So delicious!

Every meal I've had here has been great so far. I enjoy coming here, and eating the meals and the desserts. If I had to make any complaints, is that I wish the restaurant had longer hours - that's how good it is here!

I love food! This place understands food. It's not froo-froo. It feels like a whole in the wall. The restaurant is so small you have to go outside to change your mind. Go anyway. The staff is great. The food is fresh. It's one of the best restaurants in Jax. It's not pretentious-it's just frickin good!! Get the shrimp po'... More

For being a small and very busy restaurant, they've got a great system going. Despite lines that extend into the parking lot, they get you seated and fed in no time. Great variety of food, delicious baked goods, and very large portions make this a local Jax Favorite!

The food is delightful. Open only limited part of the day. Expect to be seated at tables with other diners. The food is out of this world. The best hamburger I have ever eaten. The short rib sandwich is to die for. The desserts are sinfully good.

Purchased a birthday cake for my grandmother's 96th birthday from The French Pantry and it was magnificent. The one we selected was all white cake and icing covered in white chocolate curls. The inside also had a layer of fresh strawberries. The flavor was super indulgent and we all raved about the fresh rose decoration on top. A lovely splurge... More

The consistency in the quality of the food and the creative 'specials' never cease to amaze me. This visit my friend and I shared the short rib grilled cheese and the Irish grilled cheese which was largely the same sandwich, but made with duck confit, Both were amazing, They also contained mushrooms or a mushroom spread of some sore which...

The food here is just amazing. Great selection of sandwiches, salads and more. They are also an amazing bakery as well. Some of the best cake and bread I have ever had. They will give you a random assortment of fresh bread to dip in oil when you are seated at your table. YUM!!!!!!!!!

Regarding the food - many of their items are just so amazing that I often crave them randomly. Their Bruschettas are fantastic, and so are their sandwiches and desserts. The bruschetta is not like a typical one that you are familiar with it is like a large salad with delicious fresh baked bread and usually a meat (such as shrimp).... More
