I've visited this location each morning this week. It's very comfortable inside and a good spot to get work done. The service could be friendlier and they ran out of multiple types of coffee this morning before refilling. Food was good, though.

Went there last week on Friday for lunch. Always reliable. Had new sammy: tasty tuna salad on peppered focaccia accompanied by apple. Ate it so fast forgot to take pic of it!

This is a step above fast food. The soups and salads are really good. I have never had anything at a Panera that was not good. It offers a nice atmosphere and the prices are reasonable.

I had the frontega chicken panini it was pretty good. My wife got the modern greek salad with quinoa. Both meals were tasty. The best part was the cinnamon crunch scone. This is one of the best sweet items I have ever had.

I pick Panera because I have food allergies and have to be careful. This location was up to their standard. Service was quick and it was very clean. Great job!

We stopped in here for a late dinner and knew we could eat a smaller portion and get great food. We both had the flatbread sandwich- chicken, ham and swiss. We had a bowl of onion soup with it. Both were delicious. Yes, you know...More

Whole menu is delicious. Bagels with cream cheese are my usual with coffee. From healthy choices to decadent, Panera has it covered. No cheap eats, but the care they put into each baked or prepared dish is worth it. Staff is very friendly and work...More

Panera does have good coffee, and you can refill it. The positives stop there. The food is average at best, and there are no options for dietary restrictions. Soups are bland. Ditto for the salads. They will never change anything due to the huge number...More
