BE CAREFUL--A THIEF WORKS HERE (or, less likely, eats here). I sat down at my table and made a phone call while waiting for my food. During the call, I took off one of my earrings (women, you understand), and I put it on the table. The buzzer let me know that my food was ready, and in the 30... More

Good and quick service. No broth bowls as my local Panera. French onion soup and fresh bread as you would expect.

Panera is always one our go to morning spots. The spinach/artichoke egg souffle is amazing. The pastries are always out of this world as well. The kids love the macaroni more than any other restaurants in town.

This place needs a refresh and a new manager. Why should we pay mega $ and have to bus our own table? Where is the manager? Why should it take 10 minutes to buy a simple cup of coffee? So many screaming kids. People sitting around like they live there...move on people!
