  • The bread bowl soup was great
  • Be careful if you sit outside, a bird may poo on you!
  • Remember to clean up after yourself - this is not okay!
  • All the wall outlets taken? You'll find more outlets underneath each set of bench seats (along both walls and middle divider)
  • If you're looking for an outlet here, check baseboards (center mass) on west side of dining room.
  • Jacob (the one that always works the counter) has to be the slowest moving person on the earth and has the personality of a wall. Everyone else here is always very chipper and prompt.
  • Love this place. Their bagel packs are perfect for client meetings and the staff is so quick and professional!
  • Get a MyPanera card. It's free, you randomly get free/discounted stuff, and they don't have to type your name in the register each time.
  • Don't come here if you're in a rush...slowest service ever.
  • Be careful I you sit outside. There are lots of birds to poop on you...
  • I'm glad they discontinued Chinchilla Chili

  • Normally I love Panera but this store's morning staff is grumpy, especially David. Bill is pretty good, though.
  • The asiago bagel bfast sandwich is pretty killer if need something to stick with you thru the day. Oh and tell Andres to le his hair keep growing out ;)
