Panera seems to be consistently good. Employees are friendly & food is good. I guess it is difficult to keep the restaurant looking clean with so many messy customers in & out. Good place to go for a quick lunch or breakfast!

We choose to meet many friends at panera because the food is good, and reasonably priced. Plus, we always feel welcome to stay as long as we want. The pastrues and the entrees are all delish!

As Panera is a chain, there isn't much difference between them in terms of food. That is true for this one as well. The food is what you would expect from one to the other. Good. The staff provided friendly customer service.

Fresh salads, soups and stanwiches are the fare at this classic casual dining chain. I especially like the calorie count by each selection to help you make healthy choices.

Enjoyed our lunch there today. I had the onion soup with the steak and arugula sandwich. My wife had the tomato soup and grilled cheese. We both had the 99 cent add on for a scone and an oatmeal raisin cookie. Business was booming and the staff did a great job!

Tried the new Garden Chicken Wonton Bowl and was supposed to be Thai, there was no Thai at all and the greens overwhelmed the soup. Not much Asian flavor (or any good flavor) but if you like soupy greens go for it. Price was too much at $ 9.00 Half of a grilled cheese sandwich, $ 3.00! Ridiculous.

The Panera brand is known for consistent quality in food, well trained staffs, and clean restaurants. This location doesn't disappoint. Options here include a nice variety of bakery items, including bagels and other quick-serve breakfast fare. For lunch/dinner there is a varied selection of soups, sandwiches, salads, and pasta. Quality is good, especially considering the faster-food aspect and mass quantities.... More

Good clean eating. The parking lot was packed but there was tons of open seating in the dinning room. A bit of a line but moved fast and great service. Food was ready fast!

Very highly recommend visiting for great variety of bread. They even have free wifi. What I like most about this particular place is that they don't throw away left over bread. They donate it to the less fortunate. Love their commitment to customer service and quality food and the environment.
