Only open Mon - Fri for lunch, I believe 11am-2pm. Line is long, they don't take reservations (although you can call your order in), service is eehhhh, and expect to sit family style at a table with other people. But for all the little things that would normally turn me off at any other restaurant, the food here is so... More

My coworker suggested that we go to The French Pantry. I'm so glad we went. The restaurant is small and the wait can be long. But it is worth it! The shrimp / goat cheese bruschetta salad is out of this world. I have not been able to try anything else yet, as I love this dish. I wish they... More

First get to this place early 10:30 for the 11:00 opening. It is not open on the weekend. The food was so good fresh and good they give you warm bread with every order. I had the turkey swiss guacamole and bacon--that was one of the best sandwiches I ever had. The desserts were wonderful too.

I have heard good things about The French Pantry and I was not disappointed! I had the French dip sandwich and it was wonderful! I had a very hard time deciding what to order because everything on the menu sounded delicious. I will definitely go back, in fact I can't wait.

Try the Wedding cake. Absolutely the best cake I have ever eaten. Quiche and po-boys are the best ever.

I have been here many number of time and this is a very small place which is oen only during lunch. The food here is just amazing and very very fresh as you can make the difference while eating the salad there. Be prepared to wait for atleast 20 mins before you order your food and the bread here is... More

My girlfriend and I had been wanting to try this place but were kind of turned off by the possibility of having to stand in a long line but both times that we went (once about 1 pm and once on a very rainy day) we got right in with only a few people ahead of us. Anyway, the food... More

I had heard about the French Pantry for a long time and every time we were in the area we drove by and "the lines were too long!" This time there was only about 6 people outside-Wow we thought, let's park and get in line....So we did just that- we waited and the menu was too far to read...while waiting... More

We visited at the suggestion of a family member who was with us, and I must say, I was skeptical. It was Black Friday and even though it was 1:00, the line was well out the door. The outside of the building and area of town didn't make me think the wait would be worth it. Also, after perusing the... More
