My experience with this particular Panera has improved since my last review two years ago, and I am happy to write a more updated review. Their hot breakfast options have improved, and their lunch-time soups are pretty consistently good. It's become my family's default weekend breakfast option in the past twelve months.

Cashier was miserable ask for 2 things and they didn't have it and she had attitude. Maybe because it was the end of the day and she did like coffee orders maybe you should not take job..

Clearly, Panera is a Fast Food chain and it is designed for quick and easy breakfasts, luncheons or snacks. That having been said, their menu selections go far beyond the usual hamburgers and cheeseburgers. And, their salads are far more sophisticated than iceberg lettuce with slivers of cucumber and tomato. And, they do have a good selection of breads, bagels and baked goods. But, still, it is a fast food chain. As a chain with franchise protection, the products are known for their consistency. No matter where you find one, the food will taste the same and will be reliable. There is no table service--you order and pick up your meal to bring to your table. Nutritional information is available and that is quite helpful for the wide variety of menu items. Not gourmet, but consistent and reliable.

This particular location is ideal for anyone looking to conduct business or just check on their emails while grabbing a bite to eat or have something to drink. It's very convenient to 128, making for an easy drive home or wherever, just make sure not to leave there between 4-6 PM, otherwise, you would be better off to sip your coffee or tea a bit longer. The food is typical Panera, I go mainly for the free wifi and nice airy tables. Ok, I will occasionally have some lunch, too.

Had a chicken noodle soup with Bread and my partner got the Thai Wonton Browth Bowl. They were okay but a little too salty. If you need a quick bite then panera is good as the service is fast but is nothing great.
