Panera is a restaurant that you can expect the same level of food no matter which one you go to. Food is consistently decent, breads are outstanding. This Panera has a great staff that is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is small which makes it difficult to always get a table.

Panera is my go-to-place for a very tasty, high quality fast food breakfast when I travel with my family. Panera's lattes, pastries, smoothies, and delicious souffles are among my favorites. Online ordering from the hotel and drive thru-pick up makes it very convenient. The souffles sell out regularly and the prices are prohibitive enough to prevent Panera from becoming habit... More

The best thing about Panera is that it is consistent. It is consistently clean, friendly, good food. Nothing special but a good place to eat lunch with friends!

I was visiting the area and ate here many times because it was so good! The choices included healthy delicious items as well as the amazing rhubarb dessert. The soup and bread was a very good choice when I needed something light and quick. I used the online ordering once and it was very easy. My only complaint was sometimes... More

Panera Bread is a good place to have lunch with a friend. The atmosphere is casual, soups sandwiches, and salads are good, and the staff are friendly. Oh I almost forgot their cookies and pastries are great.

My husband and I stopped here on a trip from Chicago to Champaign and we're delighted to find an excellent panera experience. They have the walk up kiosks. Then at the counter where you pick up, there's a quality control assistant. She was helpful and took her job very seriously. I had a tomato soup and spicy Thai chicken salad... More

Always a fresh salad and either soup or a great chicken avocado salad is my favorite. Somewhat pricey but you get good fresh food. The broccoli cheddar soup is always a treat!

This was the first...and last...time we will eat here. I ordered the Chicken, Ham & Swiss Flatbread for $8. There was one piece of ham on it. No turkey. Lots of mustard and arugula. For that price we would expect meat! If it had more meat it would have been good. We also had onion soup and turkey chili. They... More
