5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Amanda's is a great place to get sandwiches and soup with attention to detail and on home made bread!

“Very Nice Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013 via mobile

If we hadn't been directed here by tripadvisor, we wouldn't have found this gem. Chicken salad is special and the bread is outstanding.

“Good fresh food & can order ahead!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013 via mobile

I was traveling through & wanted chicken salad, they make their own & it is GOOD! I was encouraged to place my order & did. Very glad, because the sign was up that they were out when I arrived. Obviously a great local place. Very friendly & clean & just a 2 minutes off I - 35. Local is so much better!

“30 Minute Wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

We were warned not to show up past 11:45, and we heard this from the regulars leaving at noon when we arrived. Line to the door, 20+ deep. Ran out of my first choice, and part of my second. Good food though -- great bread, fresh ingredients. Worth the stop if you are patient.

“Wonderful sandwiches in downtown Emporia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2013 via mobile

Situated in downtown Emporia, Amanda's offers a wonderful selection of sandwiches, soup, and desserts. The food did not disappoint. The sandwiches served on fresh breads come with plenty of fixings and delicious ingredients. The "chicken salad" was superb, and my son's club sandwich was also excellent. I ordered a bowl of Tomato Basil with my sandwich. The soup was rich, flavorful soup, fresh and wonderful. Comfortable space with windows makes the meal welcoming and enjoyable. My only advice is arrive early since they run out of specials and breads. In any case, if you are in the area, it is worth a stop.
