Fresh food. Friendly service. Good place to network over coffee. Cleanliness ok, but nothing to brag about.

I just love their salads! They have wonderful dressings for each one. I can't decide which one I like best.

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 since we had been to... 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

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)

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.
