I placed an order on line to be picked up at this location. I should have looked at the order to make sure I had everything. Missing a tub of cream cheese. Contacted Panera and got no response, so doing my venting here.

Good place to come to, food is awesome, and a nice place to even have just a snack. Lunchtime is busy but they do their very best trying to take care of you. They have quite a array of bagels and other breakfast goodies

Good food, different than other "fast" restaurants, but expensive for what you get. They need to offer some different sides. A very small green apple? Hmm...

Comfy place for friends. Fresh food, fast -- and good to have coffee refills. Cozy in all weather and a nice staff.

Panera Bread always has some really tasty vegan and vegetarian options, and it has a good atmosphere for lunch with friends.

Comfortable restaurant and good coffee. Lousy WIFI. If there late in the day, the kitchen gets pretty rowdy--wish they would consider their customers.

Really great menu. I think they are a little expensive but food is really good. The sandwich soup combo is my favorite. Also love the bagels

Panera has a lot of healthy choices, soup, salad, sandwiches. Broccoli Cheddar soup is nice and thick and lots of broccoli. I enjoy the Chicken Fuji Apple Salad. If you want a whole grain bun, be sure to ask or you will get a white roll.

Today it was 62 degrees in February and we decided to stop in here get a sandwich and some soup. We only had to wait about five minutes for our order and it was fresh and hot.

I enjoy visiting Panera for a quick, easy lunch or dinner. The smoothies are an awesome treat with my main course. I have taken a particular liking to the Mac n cheese with it's milky texture. My only complaints are the prices and that the bread is sometimes a bit tough.
