Met with a business colleague for lunch, got there a few minutes before a huge crowd appeared. Go before 11 am if you don't want to wait in a long line. Ordered one of the 2-for specials - you can mix salads, soups and sandwiches,...More

This particular Panera Bread is spacious, giving customers the luxury of their own space for conversations. A microwave is also available for customer use by the coffee urns. The employees are friendly and efficient. We tried the souffles and really enjoyed them.

I haven't been to Panera in a while so I'm not sure how new these dishes were, but they were new to me! Soba noodle bowls were delicious! It really satisfied with the grain baguette! Clean bathrooms and fast service!

Panera is my husband's number one favorite coffee/pastry type stop. Sandwiches, soups, salads and baked goods are all top quality. Lately though, we have noticed the coffee seems to be neglected. My husband drinks d-caf, this a.m. we stopped about 11:25 a.m. and the "time...More

I like the fresh food at Panera's but if you really want a great treat, try their orange scones - they are the best. I just tasted their parmesan cheese bagels and they are better than Einstein's as well as Zabar's in New York City...More
