Panera Bread is a very nice place to relax. It is cozy, has very friendly service, great breads and smoothies, good coffee for an early morning start, and very nice breakfast choices. They also have a rewards program.There are customers here who are obviously regulars. This last visit, I tried a scrambled egg and cheese breakfast brioche sandwich and it was excellent.
Today I had the pumpkin muffin and the green passion smoothie which is a very tasty non dairy smoothie ( I think made with almond milk). The pumpkin muffin here is one of the best I have ever had.
At mall location at perfect corner where there isn't a lot of traffic. Soup and sandwich combo was cost effective and filling. Use kiosk or in person ordering.
This was very efficient, and the food was very good.
When I got there to pick up the food, it was a very nice person at the register he recruited me and helped me find my bag. The food was ready to go, it was still hot when I get home, and I found it to be quite delicious.
I got the cob, and it turns out I'm not really a fan of the Green Goddess dressing. I think next time, I'll just get a different dressing on it. But, the salad itself was very very good.
I also got French onion soup. It's too was very very good. There was no cheese on it though, which was a surprise. Luckily, I take it at home, so I just got some Swiss out of the fridge and put it on top. I don't know if that's a thing with Panera, but I think French onion soup without the cheese on top is pretty boring.
The soup was packed really well. There was no spilling, and you can see from the photos that they put a little soup carrier in the bottom of the bag to make sure it doesn't turn over. I thought that was a nice touch.
The food was excellent. I like this location because it has a lot of space.
The self-serve aspect can be kind of confusing if you're not used to it. As a result my order got lost in the shuffle because they had ran out of the coaster/monitors that you get upon self-ordering.
It's in a nice location and the Staff that I did interact with was pleasant.
UPDATE. I visited this one in person a couple more times. I think they are doing fine. Employees are kind, food is alright.
Terrible food. We picked up the food and got very disappointed. Very tiny sandwich with joker fillings. Very soggy, looks like someone ate the sandwich and threw up inside the sandwich. Does not taste like Chipotle chicken at all, just taste like a mix of expired ingredients. The warm bowl was nothing like the description, missing a lot of ingredients. Check the photo to see the quality.
So, my granddaughter loves Panera Broccoli and Cheddar soup. So… what is a granddad to do? We went here and came in the door that opens to the parking lot. Evidently a lot of people do that, because a bunch of people did it while we ate.
The soup was superb! Plus, if you haven’t tried their lemonades and teas, you are missing out! Their strawberry Mint Lemonade was impressive.
Come on in here, the management is friendly as well as the staff being courteous and helpful. Plus there are lots of stores around to par-ooze.
This place smells amazing honestly. And I do like the atmosphere. It's bustling and busy and the tables are sperated nicely. But I recommend using the main door to enter the place, cause I walked in the second door and felt totally lost. But other than that everything was good. The food was also really good, it's a tad pricier that other places but definitely not bad for what it is.
Well kept restaurant. We ordered online for pickup, and the order was hot, ready, and made correctly. Completely satisfied with the food, service and preparation of our order.
Strawberry Poppy chicken Salad is the best thing I've ever had here.. best salad in bakery.. grabbed a 1/2 chipotle chicken avocado sandwich since I was feeling extra hungry today.. sandwich news great. Soft flavorful and the chicken was perfect.. will order again for sure .
Very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable employees. I ordered the chicken avocado chipotle breakfast sandwich on asiago bread, chicken avocado chipotle lunch sandwich with a strawberry mango smoothie and a chocolate mocha cold brew blended drink. Lastly for desert a chocolate scone and a cinnamon roll. Everything was really delicious more so the smoothie and lunch sandwich. Not too bad on cost about 30 dollars or less.
