food and service seem to be consistent from store to store. always good and fresh and a good place to catch up on emails between appointments with its quiet and relaxed atmosphere. had the Asiago,bacon egg and cheese breakfast sandwich. would prefer my egg cooked less to the hard side, but still a good sandwich. also enjoyed the mocha frapps....

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.

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
