Yelper Brittany A., who reviewed Judy's Donuts on April 4, wrote, "The doughnuts are perfect, and I've gone here multiple times around 3 p.m. when the morning doughnuts should be stale, but they never are... If I could destroy 7 in a sitting, I would!"

Popular national chain Panera Bread is a counter-service bakery offering sandwiches, salads, soups, bread, bagels, pastries and more.

Diners can expect the Panera signature menu, including specialties like the pecan braid and the steak and arugula sandwich, as well as free Wi-Fi.

Panera's current Yelp rating of three stars out of three reviews indicates the newcomer is finding its way, but it's still early days.

Yelper Juliette B., who reviewed the bakery on April 4, wrote, "I accidentally ordered at this location instead of the one by my work. It was my mistake, and the Panera near me called and canceled. This location was so sweet and understanding, I absolutely appreciate the wonderful customer service."

But Yelper Justine L. warned, "The wait time is always way too long. I recently went through the drive thru and it took over 10 minutes - about 15 total.... the icing on the cake was that when I got to my office and opened my bag up, they gave me the wrong breakfast sandwich."

Panera is open from 6 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 7 a.m.-9 p.m. on Sunday.

And Nell G. enthused, "Came here for the first time yesterday and I must say I'm extremely happy with my hair! Gena did an amazing job! I decided to go shorter than I normally would and I'm glad I did. Definitely coming to this salon for now on!"
