Matt and Food Were Wonderful!

My husband and I LOVE Panera Bread. We rarely get it because we don't really live near one. We have to stop when we get the chance. We were passing through Springfield on our way home from Branson right around lunch time so we stopped. Matt, the cashier, was super helpful! It had been awhile... read more

Panera might not be a new visit for me, but this week I was even more impressed than usual with what I ordered! Can't stop raving about the delicious chicken cobb salad and squash soup! I ordered a "pick two" with salad, soup, and bread. The salad was crisp, with just enough dressing, avocado, and chicken, and the soup was... More

The variety of breads, meats, salads, and sweets here means you can have something different every time you visit. they also have seasonal items. Love the casual atmosphere.

Panera is always advertising their use of fresh ingredients and you can really tell the difference. The Sierra turkey sandwich is so fresh and amazing with the fresh bread. Even the chips are made with potatoes, sea salt, and sunflower oil. This is my favorite place to get lunch. (I also recommend joining the rewards program to save some money)

Excellent place for lunch. My favorite is the Fuji Apple Chicken Salad and soup. Add an orange scone for later.....terrific!

One good thing about Panera is the consistency of its food. They have improved the service here as they now bring your food to you rather than being buzzed and picking it up. Soup and sandwich pick too was great. French onion and Sierra turkey hit the spot.

I've been to this location a number of times, and even though it's often busy, I've always received quick and quality service. However, I had an experience today that I had to share. After making a big purchase earlier today, my bank called to say I had a potential fraudulent charge. I spoke to the bank to clear up the... More

This is a good place to grab a quick lunch that is healthy and tasty. I ordered pesto pasta while my colleague ordered half a turkey sandwich and half a salad. We chose a spot at the outdoor patio and our order was brought to our table. You can never go wrong with Panera Bread.

My cousin held her baby shower at the location on East Sunshine and it was a blast! They had really good service and was very helpful in making suggestions. Their food is really great and I definitely recommend the cheddar and broccoli soup bread bowl- it's my favorite!

My wife and I had dinner there this evening. We both had soup and split an Asian sesame salad. I had the baked potato soup; it was fantastic, as was my wife's tomato basil soup. The salad was fresh and more than enough for us to share. Kudo's!
