“Good, but frustrating”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

This is an average place to eat lunch. What I like about Panera is the good soups, sandwiches, and ample bread they give you. The pastries are delicious, and they have a good assortment. If you have a Panera's Card, you often get a pastry at a reduced price. What I don't like about it is that you order your food, and then have to just staff there with a beeper (wonder if they clean them and how many germs are on them) and wait. Everyone is on top of each other, people cutting in front of you to give orders or use the restroom, etc. It's hard to hear them call your name and it's very loud...hard to carry on a conversation with friends.

“Best place to meet for coffee or breakfast!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

This is a great place to grab coffee, a quick breakfast or lunch with business associates. The salads are great! Soups are a little salty for my taste, but love the pastries. The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable--there is even an upstairs!
