Stopped in at Panera for a light lunch. Plenty of options to choose from including salads, sandwiches, and soups. Decided on a half of a Chipotle Chicken Avocado Melt sandwich. Even the half sandwich comes with bread, chips, or an apple. I opted for the chips. The delicious sandwich was delivered to my table quickly.

One of the nicer Panera Bread's I've been to. It was clean and service was quick. Food was served as expected for Panera

We pick up some freshly baked bread from this Panera from time to time. Their Sourdough bread is my favorite. It tastes excellent.

I was a bit sceptical about this one, especially it being a fast food restaurant, but I was pleasantly surprised. I really liked the options and the quality of the food. I had the Italian sandwich with chicken noodle soup. It was good especially the soup on the cold day. And the best thing was the portions. I know the... More

I arrived at 1:00 PM, just after the lunch crowd rush, so I was the next one in line. I ordered the "Pick 2" - Roasted Turkey cranberry Flatbread and 1/2 Grain Chicken Salad. Both were very tasty. Prices seem to have increased in recent times, depending on which sandwich, salad or soup you choose. With my reward points I... More

Decent food, portions can be skimpy depending on what you get. Got (2) pick 2 meals for lunch, was $23 and change. If you get the water cup, which is small, no charge for drink. Free WiFi.

I get that this location is right on a busy highway but even if you place an order online its never correct and dont even bother trying to go in and order it takes forever even during off peak hours. Much easier to go to other locations if youre looking to actually sit down and eat. Also, I am a... More

Lots of menu choices for breakfast, lunch or quick dinner.. Soups, salads, sandwiches, coffee, bread, bagels, desserts. Even the newspaper to read. Feature: Order 2 choices frm-soup, salad, sandwiches. Many more dessert choices than Starbucks, and cheaper, bigger seating area.

From getting my order wrong to the oh so bland sandwich and lukewarm soup my lunch was just plain bad. Chicken soup had lumps of slimy chicken fat in it. Yuck.

I have been going to Panera's for years and I like it more and more every time I go there. Their salads, sandwiches, and soups are all to die for. My favorite sandwich is the Sierra Turkey, my favorite salad is the Thai Chicken salad, and my favorite soup is chicken noodle. Also their macaroni and cheese is absolutely delicious!... More
