Soup, salad, sandwiches or a combo make a great choice for a light, inexpensive lunch. All the food is fresh with an appealing presentation. The side of bread completes the meal. Excellent, fast service.

If you like to try to eat right this would be the place. This is my second time to ever eat at this restaurant chain and both times were great! I had the Chipotle Chicken dish both times as well. The commercial originally got me to try it but the picture next to the menu helped me decide on what... More

My family and I enjoy coming here very much. We are rarely disappointed, and if anything is wrong they are very quick to fix it. The location is very clean and the customer service is extremely friendly. I have eaten inside the establishment on a few occasions and I have a service dog and they were very accepting of that....

My wife and daughter are fond of Panera Bread places, I more recently have gotten to like their smoothies. For three of us, my wife and I and our 17 year old Daughter we... More

Service was great, Large, clean eating area, not crowded. Avocado, chicken, bacon sandwich was yummy as well as the cheese broccoli soup. Flavored iced teas are always welcome after... More

It's a little off the beaten path but it has a drive thru! I have never seen a Panera drive thru so I was very excited. The food was great and the convenience of the drive thru was awesome. I'll make this a regular stop on my way to Louisiana.

Been to many Panera Bread locations across several states and this had to be the worst by far. The building itself is old and the chairs in the booths are broken down. Upon arrival and upon starting my order the high strung manager interrupted the girl who was taking my order and proceeded to give her some grief about something.... More
