Love Panera. Love the bear claws and coffee. The cinnamon rolls are great too. You cannot go wrong with this location. Great stop during Christmas shopping at the Summit.

The only reason this spot did not receive a 5 rating, is the order time was incredibly slow. However, by the time I found a table, got my drink, my food was ready. Very fresh and tasty.
