I wanted to order a sandwich with chips, no chips...how about a fruit cup? No fruit cup. Ended up with an apple, just a little red apple, not sliced. My brother wanted chowder, no chowder. Ordered chicken and wild rice soup, no, out of this...More

The Panera Bread Company moved into a new building during the mall's renovation. The new look and restaurant is a hit. Service is good and the food is up to par with all Paneras. The only issue is the poor amount of parking. Go early...More
