Good place for groups of friends, kids (good kid's menu), couples wanting a quick bite to eat or anyone wanting to stop for something far better than fast food. And, it doesn't take long for your food to arrive!

Almost every Thursday, a friend and I meet at this Panera at 9 AM. Almost every time they are out of hazelnut coffee (and sometimes ALL coffee). I have tried emails to corporate, gentle comments to the manager on duty, laughing, praying, and eventually the coffee appears. I just don't understand why they can't anticipate that it is a busy...

We recently took our daughter and her 2 children to Panera prior to returning home to WI after babysitting for the girls. My 7 yr. old granddaughter says Panera;s mac & cheese "is the best!" and from the way she gobbled it down,I'd say her 18 mo. old sister agreed.

We really enjoy the departure from the normal burgers and fries that Panera offers. Many interesting sandwich combination, a nice clean restaurant ... and the pastries are absolutely heavenly!

The food is really good but this location needs more help. The line was almost out the door and it took awhile to get the food. I'll go again but hopefully they have more people to help.

This suited all four of us well. Soup and salad I had were excellent and the picky girls had grilled cheese and mac and cheese. Good coffee too. Clean, nice staff.
