a three, even if prices have continued to climb while portions shrink. Operationally, Panera has become a one, with confusion and inconvenient waits at an all-time high. Self-order terminals have been installed, presumably to reduce order line wait. But why will those terminals not accept ApplePay when all of the staffed registers do? Even... More

Clean, large, open lay-out. Really nice compared to many cramped Panera locations. Quick service - exactly what was expected. Dishes were stacked up at trash bin but once pointed out, they cleaned it up. Nice fire going on winter evening. Very good quick dinner before movies.

Of course have been in many Panera's and visited this one when staying In best Western Plaza Hotel b=nearby. It is a very clean Panera, the staff and service was very good. Enjoyed a Thai Salad with Chicken which was great. It is a nice clean place with free wifi.

Went in to pick up a couple of bagels to go on a Sunday, late morning. Figured it would be quick, get them sliced, toasted and be on my way. No, my order was added to the general "queue," and I waited in line for almost 15 minutes!! If I hadn't already paid for the purchase, I would have walked... More

More salad choices than ever! Very careful about gluten free options and making sure the salads are safe. The service has gotten faster. You can now order ahead and pick it up when you arrive. Excellent!

Employees were socializing while I was waiting to order (I knew what I wanted as soon as I walked in). After ordering just a salad to go I waited far longer than necessary. No one was friendly or went out of their way to smile, say thank you or good bye. I definitely did not feel welcomed as I do... More

Quicker service than other paneras I have visited. Staff was friendly and food came right out despite being slightly busy. I had the chicken and Cobb salad which seemed fresh and was tasty!

I love Panera. I stop by to get soup atleast once a week. This one is so slow. Sometimes 20 minutes for a soup. Lunchtime is the absolute worst. I tried online, but the order was wrong. I suggest you go, but go at an off hour.

Panera is in walking distance through a traveler's cleared pathway near the hotel parking lot. The food was good as always.
