Panera has awesome sandwiches and their French onion soup is outstanding, especially when served in one of their bread bowls. The food always tastes fresh, and they have several health-conscious choices that do not sacrifice taste.
Most of the employees who work the cash registers are very friendly and helpful, but some speak very poor English, which makes it difficult to communicate your order, especially if you want something specific, like "no sauce."
The establishment is always clean and the restaurant is divided into several little nooks, which allows you to sit and eat your food without having to hear all of the noise from the kitchen. The atmosphere is very European-style, and great for casual conversations over lunch.
