Clean, warm, friendly - one of cleanest and nicest Panera Bread we had visited (and we are huge fans of this chain). Close to university but not overcrowded. Nice place for coffee and cookie or lunch.

We ordered lunch at work to be delivered. Delivery guy came faster than we expected. Salads were presented nicely in box, in containers you can eat from. I'm addicted to the Southwest Chile Lime with Ranch Salad with Chicken. Yummy!
