Went for lunch with sister to get quick bite. I ordered their beef panini and it came quickly. It was very hot and very fresh- I really enjoyed. Panera is always predictable.

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!

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.
