3 pm on a Sat afternoon ... not a clean table in the entire restaurant. Seriously- not 1. We ordered @ self kiosk because the 1 staff (gentleman) taking orders was dealing w/a line of customers. Our food was satisfactory, but the restaurant in general: tables - floor - etc needed attention.

Typical fast food atmosphere, but clean and comfortable. Nice options for a somewhat less heart-clogging breakfast, great breads and pastries. Food is pickup - with pager, very fast. I was told that the management had changed and, given the other reviews I saw, it must have occurred since some of the past experiences. I have eaten at a number of... More

I love stopping in and having a bowl of soup and visiting with friends, always a up beat place open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and all the time in between. The staff has always been very nice and the place is very clean. Good for a small group or even for a larger group

3/12/16: we stopped for a Saturday midday lunch. There was not a clean table in the whole restaurant & no one staffing the dining room. Watched several other patrons wipe off their own tables/booths with napkins ... ick. It's a bummer - we really like Panera food - we avoid our 'local' Panera site for this same reason: maybe it's...

I stopped here today (Sunday) as I was shopping in the area. I frequent the Panera in Woodbury, and also Eau Claire. Those are both really good! This one was not. I shivered through my whole meal, as the place was freezing cold, not cozy like other locations. My BLT roast turkey with avocado was gaggy. The bread was really... More

My first visit I hated Panera. Another stand in line and clean up after yourself joint. I've changed my mind and my attitude with fresh food and soup that is better than most fine restaurants. The pick two sandwich and soup is excellent and service is fast. My quick go to for good food fast

Great sandwiches, love the soup options and the options they provide for creating a meal. Of course the bakery items are incredible. Great bagels as well! You can't lose when dining here.

The menu seemed a little overwhelming, being there for the first time I believe I could have be given a little more attention from the staff. Nonetheless, the food was still pretty good.
