Since they are only open for lunch during the week, my husband and I make plans to come here! Every day that I am working a half day or off the whole day, we go to The French Pantry!! The food is ridiculously good and we have never had a bad meal. The restaurant is very small so there is... More

We went for the first time we had a great experience. Food is very good. The place is very crowded but they tried to accommodate you. We will go back.

When they say "The best kept secret" is an understatement. The French Pantry is soooo delicious. My favorite is the Turkey club with Provolone and The Shrimp Po-Boy. Their desserts is to die for. My favorite is the Wedding cake with strawberries. Every chance I get to eat here, I do. You will not be disappointed.

This is a great casual restaurant off the beaten path. Everything is very fresh and the bakery is excellent. It is very small and sometimes you may share a table with other diners. It's a good way to meet people.

If you don't mind the wait it is definitely a great place to eat lunch. Get there at 11a.m. when the selections are plentiful. Once it's gone there is no more. Closes at 2 or 3 p.m., not sure. Fresh, homemade, delicious food, deserts, and bread. Friendly, table sharing atmosphere. Dine in and take out available. A unique restaurant worth... More

Absolutely wonderful food. They do lunch only and the lines are out the door, so get there early. It is worth the wait.

An out of the way place known mostly only to locals. We had a little trouble finding it, even though my wife had been there before; but it was well worth the search. Basic cafeteria style service but the menu of specialty sandwiches and specials is extensive and the food is excellent, especially the bread! Highly recommended for a unique... More

Do not let the long lines put you off, this place is worth the wait. The food is fresh and tasteful. The sauce on the shrimp po boy is to die for. The desserts are out of the desserts are too tempting you just have to sample one or even two of them. The peanut butter cookies are the best... More

sandwiches, salads and desert, oh my. The selection is awesome and the quality is consistently excellent. My number one pick for lunch anywhere. Fresh warm bread and dipping oil while you wait is a added bonus.
