  • The grand daddy of Paneras. Sit by a window and people watch!
  • Try the Broccoli Cheddar in a Sour Dough Bread Bowl with an apple. Delicious! Don't forget to get tea or coffee!
  • Come before 11:30am or after 1:30pm for unlimited wifi. Grab a $2.05 mug of bottomless coffee and you're set for the day!
  • I love this panera because the Michigan ave seating has electrical outlets to charge devices while people watching
  • The chicken wild rice chowder soup is amazing.
  • Us employees aren't allowed to accept tips, but you can make a donation to the make a wish foundation instead!! The boxes are located at the cash registers. Thanks guys!
  • If you don't eat pork...try the Mediterranean eggwhite sandwich!! It's a good breakfast even though there's no meat.
  • The new mediterranean breakfast sandwich with a cup of thick frothy iced mocha is a perfect way to start your monday!
  • This place is great. But SERVICE IS INCREDIBLY SLOW.
  • Many tables are on the window on Madison St. Very busy area with many people coming & going from the park. Great people watching.
  • Beware of theft..keep bags close- do not hang on back of chairs! this goes for anywhere on Michigan Ave!!
  • The people are really nice but it's a crazy lunch rush be prepared...
  • The 30 minute free wifi is lame.
  • Love the place
  • I recommend the creamy tomato soup
  • Great management good food quality busy grand opening will do well in the area.
  • If you come here naked the boss comes and shows you his magic cards.
  • Staff so rude!
  • Delicioso!!!
