I took a detour off of Interstate 84 to get a smoothie. It was a very nice restaurant, and pretty close to the road.

Lobster rolls are expensive everywhere, it's true. But when I pay $14.99 for a sandwich I expect to have a pretty good sandwich. Instead I got a flavorless pile of lobster meat with plenty of shell pieces, and a puddle of watery dressing under the roll. A complete rip off.

Asked for egg white and white cheddar cheese on a multi grain bagel.... Bagel was cut 1/4 - one half and 3/4 quarter other half. 1/4 half bagel was wet and disgusting....

I love bagels, but do not like having to butter my own. They put it through the toaster and give it to you on a platter with pats of frozen butter - won't get another one there. They told me to put it in the microwave to soften the butter - the microwave is very low and you have to... More

Panera is a good place to grab a bite to eat. Love the soup and sandwich lunch. The brocolli and cheese soup is my favorite

I come here a lot to study, and enjoy the busy atmosphere and the coffee varieties. It gets busy during mealtimes, so plan accordingly. I had their soba a few months ago, and found it to be incredibly salty. They don't have a lot of outlets here, though, so if you're planning on working at Panera for a while, I'd... More

We stopped in before starting our 8 hour long drive back home and we were greeted by not so friendly staff. The guy taking our order seemed annoyed that we were there. Fortunately, the food made up for his lack of personality. I had the creamy chicken and rice soup and a half chicken & bacon panini. It was very... More

We drive frequently from NY to Boston and this was our halfway-point usual rest stop. Sadly, we will not be coming here anymore, since it has declined terribly. Ordered iced coffee, and the machine was empty. I asked for it to be refilled, which took 20 minutes. Ordered a sandwich on panini bread, they were out of panini and gave... More
