Okay. Maybe this place shouldn't be known for its foray into a health breakfast menu. If you have the steel cut oatmeal, I believe you would agree. The oatmeal was basically a clump, dry mess. Never in my life had I ever had something like this from ANY restaurant claiming to offer oatmeal. I mean, come on. Even Starbuck's and... More

I love these restaurants. You walk up and order your meal. But it is delivered to your table. Besides all the bread, you can choose among assortment of sandwiches, salads, and soups. One of my favorites is a "pick 2". You can get 2 from any half sandwich, soup, or salad. You also get a side of french bread but... More

Good place for lunch. We often order rapid pick up and it's so convenient to place your order on the app and just pick it up quickly. We enjoy their soups, salads, and panini. If your order is not right, speak to the manager. My only complaint is that the tables are not cleaned right away.

I like Panera a lot. I really do. But at least 1 of every 3 times I go my order is wrong. If I say "extra olives" I will get none. If I say "no feta cheese" I get double feta. The corn chowder soup is amazingly good. Love the iced green tea. Love the French bread. Last time I... More

Panera has great, healthy, well made food and this location is no exception. And now that you can order in advance, the wait can disappear if you plan in advance. A good stop for lunch while running errands

A good place for a fast sandwich or coffee & cake. Nothing special but it is fast and the cakes and breads are good. One will always see people sitting around with their computers for hours using the restaurant as their home port.

The food is okay, if you can somehow figure out the extremely confusing menu. The folks who work here are friendly and helpful. The coffee is not changed out often enough, and we have had lukewarm coffee on MANY visits.

Had a meeting at our office nearby. Placed an order for one of there mixed sandwich and salads options on their catering menu. Came with chips, cookies and utensils. Delivery service was great and the group loved the salads and sandwiches.
