The Breakfast Souffles are outrageously good. I, for one, am hooked on the Spinach/Artichoke version. Why waste your time with Eggzy Muffin and average coffee when for a few pennies more you can get the GOOD stuff here?

We like Panera Bread and have eaten at them in at least a half a dozen states. The food is consistently good especailly their panini sandwiches and creamy soups.

Clean and friendly this Iowa City neighborhood Panera is a nice place to enjoy breakfast out. It can be busy at times but that's good for them.
