This was my second visit to the French Pantry and it was even better the second time around. I live in Atlanta and when i am anywhere near Jacksonville I have to visit. This is only my second meal there, however I have stopped in to buy several of their breads to take home to Atlanta with me, but I... More

The atmosphere is a bit frenetic and the service is focused on getting food to the diners. But the food is excellent. I've been there numerous times and have never been disappointed. Go with whatever interests you. You won't be disappointed either. Salads, sandwiches, bruscetta. It doesn't matter. It's all good. Order desert to go.

What is customer service? Not this place. Heres a pitcher of tea so we dont have to help you. 6 tables in the restraunt with an hour wait... even when you get there early. Chairs are always hitting each other and there arent friendly faces. Yeah the food is good but NOT worth my experience. One try is enough for... More

The eggplant panini is a must-try! Worth waiting in a long line for. I just wish they have a bigger place or another spot downtown closer to where I live.

The French Pantry is a small dining room connected to a large commercial bakery, but believe me they know food. They are particularly known for their delicious salads and bruschettas, but they also make great sandwiches and you can buy a variety of fresh breads made that day. But what they truly rock is their selection of deserts. The brown... More

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
