We brought out of town friends for lunch today. We all had the turkey, Swiss, avocado and bacon sandwich. It was phenomenal! For dessert we shared the chocolate, walnut, caramel tart. It was also great.

This place is one of those places that appearances are deceiving. Word of mouth has made this the place to go for lunch. I eat here at least once every year for their unique one of a kind sandwiches and desserts. This is a must stop when you have a day off and want a great place to go for... More

This restaurant consistently has the best lunch food I have tried. Expect a long wait, but it is well worth it. Every item is amazing!

It's only open M-F 11-2; you have to wait in line; order at a counter; sit family style with strangers. Yet it's one of the best lunches I've ever had. The bread is phenomenal. Lunch starts with a basket of warm bread and an olive oil/pesto dip. The brusetta comes with a large salad; the sandwiches are huge -- both... More

This small café is always packed with a line to get in. Limited seating means you share a table with others. No one minds because the food is outstanding and the portions are generous. Everything I have tried has been fresh and delicious. The service is very good and the staff are friendly. Limited hours serving lunch only.

The food is unreal. Hours are limited, line to get in and you have to share a table. All are worth it for the food. Everything is fresh. Bread is the best and you can take some home. Don't leave without a piece of the strawberry cake it is amazing.

Nestled in the front of a warehouse is a quintessential French cafe that rivals similar cafes in New Orleans, Montreal, or Paris. Don't be fooled by the Jacksonville location nor the setting in an industrial area. The cuisine is eclectic, French, and professionally presented. From the sandwiches, to the bread, to the pastries, to the desserts, to the soups and... More

Every few months we send somebody from work to pick up lunch (incl dessert!!). Nobody has anything to say except how exceptionally delicious the food is. thai salad, crawfish brushetta salad, everything is delish. Our favorite desserts are chocolate cake and wedding cake.

I arrived at 12 and didn't sit down until 2pm. It was worth the wait. I got the cheeseburger and fries with wedding cake. My boyfriend ordered the crawfish bruschetta salad and it was all amazing. I see exactly why this place is #1. My absolute new favorite in Jacksonville and I've lived here 25 years!

This hidden gem really seems like it's s carefully kept secret. It's easy to drive right past and think you just passed a warehouse, but inside are some of the most delicious sandwiches and desserts I've ever had. I especially like the turkey, goat cheese, and pesto sandwich, but you really can't go wrong here.
