Wow, unbelievable food!

I recently had lunch here with my wife and was blown away. We got to the restaurant a little after 11:00am, but still had to wait in a line that stretched out the door, which told me we were in for a treat. Unusual seating, as you don't actually get to pick where you sit but are shown once you... read more

Family dining styled as a French Cafe. Sitting at tables with other diners has been a pleasant experience. Great salads, sandwiches and BREAD!!!!!!!!! Sad they are only open for lunch.

The reviews on this place are right, great food, amazing food! The place is busy and you will be standing outside waiting in line to order. This was our first stop in Jacksonville on our mini get away. We arrived at 11:30 and had a very long wait. The restaurant provides ice water and some shade for those who are... More

My wife and I placed our order and took a seat at one of the tables.....it's community seating. Within minutes our dessert arrived. We ordered the neopolitan. We only planned on trying one bite and then waiting for our lunch. However we polished off about 90% of it before our lunch arrived. It was delicious!!!! I had the Reuben on... More

What a surprise!!! This little restaurant is awesome. All the food is made in house. I ordered the chicken salad sandwich, my friend out the shrimp por-boy (spelled wrong) sandwich. It was the best chicken salad I have ever had. For dessert I got cheesecake that was out of this world, and my friend got the chocolate cake. It is... More

I love this place! When you get there & wait in line you think you're never going to get a table, but you're wrong, after you order there is always a seat. The food is great, bread outstanding & you feel like you are not in Jax for just a bit. Go!!

This is the best little sandwich shop in Jax! I just wish they were open for dinner or weekends because they aren't close enough to my work for a normal lunch! Turkey, pesto with goat cheese is my favorite! Their bread is so delicious!!!

The French Pantry offers outstanding food. I've been dining at this restaurant frequently for over 10 years and have never had a meal that was not simply outstanding. There just are not enough words in the dictionary to describe how good the food is, whether one has ordered a salad or sandwich. Everything is fresh. The owners are somehow able... More

Weekend trip to Jacksonville and one of my fave parts of the trip. Absolutely incredible food. I had the goat cheese, portabello, and spinach bruschetta and I would highly recommend it. They give you hot fresh just baked bread to nosh on before your meal. Get dessert to go. Carrot cake was amazing. :) The line moved quickly and you... More
