Not a Healthy Place – I have been eating at Panera Bread as a visitor at the nearby EO Inn for five years. The Panera was much more vibrant at that time. Now it is over run by customers and service is very slow in the morning. It also has undependable opening hours and the only healthy breakfasrt stuff is never ready in the morning for the first hour or so after they open. They seem very disorganized
Fresh-baked goods, fresh-brewed coffee and creative sandwiches served up in relaxed, roomy surroundings. – In Short
Bright colors and comfortable furniture give this chain cafe a laid-back feel, with scattered tables that beckon coffee-sipping readers, chatters and diners. All baked goods--bagels, muffins, two dozen kinds of bread--are made fresh on the premises. Sandwiches include turkey-artichoke panini and Asiago roast beef, plus standards like chicken salad and smoked turkey. Soups change daily, but popular choices like broccoli and cheese, chicken noodle and French onion are always on the menu.
Support a local market instead – Panera can give you a bagel and not cut it, and not toast it and give you lousy service. If this is something you are into, be my guest, go to Panera. But if you want supperior service, look for a local market to support.
Not Impressed – I love Panera, but this location was less than satisfactory. I've never been there during lunch, but during evening hours the employees behind the counter seemed to be clueless local highschoolers.
Placing our order was nightmarish, and then we were made to run back and forth from the food-line to the bakery because they forgot to give us our food, and the workers were rather rude.
None Better – A must try, if they only server bread and pastry they would still be hard to beat. Their Tuscan chicken sandwich and home made soups are worth the trip. A little crowded at lunch but well worth the wait.
