Awesome frozen lemonade. Had the grilled fontina cheese on wheat bread. Took 15 minutes to get the food. We were there at 7 pm on a busy Friday night so could've been worse. I suppose if you have never tried a panera it could be worth a try but Nothing to rave about and portions are small .

I am a big fan of Panera bread. I enjoy most of their items and find the service to normally be very good. Today I tried the Thai chicken salad and was so very disappointed. It was truly one of the worst salads I have ever had. I most certainly will never order it again.

Service: • A small select group of personnel are very attentive. A larger number understand nothing about customer service. Management appears to be in the latter group. • Management recently adopted a policy of not brewing decaf coffee after 2:00 p.m.... ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Late in the day is when people WANT decaf! We're told, "if customers want decaf,... More

Typical Panera. Staff seems to change a lot and one time when I was in there I witnessed one staff member being excessively nasty to another one. I should have said something to the manager but I didn't, which I regret.

Great place to stop, typical Panera experience, fast and friendly service. I absolutely love their butternut squash soup, it is to die for!

I would always frequent this panera due to it's convenient location but lately it just hasn't been worth it. The prices are not cheap but it was always more satisfying and yummy before. Not to mention the terrible service-the cashiers always seem to be perplexed and act as if it's there first day. I always have to have them read... More

On a cold day ordered soup and got Luke warm soup instead upon requesting they warm it up I was told that's how hot it gets from a manager- no customer service! Just rudeness!

Went for breakfast for a couple egg sandwiches. As soon as we entered we looked at the menu to see what we wanted. The head cashier (it seemed she was the head at least) started yelling for us to move to the other cashier to order. We were still looking at the menu but he continued to rudely yell at... More

Panera is a chain restaurant...but its good. They have lots of healthy options and are quick once you order. They have lunch specials and lots of seating
