Went in here just because it was near the sports shop we had hired bikes from and were pleasantly surprised. Staff really friendly and helpful explaining their food. We had not had flatbreads before and these were really good with very tasty fillings. But not cheap.

Never been found of Paner and this one was no different. They did have a nice think pad kiosk for odering. Just wish the food section was more to my liking :(

Top notch location near Tasman Drive. Went here while staying at the Courtyard across the street. The staff here are the best. They go out of their way to make you feel important.

Most people know what they are getting with Panera. Good food, reasonable prices, and if you use the app you just walk in pick up your food and you are out of there in under a minute. I have probably ordered nearly every thing off their menu at one point or another and it is consistently good. Smoothies are pricey,... More

Nice location and the prices we're on par but the baked goods we're not what I expected. Blueberry muffin was poor and tasted like fake Blueberry flavoring. No real berry's at all.

I am embarrassed to say we live nearby and yet only just visited for the first time (and I know Panera!). It appears to be very small, from the outside, and I thought it was a "Panera Jr.," but I was very wrong, it is full service, everything is available, and the food is terrific, as always with Panera!

For quick food, this is the best place I like to go. The soup are awesome. Pasta, soups, sandwich, breads are good. Did not like much about the softdrinks. Still my ever loving place.

Panera offers a decent selection when you're hungry. They offer a pleasant setting to grab a quick bite to eat, and when needed they bag your order to go. For a business traveler they offer a consistent resource for meals.

Great to stop in before work or to have a quiet spot for conversation. Service is attentive and friendly, every food item I've ordered was hot and fresh. They could use a few more power plugs but now I'm nitpicking. Definitely recommend.
