Great place for any meal. Soup is always fresh and hot just like sandwiches and salads. The pastry is fresh, all drinks are great. Nice to have a place to meet friends but sometimes it might be full. Just a simple meal with great return!

A different dining experience. Usuall a long line and a long wait at this location.

I often purchase the Fuji salad for lunch and or dinner, and it is good. I would never had added apple chips to my salad, but this salad has now become my favorite.

This Panera gives half full bowls of salad and sometimes soups. The kids meals are a huge joke. When I go, I bring extra food to supplement my daughter's meal, like a fruit cup or extra snack. For $5 you get a small pb&j sandwich, and a small piece of bread or yogurt and no drink. Makes me mad!! The... More

Love Panera.. Great food and outstanding bread. Pretty dangerous to eat the bread as good as it is. I try to level it out with the great salad. Can;'t go wrong with this place

The food at this location is pretty good. What turned me on to Panera was that I went to a homebuyers seminar in Alexandria that was a trolley tour and our lunch was catered by Panera. It was a boxed lunch of the Napa Almond Chicken Salad Sandwich, chips, and a cookie. The sandwich was so good that when my... More

Went there for dinner and the food was great. My 2 year old daughter loves going there and getting their Mac and cheese. We always have had a great experience there. Friendly staff, always polite and professional. Also their bakery and coffee's are excellent.

Love bringing my toddler here for mommy-and-me dates. Usually quick service. Sometimes hard to find a seat. A well-managed location.
