We were running errands and didn't have much time for dinner. So we stopped into a Panera Bread. We were really impressed with the selection, the good customer service, and the speed that our food was served. It was a much better option than fast food, much healthier, too!

I love this place! Great food, reasonable prices. Absolutely recommend the BBQ chicken salad and my favorite cookie, the lemon drop cookie.

I like going in for a quick bite to eat. By quick I just mean not having to rely on a waiter. It does take a while for them to make your food, but it sure takes good. The sandwiches and paninis are great, bread is fresh everyday and I recommend the mac n cheese as a side!

Great service, excellent food. BBQ chicken flatbread is the best! Chocolate chip cookies are delicious. Great meal all in all.

Especially when you consider that Panera is a bakery first, the food is well prepared and you can get a roll or fruit with the items you order. Well worth the money...and not expensive.

Terrible terrible terrible! Ordered chicken noodle soup for my kids for dinner. They were out of bread, but didn't tell us until our food arrived at the table. Bread is why we came here. Manager clueless. I think they are closing their doors. Don't waste your money or time. A restaurant without food is a bad sign. Not your usual... More

Great atmosphere and the fresh breads and sandwiches and soups are to die for..... Fast, friendly service. The only reason they don't get a 5 star is the prices are high. You do get what you pay for but it is expensive. They have free Wifi as well. Nice touch.

Thank kernvilledaddy
