Used app to order so we could grab and go! Food was prepared exactly as we asked and was ready by the time they said it would be. Great for a good meal on the go!

The staff is always genuine and ready to serve. Great menu options. Excellent salads. My wife and I have eaten there on several occasions and different times of the day and evening.

January 10 all five coffee urns were empty at 7.20 am. Asked why, a server said "she didn't come in". No back up?

With its accent on coffee, it's bewildering that this particular Panera can have five empty or nearly-empty coffee urns at the same time. Not an isolated event, by the way. Last occasion: yesterday September 10. The nicest of employees is standing right next to the coffee urns to help customers work the new computer ordering system which is just a... More

The sandwiches are made fresh and the broccoli cheese soup is amazing! I really don't eat much soups but I love Panera's soup. The Greek salad is great as well.

At breakfast, when I come, I try to... More

I had 1/2 turkey with chips and a chocolate chip cookie. It was all just okay. It is overpriced for what it is. The sandwiches aren't big and they don't come stacked. They are very basic.
