Panera Bread is a café style restaurant and has a casual environment with plenty of seating. After we ordered our food at the counter we were given a number and the food was promptly brought out to our table. The entire staff, including management, was extremely friendly and professional. The restaurant was very spacious making it easy for those in wheelchairs to move about.There is plenty of parking including handicapped accessible parking spaces.
All entrees come with your choice of French or whole grain baguette and a bag of potato chips or an apple. There is also an option called “You Pick Two” that lets you pick two of these three items: a cup of soup, half a café sandwich, or half a café salad. This option makes it easy to grab a quick lunch. Each of us chose something different from the menu. We ate mac ‘n cheese, grilled cheese, soup and salad. We also tried fresh bread and cookies from the bakery. They were amazing! If you don’t have time to sit and have lunch you can always take your order to go and the bakery is definitely worth stopping at to take home some baked goods.
Panera Bread is gourmet style food that is well worth the price! Circles Magazine gives Panera Bread a 4 Circles rating. We loved the fresh baked goods and the friendly staff.
