    It's the same as every other Panera. Soup is good, if you like the types that day. Bread too sweet. Prices too high for what they serve.

    The soups and bread are always good. The frozen lemonade is awesome. It's also a good place to chill and work on a laptop.

    Don't come here late if you want a bread bowl! They run out 😡

    Portions are much smaller than last year and the prices are much higher! Great customer service.

    Strawberry poppyseed & chicken salad is back, along with the summer corn chowder! New meal options with shrimp are on the menu now too!

    Bagels are great but to be served stinks and so do their paninis. Not worth the freaking money. Never ever get the tomato, fresh mozzarella, and basil panini. There are no words for it.

    Signed up for MyPanera and got a free pastry! But one of the employees gave us an attitude. Maybe it's too early for her.

    The cobblestone muffin is good but suuuuper sweet and the orange juice is full of pulp.

    Their fuji apple chicken salad is killer, especially when you order it with the tomato soup. It's the perfect weekend lunch! :)
