“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Any and everything is fresh and delicious....the cinnamon rolls are to die for - my husband's favorite. I eat here at least once if not twice a week. Amanda's is my sister's favorite place to eat when she is visiting from Florida. The breads are made fresh daily - excellent. She isn't open on Mondays - so plan accordingly.

“Best local gem in town”
Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

This a MUST if you're in the area. get there a little before noon, though, because space is limited and food goes fast. There's no day old bread or baked good here- what she bakes fresh in the morning is what she serves until its gone...and it goes fast! Closed Mondays and at 2 every week day and Saturday.

I grew up in Emporia, and saw many bakery's come and go. The only restaurants with staying power seemed to be Mexican food, but the need for a bakery was always felt. When Amanda's opened, my family cheered with relief! She bakes the bread, cookies, and mammoth-sized cinnamon rolls fresh daily. All are noteworthy and delicious. Trust me, there's nothing else like this in town!

“Fresh and AWESOME food!”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

Was here after the Traylor zoo...just wanted a quick lunch. Wow! Excellent homemade everything! Excellent sandwiches...the bread was amazing by itself. Thick sandwiches...and tasted very fresh and wonderful. A little pricey but you get what you pay for!

Great sandwich place on the way to or from the Tallgrass Prarie. Not far off the highway, excellent customer service and fabulous homemade breads.
