Don't come here very much, I usually go to the Keizer one but I just wanted to say that 3 of the 5 times I've been have been poor experiences. Food is great but I feel like they are always out of stuff!! Out of the soup I wanted, out of the cream cheese for my bagel, and today they... More

We always stop and eat when we are in the area. We love the options of the food and we have never been disappointed in the food or the service. Will always return to have lunch or early dinner. Our 12 year old daughter just loves this place.

I have heard so much about Panera bread so I had been looking forward to trying it out. It was ok. The salad greens weren't as fresh as I thought they would be.

Overpriced tiny portions of mediocre ingredients. Clean, friendly, but for all the hype i didn't like the cold tough bread and small mac for $10.

I just don't get why this place is so popular. The soaps are always cold and the sandwiches are so so.
