“Pretty good food but kind of over priced”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

Panera is a chain store and most like this are located in a mall. The location is convenient and the lines can be hit or miss.

The soup is always pretty good though sometimes a little too salty. Last time I ordered the sun-dried tomato pesto Ciabatta sandwich and I must say it was pretty good though it was not worth the roughly $10 price tag for lunch. I would say balancing out the price vs the taste this place is average at best.

“Yum! Yum!”
Reviewed 26 January 2013

I went there two times recently. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. The last time I had soup with a side of bread that came with it. The french onion soup was delicious and very filling. I just found out that you can get a card that they swipe each time you order something and sometimes you get a "freebie" - a dessert or drink. Try the restaurant. You won't be sorry and don't forget to ask for the card. You will be on your way to some good, filling, and inexpensive meals. The card can be used at any Panera.

“fast internet, good service”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

I liked the food (as I do in all Panera's). The internet has been upgraded and is much faster.
