My wife and I met a friend there and we ordered. I ordered a power drink and my wife got a hot chocolate. It took over 10 minutes to get our drinks. Our friend had her meal right away. There was no way it should have taken as long at it did. I hope it doesn't happen again. We like... More

It was small portions the price expensive. It was clean and had a Subway restaurant feel to it. The tea was excellent. Not a place I would come to often.

Went online to order via cellphone and everyone easily selected their meal; hubby picked up and brought home and was a wonderful easy dinner after day at beach! Yum! Got sliced cinnamon bread for next day breakfast.

They have good food but their prices are a bit over the top. Small dining room and you order from the counter then the food is brought to your table.

Always enjoy Panera Bread for the fresh food. Usually have a sandwich, but chose the salad this time and it was really good.
