I had a monthly meeting with one of my fellow Board members. My coffee was delicious and made to order and I had a large selection and variety of pastries. It was easy to find a corner to have a meeting and there was wi-fi.

This Panera Bread is a good option if you are staying within the area. I've found Panera bread to be a good choice to meet the needs of any food preference. I personally would suggest the tomato soup and the grilled cheese. The prices are reasonable and the service is excellent.

Panera's are pretty standard and that means you know what you get. Good food, good coffee or iced tea and fast service. This was a stop on a road trip. Wanted cold Iced Tea and a snack. All was good, in and out quickly

Visited this location with my family and they did not have straws, lids, frozen drink was half melted and the chicken sandwich was low on the chicken. Bathroom was dirty and needed attention and my wife slipped on ice away from the drink area. Not what I am used to at a Panera!

Nice environment and the Soup and Salad Combo was outstanding! Fast friendly service! Coffee is good too. Great bakery items are also available.

Panera offers a huge variety and recently we visited for salads. The Thai chicken salad was delightful. The right amount of taste and spice. The wifi and comfortable seating allowed us to take care care of some business while relaxing. Enjoyed the fact the staff at this particular restaurant had someone constantly cleaning the dining room to maintain a feeling... More

While on a business trip, a comrade an I were looking for dinner. She was from Guam and had never been to a Panera. I explained the 'You pick two' meal and we ordered. The food was fresh and delicious. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxing. It was an enjoyable evening.

Got here on Wed night after travelling from NJ. Arrived at hotel which was next to Panera. Got there around 9pm, they close at 10, and was not rushed at all. Staff was very sweet and helpful. Our food was perfect as we are Panera weekly patrons back in NJ.

Stopped in for a quick dinner. Dining room was pretty dirty. Crumbs on the tables and trash on the floor around most tables. No one seemed to tend to the dining area. I watched a few guest wipe down their own table with a napkin. I wanted to leave but endured because it was convenient. Luckily my soup was very... More

Had breakfast two times and dinner one time in a three day period. Food was consistently good, but the staff seemed more interested in talking amongst themselves than ensuring all coffee and cream dispensers were full and attended to. When asked if a half and half container could be refilled, the employee seemed put off. Food is good, but don't... More
