Great selection of sandwiches freshly made. The tuna was good and portions are just right to avoid the post lunch heaviness. Smoothies are okay.

As expected, we had a great turkey and apple slices sandwich with a side order of excellent French onion soup. Both served quickly and the soup was hot.

It is not my style to review a chain restaurant, but this place impressed me. The staff members were young but attentive and engaging. The food was fresh and fast, and the layout was different from other Panera restaurants. This positive experience on the road made me much more likely to visit a Panera again soon.

Went for a late, let's say dinner. We only had soup, but really good soup. Broccoli and Cheese, Clam Chowder, boy these were good, place is always quiet, and pleasant. Would go here more often but going other places?

I never really thought of Panera as a place to grab a fast lunch on a long road trip. But now I do. We tried it at least three times on our recent long drive to Florida and found it almost as fast and 10 times better than your typical burger stop. This is our new 'go to' place on... More

I stop here for lunch often when traveling 75. It's located right off the exit on the main drag of Lima. The service is always fast and friendly. Plenty of seating to catch up on emails. The food is always up to what you expect with Panera standards. Something on menu for anyone. Breads and pastries.
