I like the staff here, they always welcome you with a smile and you don't have to worry about the freshness of bagels or pastries, as they're fresh.
One thing I notice lately is that the coffee turnaround time can be slow, but at least the coffee is still hot.
I recommend this place for sure.

It has been a while since have visited a Panera - was there for lunch and was very disappointed - service was marginal and value for the dollar has decreased - very small portions and quality was ok - not in a hurry to return to any Panera

I used to love Panera when it first opened in California - this was my first time at this particular store. When we ordered, I asked - "Do you have decaf" "It is being brewed now" was the answer. There was no decaf, despite my asking 2 other staff members, for a full 25 minutes. In other words - we were about to leave when it finally was available. I had two more bites before I was going to get up and get a credit. My salad was "ok"...My two friend's sandwiches lacked the presentation and creativity they always used to have.

Had heard a lot of nice things about Panera and recently went with several friends. There were a lot of people waiting to order and maybe that was part of the problem--the staff couldn't keep up. But frankly, the food was a little disappointing and even the bread for which they are known was not wonderful. Maybe on a different evening we would have had a better experience. Not sure they will get a second chance.

What I like best about this place is they are continually adding new items and trying new things. Their soups are great, sandwiches are healthy and tasty. Salads are of great variety. The BEST mac n' cheese around!
