I love this place! When you get there & wait in line you think you're never going to get a table, but you're wrong, after you order there is always a seat. The food is great, bread outstanding & you feel like you are not in Jax for just a bit. Go!!

Can't wait to go back! Best ever! Neighbor style seating was strange at first but we met amazing people to have table conversations with!

This is the best little sandwich shop in Jax! I just wish they were open for dinner or weekends because they aren't close enough to my work for a normal lunch! Turkey, pesto with goat cheese is my favorite! Their bread is so delicious!!!

The French Pantry offers outstanding food. I've been dining at this restaurant frequently for over 10 years and have never had a meal that was not simply outstanding. There just are not enough words in the dictionary to describe how good the food is, whether one has ordered a salad or sandwich. Everything is fresh. The owners are somehow able... More

Weekend trip to Jacksonville and one of my fave parts of the trip. Absolutely incredible food. I had the goat cheese, portabello, and spinach bruschetta and I would highly recommend it. They give you hot fresh just baked bread to nosh on before your meal. Get dessert to go. Carrot cake was amazing. :) The line moved quickly and you... More

Kept hearing about The French Pantry...amazing food...but the LINE! Well, we must have hit lunch lotto recently. It was an overcast day and that must have scared some folks away. But their loss was our gain. There was a line, but only inside. And what a fate...to have to wait to order as you are forced to drool by the... More

Oh gosh, where to start? First, it's hard to find the first time. But, after your first experience you'll never forget how to get there. As you go south on Powers Avenue from University, watch for a nondescript faded green building on the left side about a quarter mile down the road. Be sure to get there early because it... More

Fantastic lunch menu. Very large portions so skip breakfast. Difficult not to over indulge on the bread and olive oil.

Our family group of four had one sandwich split-for-two and a dessert split-for-two. The sandwich was delicious and the dessert was decadent! Fresh bread and bruschetta are served gratis with olive oil. Heavenly bakery! Salads we observed being served were scary-big! We will definitely return next time in JAX

You will rarely go here without a line, yet the service moves along at a nice pace. the shrimp and grits were some of the best I have ever had. We also indulged in an Itailin cake that was amazing. Don't be put off by the industrial looking skin,as thes folks are gourmet.
