Look for the long line in front of the brick building. Open for lunch only. Great sandwiches and salads. Delicious cakes and bakery items Parisian style seating. Great bread and olive oil while you wait for food.

This little restaurant is so popluar that they open for very limited hours of the day and you literally have to line up outside and wait for them to open their doors. Food is really good and besides having to line up to wait for the doors to open, my experience was a good one and would definitely recommend.

Get there early or late. There is always a line waiting but the food is worth the wait. Everything is freshly made and delicious. Seating is family style. If there are open seats, grab them. Take out desserts and fresh baked bread are a reason to go there

French Pantry is just one of those place where you feel at home eating while being treated to some of the most awesome foods. Only issue is parking and the lines at lunch time, however this is not a deal breaker because it is well worth the wait & they manage the crowds really well. Never had a bad meal... More

Service at the counter and on the floor was amazing. The food was fresh and exciting. The bread and oil dip served at the table was on of the best I have ever had. The brochette was excellent. They also have a brochette salad that looked amazing. I ate the shrimp po boy, very good. Shrimp were fresh and abundant.... More

The line can be daunting but the time well spent. It's a lunch totally worth waiting for as The French Pantry consistently meets or exceeds high standards. Never had anything short of excellent.

I usually have the roast beef sandwich, which is always excellent. The service is friendly and efficient. I always take home a loaf of fresh bread, which usually does not last too long at our house!

I have to admit that I actually CRAVE the food served here! It's located in a less than desirable area of town, the ambience is sparse, and you do have to be prepared to wait in a long line -- but it is all SO worth the time and trouble!!! There truly is nothing else like it -- and that's... More

Great lunch spot but unfortunately it has become a victim of their own good food. The good news is that this has become something of a Jacksonville lunch legend and that's the bad news (for patrons) as well as you'll usually be facing long lines to get in. A small but friendly place, if you have the time to wait,... More
