The food is generally lovely at panera, but I'm really puzzled about one thing there.... panera's relationship with tomatoes.

I say this because they seem to leave their sandwich tomatoes out too long or have non-organic or otherwise inferior produce. With tomatoes, this will really show.

I love love love tomato products and that is why I'm troubled by this particular panera. They have these great sandwiches, great breads, but then the tomato slices often are so mushy that the skin comes off when you bite into the sandwich rather than crisply biting off cleanly like its obviously supposed to. Now, they've discontinued their tomato soup when it's one of the few decent vegetarian soups to be had in this city.

Can't you guys manage to get the hook up for tomatoes around here? Everybody else has tomatoes that are crisp and tomato soup... even some of the fast food places!

I'm starting to feel like the options are getting a little picked over when I come in. Get some quality items and stick with focusing on making them the best they can be instead of always trying to mix it up. Otherwise there's nothing on the menu to count on being good and we wont keep coming to you on our lunch hours.

Pros: some tasty food

Cons: inconsistent quality

Panera is definitely one of my first choices for lunch or dinner out. They have a fairly expansive menu of sandwich's, soup's and salad's and obviously the baked goods. Another thing I really like is their menu board has the calorie information on every item they sell; good for those who like to watch what they eat. I recommend any of their sandwich's, and the greek salad is pretty good too, albeit a little light on the dressing. Good portions. The prices are acceptable for what goes into the meals.

It can get busy in there at times, but it is understandable considering there is a Trader Joe's next door and a 24 Hour Fitness across the street. The atmosphere is fantastic, it is a very modern dining room that has the right blend of class and functionality.

The only reason I don't give Panera 5 stars is because of the Trader Joe's next door. The parking lot that they share is really awful. Small and cramped. But it is a great place to go.
