Delicious!

The food is consistently very good. There is no waiter. You wait in line (which usually means standing outside the front door for a while). Then they sit you at a table with other people. If you have a large party, it's harder to find a seat together. They bring you fresh bread which is so good... read more

We attempted to have lunch at the French Pantry for a while, but the line was always longer than we had time. Finally bit the bullet! The salads and sandwiches selections are great and the actual taste....even better. We had to wait around half an hour, but no regrets. Only pity is that we were too full to go for... More

Best food of its kind in Jacksonville. Winter Soups are the best ever. Breads and desserts like being in a a French Bakery in France. Only draw back is the wait in line and crowded interior. Food to go might be the best solution, but you'd still have to wait on line to order it.

We all love this place, the food es excellent from the bread with oil dipping to the desserts, the staff is also very nice. The line is always long, but it is worth theee wait.

We've gone to The French Pantry many times, have never been disappointed. To start, the bread and dip are so good, I could make a meal of just that! However, everything on the menu is excellent, and the desserts are awesome. Get there by 11 a.m., there is always a line.

The food was terrific with a wonderful variety of sandwiches. The desserts were absolutely delicious! I will warn visitors, this deli is only open for lunch and there is usually about a 30-60 minute wait (yes it is that good). Just be sure you are prepared for the wait.

I love The French Pantry, and so do many, many other people as shown by the line into the restaurant. We were up in Jacksonville for a couple of days and our first stop upon arrival was to The French Pantry. We've been before and it was a definite for us to have lunch here on this trip. The food...

This used to be the best kept secret for lunch in Jax! Now, there are lines out the door and around the building. It's worth the wait! When my relatives from Philly come to Jax to visit, a French Pantry visit is their number one request every time and it never disappoints.

If you come early (11:30 am) you won’t have a long wait but, the food is worth the wait. Mouthwatering burgers, fresh artesian bread made on site, my favorites include the Shrimp Po Boy and the Goat Cheese and Shrimp Bruschetta. The Pantry has an extensive menu sometimes choosing can be difficult. Save room for dessert or take it home.... More
