I am a huge fan of Panera as a company, but this store just made Panera lose my business. Which is a total shame, as I have been a huge Panera cheerleader for years. I had a reward available for a free daily bagel for the entire month. The site allowed me to redeem an award on one day and... More

We stopped Panera on the way to the airport for lunch. The orders were made and the orders were delivered to our table. We had the chicken salad with broccoli cheddar soup and turkey bravo sandwich with French onion soup.

We have always had a great experience at this Panera Bread- there was one time we felt they didn't put enough Chicken on our sandwiches so we said something... They gave us a $5 gift card and we went back, got the same thing, and it was perfect!!!

Like the other Panera restaurants, they are consistent in their menus and preparation. I have used them for catering and they are always on time. Love their sandwiches and salads, just not a fan of their coffee (that goes for all the Panera restaurants). So happy they are removing artificial colors and flavors from their food.

We always enjoy stops at Panera Bread. We especially like the fact that that have a nice variety of foods which are not the standards you find at other places. The quality and variety of their bread are both outstanding.

Travelling. Needed a coffee and a snack. Arrived at 9 pm, coffee was hot and good. Had a scone and cinnamon roll, both were fresh and hit the spot. Great service. Friendly staff. Nice

This location for this chain is reliably good. Fast service and the food has been right each time. I would definitely recommend this location if you are in the need of a quick meal that is delicious!

This Panera location is awful... The food is prepared sloppy and wrong. Three to go orders, in a row, mine included, were missing an item or given the wrong item. When I brought this to the expediters attention, she said it was because they were busy. No excuse...especially since it is the expediters job to make sure the orders are... More

I recently met a friend here for breakfast. I had the strawberry granola parfait. It was good, but would have been better if the pieces of strawberry had been smaller. I've been to this location numerous times and usually come for lunch. I typically order a salad and soup from their pick 2 menu. I almost always order the broccoli... More
