We are great fans of Panera but this is the worst we've visited. Our server was incompetent- went to toast one bagel & then came back for our next item order. Wait fir the complete order & toast 2 at once! We had to repeat...More

Hit the spot with a good meal for 3 on a hot day. Good food, wide selection and 2 kinds of iced tea. What is not to love? I didn't give it a 5 because the location seems a bit run down and worn.

Love this place. Fresh baked bread, great sandwiches or soup/salad, a decadent indulgence for dessert: What's not to like. Tony environment, with lots of seating variation--at a bar, booth, outside, whatever you prefer. Sometimes a guy even comes around with a plate of free cookies....More

We enjoy their soups, and salads. I will occasionally meet clients for coffee and they have a nice selection of teas and pasties.

Love the Fugi Apple Chicken Salad, and Harvest Squash Soup. The whole grain roll is tasty as well. Always fresh coffee available. Sometimes crowded and hard to find a clean table to sit at.

I gave this a two because the food was ok. We wanted to sit in a booth, but all 5 empty booths had dirty dishes sitting on them. We wiped off a small table. After sitting down we noticed the scummy floor. I will just...More
