Panera Bread has become my go-to restaurant when traveling on business when I need to grab a quick meal. I had the salad and sandwich combination and both were prepared quickly and accurately. It's not a fancy place, but I find it good value for the money, and I like the casual setting which has a cafe feel to it.

Who doesn't love good, crusty breads? All of the sandwiches are super good as well as the soups. The white cheddar mac & cheese is nummy too. Coffee is excellent and it's hard to choose when you're standing in front of all those baked goodies. I love the cinnamon scones (and all the rest too!)

Just finished a later dinner. Well worth the time and comfortable too. Served the food at tables with a locator device.

Located in a shopping area just off hwy 52N. Easy to get to. As with all Panera I've frequented, the service, food and building cleanliness are 4 star

We don't usually eat in fast food places, but we stopped here for a quick bite. My wife had the Greek salad. It had mostly onions and iceberg lettuce. We both had the autumn squash soup that was on the sweet side. Yellow squash can be sweet, but this soup felt "enhanced." The sliced whole wheat bread served with both... More

Havent been there latey but for soup and sandwich not too bad. Lunch time can be crowded as this place is popular but smallish. Their other store is also smallish..

You place your order and pay for it. You get a device that notifies you when the order is ready. You pick it up. You eat. Standard practice at every Panera. Our salads were fresh, the breads tasty. We indulged in some pastries before we left.

My wife and I stopped off of 52 on the way through town for lunch. I got a ham and Swiss sandwich and French onion soup. It was amazing. My wife got a sandwich and salad and said it was great also. We have been to a panera before but never this one. The service was amazing. Took very little... More

Most readers may be familiar with the Panera Bread chain. For those that are not, you have to choose from a board menu on the wall behind the counter (like most fast food joints). The menu is confusing and hard to understand. Even after ordering you may not know exactly what you are getting. Asking the cashier questions often does... More
