Lots of choices and tasty sandwiches. We had breakfast here and it was good! If you are really hungry and don't want any surprises, eat here! They have a good selection of coffees and teas also. The service is fast; the staff is kind and some will go out of their way to please you.

What makes a visit to this Panera more enjoyable than the average Panera is the seating and the ambiance. With its recent makeover the comfortable new booths offer enjoyable and quiet, private seating areas. The food is typical Panera and the service is better than at most other locations.

I ordered a panini, salad, and 2 frozen drinks. The panini was thrown together and the frozen drinks were not cold. How does a frozen drink not be cold???

You can order all of the familiar Panera favorites here. They were out of fruit cups the morning we visited. There is a large outdoor eating area that would be pleasant on a nice day. The bathrooms and drink service areas were messy and unkempt on our last evening visit. The salad portions were generous and very good. Staff was... More

I will visit this panera anytime i don't feel like cooking dinner. Their food is healthy and very well priced. The pricing is good because even though the plate may not seem like a lot, once you're done you'll see that you won't want to eat anything else.

This is a special one because the service is the quickest I've seen. The food is always good, like every one. This is a good spot for meetings or if you want to be alone. It has always be empty when I go, but I can't say that it will be empty.

This is a very well run Panera!!! The manager many times is in the area where customers wait to offer and subsequently pick up their food. The sandwich that we had seemed to be a bit better than those we have had at other locations. The parking is easy. The restaurant has been updated and is well maintained and clean.... More

We like going to Panera because they have good soups and salads. They are usually solid in the consistency of the food. It seems every time we go they seem to run out of a particular bread or soup. The place is always busy. However, the one problem is there always seems to be at least 5 or 6 people... More
