Great place to stop in for a quick, tasty meal anytime of the day. Also a great place to get a cup of coffee and visit with friends.

Dear Panera I am usually am a big fan but I was really disappointed and frankly disgusted to see that your chicken and wild rice soup had not one but 4 hairs in it. Then my sandwich had dried American cheese in it. Sorry to say but the standards of your establishment have lowered if you let things like this... More

Love heading here for a simple lunch with flavor. They have so many easy options to chose from. Plenty of seating but best to avoid lunch time. It is always packed around noon. The prices and food is wonderful!

A great place to go for soup/sandwich combos or both. The soup/bread bowls are great and they have a variety.

This Panera location is always clean, staff friendly, well managed for sure. Outdoor seating during mild weather is a plus. The service is consistently good. Of course like all Paneras the menu offers enough healthy choices and indulgent treats to make dining with the whole family easier. I go to Panera frequently and have been to a lot of different...

This Panerai is quick, clean, and conveniently located. Always busy between 11 and 2. Has outdoor seating. You can always have a healthy meal. I usually eat at the location, but today I took it to go. I liked the to go packaging.

I'm glad to see Panera is keeping up with culture by offering a Mediterranean Flatbread. The hummus is almost too sweet, but the tizaki sauce balances it out. A great addition!

Bought the Strawberry, Poppyseed Chicken Salad through the mobile app today for lunch. I am vegan, so I ordered the salad without chicken. When I went to pick up my order, the manager offered to substitute avocado for the chicken. This is the first time a Panera has offered this to me. Thank you Panera!
