They're springing up everywhere and despite the lack of a deep fryer in the kitchen, the food's actually not all that healthy (see their website for nutrition facts). To be fair, the food tastes good, though for some reason the more you have it the less appealing it becomes. The Marketplace location is super-disorganized. No matter how far in advance you call with your order, plan on waiting 10 minutes when you get there for them to finally get around to it. —WegmansFiend

2007-10-09 16:40:21   I loved eating at Panera when I was a student in Pittsburgh, and then when I was working in Henrietta. I liked to get some extra crusty bread and one of their soups for lunch, it was always tasty and filling. I'm a pretty picky eater, but there are tons of things I like from the menu! Their desserts look yummy, but I've never tried them (or the Crispani!). Sadly, there is not one near me where I work/live. —SaraChristine

2007-10-24 08:30:53   I'm just going to mention I think the ROC Panera locations have gone *slightly* downhill. The food seemed to be better, the wifi wasn't anywhere near as spotty as it is now, and the service seemed a bit friendlier. Not horrible, by any means (and I still wind up going about once a week or more) but I don't have quite the same warm fuzzy glow I did when I first started going. —RufoSanchez
