The food at this Panera Bread is no different than the others. It is what it is. This location delivers the food to your table, an improvement over some that make you wait for it at the counter and bring it to your table yourself. The staff were pleasant.

Great for a snack or lunch. Food is always fresh and tastly and they do have afew healthy options, although a few more vegatable or fish options would be a nice addition.

I have been eating here for years. Recently I was there and there was a new very loud "computer sound" beeping about every 10-16 seconds. I inquired and was told it was for out going orders coming in. It was so disturbing that we had to change seats twice. I inquired but no one knew how to lower it or turn it off. This is just a sign of poor management. Why should all the customers in the place be subject to an annoying blaring sound. We went there for a quiet evening dinner but it was not to be had. The food was fine but the atmosphere was very disturbing and the fact that no one could abate the noise is unforgivable.

Quick bite after mall shopping. The smoothies were excellent as well as desserts. Place was busy, clerks friendly.

This Panera is in a central location between the big Mall with Saks, Macys & Dillards plus within walking distance to Target & all those stores at the shopping center. It is a terrific spot to stop for a snack or just a cold or hot drink! Their breads and baked goods are always selling so you never get anything stale. I especially love their soups and how they are always changing.

Whatever you need, there are many choices here plus seating is plentiful and people are coming and going! You can dine inside or outside too and their staff are polite and quick to get your order moving!
