The food is great; however, they sometimes run out because it is so great. In the summer, the place is very hot so get it to go. And know that there is a wait during lunch. The morning cinnamon rolls are awesome! And the bread for sandwiches is excellent; actually all of the food is great!

I had a "Chicken Cordon Boo" Halloween themed sandwich which was divine. Because I arrived at around 2pm they had run out of bacon, but they offered replacements (which I declined). The sandwich was so very tasty. It was a nice quiet place to have a chat with family over good food - refill drink were a bonus too. Before... More

Great food! Try the tomato basil soup, it's really good with a chicken salad sandwich. Highly recommended.

Amanda's is a small Deli, bakery, but the portions are huge and delicious. the bread is made fresh every morning and the soups are from scratch. Amanda also makes wonderful brownies, huge cookies and other sweets to die for. Give Amanda's a try.

Came here's upon other TA recommendations and we weren't disappointed. My husband and I both had half sandwiches on the sunflower wheat which were delicious. They accommodated my request for the heel. Bread was sliced a good inch thick with generous fillings. Their brownies and cookies looked great and the few cinnamon rolls left from the breakfast crowd were the... More

I stopped in for lunch while in Emporia for work. I got the ranch hand sandwich and the brownie. The bread is amazing - tastes like it's homemade fresh. That brownie is WILD but SOOOOO good - it's a brownie with marshmallow, cream cheese, and chocolate frosting. I was skeptical because of the marshmallow, but OMG it's the best thing... More
