We had no issues with our food at this location, but the service was terrible. It appeared as though this was their first day open with no experienced staff on duty. We placed our entire order at the kiosk before realizing that there were no...More

I have frequented this Panera many times in the past. Usually, no complaints. Today was a different story. Filthy bathroom. Dirty tables. Dishes piled high and employees standing around talking to each other. It will be a long time before I go back to this...More

The food here is awesome. A large variety on the menu. The staff are great, friendly and have a positive attitude. The drive up window service is fast, unlike some of their competitors. The best location in Champaign.

Good food and service is as fast as it can be. Morning coffee is good - prefer the light roast. Many veg options are great. Busy sometimes and so have to plan in advance to visit.
