How does this place draw a crowd? The bread is what Europeans make fun of, mostly because it's awful. No chew, bite or joy. The soups are preserved with salt and the salad comes from a bag.

This Panera bread was incredibly busy with no really trying to speed anything along. They do have the self serving kiosks which are just confusing especially when other locations do not use them. There was really no place to sit that was cleaned off. And when we pushed two tables together it seemed as though it was a problem for... More

Always know what you'll get. Can count on consistency. Now deliver your food to the tables which makes it easier when with kids.

Like all Panera stores this one is efficient and the food is fresh and tasty. This is the first one where they brought the food to your table. Nice touch.

My wife talked me into going there because she had been there before with friends and really liked it. Well to say the least I thought it was awful and would have just as soon ate a piece of cardboard as what I got that night. One of the three worst dining experiences of my life. Bread was hard as...

I don't understand how hard it is to correctly fill out an order. Then I check the back the dude behind the counter to busy to bother acts disgusted that I would even check the bag. Well I guess I didn't check it well enough. Thanks a lot. Don't go.

My husband and I have had lunch @ Panera Bread twice in the last few weeks. My husband likes their tomato soup and panini sandwiches. He had the chicken soup today and thought it was rather salty. I had half tuna sandwich today and it hit the spot. I had a salad last time and there could have been more... More
