      I have no complaints about the food, the service, or cleanliness. I've been to many Panera Bread locations over the years. It's average, and exactly what you should expect. I do have 2 complaints on this store...1. the parking during the lunch rush is terrible. I've had to park in the neighboring TGI Fridays lot on numerous occasions....and 2. the bakery/pastry section sells out way too fast, and they don't make enough to keep the selection options available for later crowds. If you are looking for a good pastry after 9am, you are pretty much left with just scraps. You snooze-you lose for pastries. Too bad for those of us with kids and don't have the schedule or opportunities to get there early enough. I don't even consider Panera an option anymore if I want baked goods.

      Fantastic sandwiches with lots of bread choices including italian, tomato-basil, sourdough, french baggette, foccacia, croissant, honey wheat, the list goes on and on. The soups are fantastic too and they have a selection of about 5 different soups everyday. Most of the time they have french onion, brocolli and cheese (my dad's favorite), baked potato, and chicken and noodle...with a few other soups that change everyday.

      Sandwiches come with a side of deli-style chips. Soups come with a slide of a fresh-baked French baggette that are just excellent. They always have a deal called "Pick Two" where you have an option to pick 2 of the following 3 choices: half a sanwich, half a soup, and a salad for $5.99.

      I recommend the chicken salad sandwich on a croissant. They have the best chicken salad I've ever had. I usually then substitute the baggette slice instead of chips.

      I have been to a number of small bagel/coffee shops, this Panera tops the cake! The employees were super nice, helping me navigate their menu for the first time, and the food was delicious, can't ask for much more :) The store was clean, and well decorated/lit.
      I do wish they had a drive-thru, but that may be the norm for Panera...this was the first Panera I had been to.

      I love Panera's sandwiches. The turkey artichoke panini is my favorite! They are a nice quick place to stop for lunch and have reasonable prices (6.50 for a half sandwich, half soup). They also have wonderful french bread that they give you a huge chunk of when you order a soup or salad. Their website will give you the soup of the day.
