Love going to Panera Bread for quick lunch with the kids.

Mac and cheese is the kids favorite, we always try the different options of soups and sandwiches. Never disappointed.

Friendly and quick service.

Panera is always good and consistent where ever you are. This is another example of good food, but a little pricy for sandwich and the mac n cheese is the best ever but expensive for the serving size.

Lobby Roomy, seating felt crowded. Had 10+ customers in line and one cashier. Later, no one in line and two cashiers. Prices higher; portions smaller. Oatmeal ($4.49) cup size bowl, warm (not hot). Bagel with plain cream cheese $3.39. Love the dark roast coffee (small $2.09. Seating divided in two areas. Took a small counter seat with wobbly chair (needs repair). Been to several Panera locations but this one felt odd for some reason.

This Panera is very popular, even on Sundays at 8AM, line moving fast. Very tasty chedar/broccoli soup. Chocolate cookies to die for. Crisp salads. Large sandwich platters for office parties. Great variety of breads. Our favorite is the sour dough baguette. The souffles come in different flavors:spinach/artichoke, bacon/spinach, 4 cheeses, cheese/mushrooms a special breakfast treat. Panera's prices are kinda high, but the quality makes them worth it.

I had difficulty last time I visited this location. Again this time there was confusion at the register.

The Iced Tea was empty. They did respond and fill it...thank you!

The portions have gotten much smaller! I've been getting the same BBQ salad for years and this one was TINY. Same bowl, just a thin layer of salad at the bottom.

They've raised the price on adding a bakery item as well. Used to be $1. Now it is $1.29.

They are about to lose me as a customer...less food and higher cost = might need to find another place.
