This review is not pointed at any 1 Panera but all of them. I am a tea lover and when I go in to enjoy a cup of tea I don't want it to taste like coffee. They refuse to designate a pot for "HOT WATER" only. Half the time you get a tea it taste nothing like tea because... More

As always, this Panera Bread does not disappoint. I love their broccoli cheddar soup and all of their salads.

This is my go-to Panera for my breakfast sandwich when I'm on the run. I order the bacon egg and cheese on a ciabatta with American cheese and a large dark roast coffee.

The last time I was here, was in April 2016. I loved it then and love it now! It is nice they are putting in a drive thru, even with the construction going on the service and food is great! I am not sure the manager's name, but she is super nice! Great service and food as always!!

They might consider cleaning the tiles and air ducts . Coffee is always great but if you can't breath who cares. I would have moved on if the weather permitted

Anytime I've been to Panera I've never really been blown away. The food has always been good, just not spectacular. Probably because I'm not into fancy food too much. I got the pick two: a cup of chicken and wild rice soup and 1/2 of a steak and white cheddar panini. However I love the decor of Panera. It has... More

I ordered the Watermelon Feta Salad, bad choice! The Watermelon was rotten. They "fixed" the salad and... surprise!! The watermelon was rotten again! The staff is very disorganized and orders are delayed because of that. I won't return ever to that store!

We ate at this Panera's several times during our vacation in July 2016. Lunch was good; prepared quickly and correctly. Breakfast (2x) was good and surprisingly not crowded. The parking lot was under construction, because they are adding a drive thru. So parking was a challenge, but manageable. The restaurant was very clean and the staff was very nice.

This recent visit was not what I expected from Panera Bread. There was a time when they cared about customer service and satisfaction, but those days seem to have disappeared. Ordered just a cinnamon role and coffee. It was cold & dry. My partner ordered a quiche, which was also served cold. The counter person didn't seem to care when... More

I have gone here mostly as a place to have lunch during work hours. The staff is friendly and prompt. The food is good even if it is a little pricey for what you are getting. The dining area is a good size with the amount of other corporate people are coming in for a quick lunch. It's what you... More
