Not familiar with Springfield, we were pleased to find Panera Bread only a few blocks from the hotel. This made for fast, good food after long days at the convention without the hassle of waiting to be seated and served. The only disappointment is the lack of bakery items later in the day. After dinner, we would have liked to... More

The food is consistent, today I had a so~so cinnamon roll and was reminded how much tastier a cinnamon roll should be because I recently had one at Tea bar & bites! Panera is a good place for lunch but there are much better options if you're craving tasty bakery items ~ Tea bar & bites & a couple doors... More

Walking through the college district, I was happily surprised to find Panera Bread. The sandwich and dessert I received was very delicious.

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

Panera Bread is the food of choice for my lunch-and-learn events. They provided and delivered the food and drinks for 4 luncheons while I was in Springfield. The food is always fresh, well prepared, well excepted and most importantly always on time. Thank you, for supporting my presentations by simply doing things as they should be done.

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
