Let me start off by saying that I love Panera and their soups. However, this location is extremely disappointing. My order has been incorrect here more times than it has been right. I don't know why I keep going back (well yes I do - I crave the broccoli & cheese soup! haha). I was thrilled when Panera started doing... More

Lunch with a colleague. I'm a frequent visitor to Panera Bread locations. This one was not what I usually experience. The attitude of the staff was almost indifferent. The worst aspect however, was the restroom. The malodorous (the open wall fragrance dispenser was beeping) had a filthy urinal and no towels in the dispenser. After informing a staff member about...

Gotta love those bagels...and the VARIETY! It's so hard to make a decision! And then there's the yummy bakery goods! For lunch or dinner, their soups, salads and sandwiches are awesome. Love this place!!

I ordered a lentil quinoa bowl with egg and didn't discover until I got home that they'd given me one with chicken instead- I don't eat chicken, so the whole thing was a waste, and by the time I discovered the mistake the restaurant was closed. Two thumbs down to this panera!!

Today I ordered a half kale power salad with chicken. The flavor was good but it has mostly head lettuce with a little kale. It would have been better with mostly kale with a little head lettuce! If they going to offer and charge for a healthy choice it should not have "filler."

I love the food at Panera I just wish it was more reasonably priced. We recently ate lunch there and all 3 of us picked from the "pick 2" menu and all drank water. The bill was nearly 30.00 and it is not a lot of food. I will say the quality and flavor are always good, just too pricey.... More

I ran to get some get take out (unfortunately the website was down) and faced a long line. I anticipated a wait but was surprised at the sped and efficiency of staff. They moved people thru quickly and the food was well prepared and tasty. The strawberry poppyseed chicken salad was great. The only down side was I was too... More

I had no idea that Panera had smoothies, but they do and it was delicious. They offer several and it is truly hard to decide which one because they all are amazing. If you want a smoothie treat, go to Panera.

They seemed to be in a daze when we arrived, just after the breakfast rush it seems, it was hard to get the staff to focused but then we got good service and great food. Came highly recommended from some locals

I understand it's a busy time of year. But when you call in for a bowl of soup and a baguette and you're told it will be no problem to have it ready in an hour you kind of expect to walk in and get what you ordered. Not Only was my order not ready but a similar order was... More
