I've written up a few Panera Bread locations nearby and have been greatly disappointed in the physical maintenance and lack of inventory after 3:00pm. This place is much different. Even in the evening, pastries are completely full. Nice new unstained carpet, no leaky stained dropped...More

Food is fresh and there are healthy items to choose. They should be more alert to the coffee supply; seems they are always with empty containers.

This is our favourite branch, purely because it is the first one we discovered. The interior is very pleasant, and we love the coffee blends. The outside seating area is small but good. One small gripe which includes the whole chain. Little in the way...More

We are bakers of bread. We are fresh from the oven. We are a symbol of warmth and welcome. We are a simple pleasure, honest and genuine. We are a life story told over dinner. We are a long lunch with an old friend. We are your weekday morning ritual. We are the kindest gesture of neighbors. We are home. We are family. We are friends.
