To get to the fabulous food, you must stand in line for at least 45 minutes but you should take advantage of the time to meet your fellow foodies in line and talk about your favorite menu items. The menu is extensive..salads, sandwiches, quiches and an abundance of incredible desserts. I had the bang-bang shrimp salad which was very good... More

Everything here is fresh, large, and delicious. The sandwiches and salads are outstanding and the desserts are fantastic. Limited hours, small seating areas, waiting lines at times... Must be worth it? - oh yes, IT IS!

We had some co-workers who had previously visited this restaurant and told us we "had" to eat here. I'm so glad they did! We stood in line outside but it didn't take too long and ordered at the counter. There is very limited seating but it all seemed to work out by the time we were ready to sit down.... More

The food at French Pantry is wonderful. That said, the lunch experience can be fun, or, if you are in a hurry, frustrating. If you can't find FP, look for the brick warehouse with an old "Pennzoil" painted on the side; the awninged entrance is at the front, parking mostly on the side. Go early or wait until the lunch...

Let me start by saying this review would be a 5 if it was based solely on food, but there is so much more to the experience of eating out than just the food. The line for this place it's out of control. There's no way to go here for lunch unless you have the day off work. In order... More

I ordered the Chicken Panini and my husband had the Turkey/Pesto/Goat cheese on a baguette. The chicken panini was fabulously full of flavor! The Turkey/Pesto was good. But the strawberry white chocolate cheesecake was a taste of heaven in my mouth! They brought out bread and an oil dipper. The bread was cooked perfectly. My only dislike was the limited... More

I have never had this kind of food at these kind of prices ever! When i took my first bite of the amazing sandwich, time stood still. My mouth was filled with flavors only best described as incredible, but yet that still is not a good enough word. If you are in Jacksonville go to the french pantry. I can't... More

The French Pantry is the only lunch spot of it's caliber in Jacksonville- period. A long line of return customers in front of an obscure door in a warehouse district- before they are even open tells the entire story.

Let me start by saying the food is really good. It's all very fresh and homeade. When you come in it's a bit confusing. No one to tell you if you should sit or what. You are supposed to go to the counter to order (no signs to tell you this). The menu is on the right side of the... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way home through Jacksonville. Found it using "Near Me" feature on Trip Advisor app. Just a mile or two off highway and definitely worth it. We arrived after the lunch rush so there were just a few people in line and tables were available. Food was great. Very tasty and plenty of it... More
