The staff does not read ticket orders that should be pretty simple for this type of a restaurant. We ordered a breakfast sandwich that was to have sausage on it and was left off. Ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and the one side was BLACK. They don't care what they serve and how it's served. DO NOT ORDER TO GO.... More

Went inside like I do almost every morning, ordered my Large green tea. Tried a Cherry Danish took to work started eating it. Very good pastry, and then yep a hair. There was a hair in the Danish under the cherries. I'm pretty sure I'm not eating here anymore. I'll still get a green tea but as for food, no... More

My wife stop in for lunch. Serving arrangement is not obvious. Food nothing special. Prices high for what you get. Never went back.

I have noticed over the past couple of months that the muffins seemed to be getting smaller. At the time, it was not a big thing - then last weekend, my sandwich was 1/3 size smaller and my salad was smaller, even though I left off the chicken. Plus, the sandwich was missing the bacon that comes on it. This... More

We love going to Panera's for their cinnamon crusted bagels - just delicious. And the staff is always friendly and helpful.

I have been going to Panera for years and have found the the soup is getting more salty and the portions are smaller. The size is the same but much less ingredients. When I use my Panera card they alway neglect to mention that I have something free unless I ask Hopefully they are not heading the wrong way

One of the nicest Panera's I've visited - usual layout but very clean and tidy - good efficient and friendly service, nothing too much trouble. Soup (tomato) was excellent and the mac and cheese ok, for the money. Excellent location with fast free wi-fi and as much car parking adjacent as you would ever need! Plenty of outside seating (if...

Had not been to a Panera Bread but stopped in at one for Breakfast with my wife... It is difficult for me to understand why any restaurant would want to pattern its breakfast menu after McDonalds and other fast food places. An egg sandwich, too much like an Egg McMuffin, just does not make the cut.. Bagels, but no lox........ More

After a long work week with a sick household I had hoped to pick up my family's "go to" meals how they appear on the menu...not at this place. No baguettes, none of the greens listed on the menu were on our sandwiches, and the salad tasted like it was made last week.

I work nearby and loved ordering and getting at work. Broccoli cheese soup was hit & fresh. Delivery driver nice & friendly. Very convenient the delivery fee a little high.
