A few months back I had written a review about Panera here in Lawrence Ks that wasn't a review any manager would have enjoyed getting. It was about the poor service and attitudes of the employees. The food is always good. Anyway, I was contacted by the manager and offered a visit with her. I planned on doing this but... More

I go to Panera for the bread and pastries. The food offerings do not interest me. I can make them at home. But they have some nice breads. Love the big sourdough rye miche.

We are locals and have placed takeout orders a number of times because our kids liked something on the menu. They NEVER fill a take-out order correctly. I have dietary restrictions and always ask as nicely as possible if they can honor our requests, and they say they will and NEVER do. Lawrence has great restaurants - don't waste your... More

We enjoyed lunch and especially think the "You Pick Two" option is great for us! Thank you! Then what we really enjoy are getting the bagels to take home. They are wonderful!

This is not a restaurant for anyone with food allergies because the menu doesn't identify ingredients in each item. Neither the Chicken Cobb salad or the Smoke Turkey panini listed bacon as an ingredient on the big ordering board menu. Since we don't eat bacon, we ordered these. Surprise, surprise, when we got the sandwich and the salads, they were... More

Staff was very friendly, but this time the half sandwich (I had the You Pick Two option) was very small. I had creamy tomato soup (Yum!), and Cuban Chicken. Usually the 1/2 sandwich is a better-sized portion. Didn't say anything to mgmt - food was still excellent. Location was good, easy to get to, and plenty of parking. Will definitely... More

This PB was given a long overdue reenovation this year and the results are awessome: clean, spacious, friendly, and now with comfortable seating to have meetings or work alone online.

Choose from a wide variety of sandwiches, salads and soups. Or order from a large variety of breads and pastries to take home. We like their chicken salad sandwich as well as their croissants. Order at the counter, no waitress service. Very attractive place to meet someone for a casual lunch. Sometime amounts of sandwich fillings are scimpy.

Our order got misplaced or taken by someone else, so we waited over 20 minutes before getting food. Management was very apologetic, and brought my son a couple of pastries of his choosing by way of apology. Food was terrific, and staff was very polite and kind.
