I love Panera Bread! We visited this restaurant a few times while visiting the USA. This is one of my favorite places. Great food, great service, amazing time. If you chose to eat soup, make sure you order in a bread bowl. The taste is AMAZING!!! This time I ate tomato soup, but my favorite is broccoli soup, so creamy,... More

Love heading here for a simple lunch with flavor. They have so many easy options to chose from. Plenty of seating but best to avoid lunch time. It is always packed around noon. The prices and food is wonderful!

This Panera location is always clean, staff friendly, well managed for sure. Outdoor seating during mild weather is a plus. The service is consistently good. Of course like all Paneras the menu offers enough healthy choices and indulgent treats to make dining with the whole family easier. I go to Panera frequently and have been to a lot of different...

This Panerai is quick, clean, and conveniently located. Always busy between 11 and 2. Has outdoor seating. You can always have a healthy meal. I usually eat at the location, but today I took it to go. I liked the to go packaging.
