We really enjoy Panera Bread restaurants and this is no exception. We came several times this trip, especially to get the autumn squash soup. It was an easy place to get a nutritious quick meal! Of course, we'll be back on our next visit.

Lately I have been disappointed with Panera but this visit was ok. Simple bagel but it was great! No butter today and I asked for it...typically they have it out but not today. Iced tea was good. I wish this location would keep sweet & low near the iced tea. Service was good and quick!

Only wanted a cup of coffee but the line was super long... I saw this new kiosk to skip the line, order, and pay by a card. It worked perfectly. Was in and out in 5 minutes!

This is my favorite place for soup! I love to come in on cold winter days and try chicken noodle, squash, tomato basil, etc. They are all wonderful, hot, and the staff is great. The bread options are great. We often pick up a few loaves to bring home and enjoy for a few day...the kids eat it up too... More

I have to start by saying I really like Panera but this location leaves something to be desired. Went in and ordered my regular soup and salad. I don't know if they forgot about the order or what but when I finally got my order the soup was totally cold. So I tracked down one of the guys working and... More

Their french onion soup was great. Loved it with the bread bowl. However, they just recently changed their receipe to sweet onions and my entire family hates it. So there goes soup night for us. Their salads are still great, without chicken. To me their chicken tastes like convalescent food and I do not eat it.

What a nice place to enjoy a meal with friends. Clean and open enterance. Full Bakery. Full Menu of baked items and fresh food made in front of you. Healthy portions. Not skimpy on anything. Prices were affordable. Plus they have a customer card, where you may earn free pastries and drinks. Free of charge.

Thank ScenicSue
