Stopped in at lunch. Despite being busy I was waited on quickly, and it only took about four minutes for the food. The Turkey Bravo was wonderful.

I have loved Panera Bread for many years, but have to admit that I was mildly dissapointed on my last visit. I ordered a holiday offering - Turkey, Cranberry Flatbread sandwich. It was inedible. The flatbread was hard and burned, the turkey was miniscule and it had a tiny smear of canned cranberry sauce! I hope because it is new... More

If I was to die tomorrow I would want to be buried with an assortment of their bagels they are so delicious and the cream cheeses wow. Only huge part of why I do not go anymore is there are always panhandlers outside don't feel safe having homeless people in the parking lot.

The food and service were both good. It is nice to have an apple as an option rather than chips. Has a nice atmosphere.

My daughter, granddaughter, and I eat here when I make it to Topeka. I've never been disappointed. The food is always good and fresh and the restaurant is always clean.

Panera is a fine dining for a short stop. It's never a fast food. It's considered to be a chill place like a small dining mixed with Starbucks kind of place haha.

Panera Breakfast is my favorite. They are quick and the staff is friendly. It is a good place for a quick breakfast and they have some healthy options.

Noting remarkable about this Panera Bread location, other than its proximity to a major highway & a local mall. Standard menu items, generally friendly wait staff, a slightly smaller dining area than some Panera properties that I've visited.

I like the food but find that tables are not wiped down. Tonight I cleaned one before I could sit down & noticed another patron doing the same. Another woman asked the employee to wipe down the booth and the employee did so but should've continued to clean others. I wished I had ordered my meal to go.
