I used to come to this Panera all the time because it's always clean, friendly and professional. I don't know who these workers were but holy cow....completely different experience. SO unprofessional. Talking loudly behind the counter about personal issues. Speaking loudly with a friend while cleaning the dining area about personal issues...took the girl a long time to help customers... More

We wanted a light meal on March 29th while staying at the Residence Inn at the Legends in Kansas City, Kansas. We opted for Panera and were disappointed with the experience. My husband had the SWChicken Tortilla Bowl and it was not terribly good. He did like the baguette. I ordered the Cup of broccoli cheddar soup and it was... More

We didn't have the greatest experience when visiting but it wasn't the worst either. They did not make our full order and the location wasn't the cleanest but in the end it all worked out, may give them 1 more attempt.

This place was BUSY when we visited and I totally see why. The food was great (as always) and the service was fast! We got in and out with our order for 4 people really quickly. We all loved our food. The location is nice because you can walk around in the mall area after you eat! Definitely a nice... More

The mac and cheese was great as usual, and the baguette was perfect. Oddly they don’t have regular mustard packets on the drink/condiment bar like most other locations, so the only option is the spicy mustard. We went early, so it was not busy and very peaceful but started to pick up as we left.

Good food. Awkward building though and not enough seating. Service was fast and polite. Nothing special.

If you are familiar with Panera, then this is just like the others. It is in a shopping center, so be prepared to walk just a little (but not too far.) The service is always just fine, and they keep it clean.

Its a great place to go to sit and relax. It has really good food too. But since Bread is in the name, just know...you will get your carbs for the week.
