Food was fresh. Service was quick. Love all the iced tea options Panera now offers. Only issues were that finding a seat was difficult. The place was packed at 1:00 on a Tuesday! Bathrooms could also have been a little cleaner, but based on the volume of traffic, I can understand why they weren't pristine.

My daughter and I stopped here on our way out of town for coffee and breakfast sandwiches. My daughter wanted a big glass of water and one of the servers happened to overhear her - without hesitation, a big glass to fill with a lid for a to go water. Everyone was really friendly and same excellent food.

We used to be Panera fans, but our recent experiences at different ones have been disappointing. My husband and I visited this location on Thursday. The cashier was very slow. She apologized that it was her first day at the register but still it took her about three times longer than it should have. It's not fair to subject your... More

Previously in store when I got this soup, they didn't give me the... More

Ordered online for pick-up. The store was extremely busy. There was a little mix up on the order and I waited a little longer than usual. However, the order was correct and the broccoli cheddar soup, salads and sandwiches we ordered were good as usual.

got waited on fairly quick. Just had a roll, scone and coffee. They were both fine. The layout of store is not the best. Had to move from the line a couple times as people were walking back and forth to the coffee station. Does not flow like it should.

This location is near the hotel we were staying at so we had a quick dinner there last night, then stopped back in for breakfast today. The wait staff is quick and friendly.

Panera is always reliable. You get fresh food every time and the atmosphere is comfortable. The soups are always really good and there are many to choose from. Perfect for an early dinner and the bakery is always delicious.

On a cold and rainy day, a bowl of Broccoli Cheddar soup and a baguette sure hits the spot! Just wish the soup was served hotter.
