The food here is always first class. The atmosphere is noisy and cramped. The long wait in the hot sun is awful! Obviously those of us waiting recognize how great the food is and worth waiting for. But, couldn't they please expand?

I have been to the French Pantry on several occasions. The food is always good and the pastries are delicious. There are only two things that keep me from going more often. One is the wait, which can be long. The other is that you usually have to sit with other folks. Not a problem usually, but if trying to... More

This place seems to be a local favorite and for good reason. The food is flavorful, fresh and who can resist the delectable desserts. If you are looking for a quiet and mellow location this isn't the place for you. This place has a busy energetic and crowded atmosphere and with the large tables there isn't a doubt that you... More

Since living in the Southside area, I have eaten here on a number of occasions. Even ordered whole cakes before. The food is fabulous and worth the wait. My favorite is the shrimp bruschetta, however, this dish only comes with 1/2 of the shrimp on each piece of toast (5), so you only get 2-1/2 shrimps, on the whole order,... More

Prepare yourself for a treat! Simple food made extraordinary by a talented chef who understands how best to take advantage of fresh ingredients and sophisticated herbs and spices. Yes, the lines are long, but that's just part of the fun. This may be the best lunch value in America!

I will be fair .. Not really much on sandwiches. This place is always packed and you must arrive when they open,..... good luck on finding a seat and get ready for noise.. I've been there a couple Of times. Everyone I've been with praises the food. NOW the desserts look awesome . So I must say just try it,... More

The line up for lunch tells the story. Food is very memorable. The service is quick. The tables are tight but your new acquaintances dining with you make it another plus. You have the opportunity to see and chose a dessert as you place lunch order. Take home fresh baked breads. It's all good!!! Joe J

I have been to the French Pantry with family and friends..I highly recommend this for lunch. Wish they were open on the weekends and I would go more often! Absolutely one of the best places and the bread is awesome! You are seated with other people at community tables and there is always a line out the door, but it... More

If we hadn't read the reviews in advance, we may have turned back at the door of the French Pantry. However, we were glad that we took time to go through the queue and through the experience. It's an order-at-the-counter café, with food brought to table, and the place was packed for lunch when we got there, with a queue... More

This was my second visit to the French Pantry and it was even better the second time around. I live in Atlanta and when i am anywhere near Jacksonville I have to visit. This is only my second meal there, however I have stopped in to buy several of their breads to take home to Atlanta with me, but I... More
