I work close to this area and many people in my office love tidbits. It's not for me though. I feel like my grandmother would love this place but it's just so tired and dated inside. The food is okay, but isn't great. Some love the potato salad, but I think it's overrated. I will probably go again with coworkers... More

Their lemon squares are to due for! Avoid going in the 12-1 lunch; too crowded. But, either side of that - go! All the good is very good. But, get the lemon squares!

Enjoyed Tidbits for a quick lunch with colleagues at this local favorite for really good quality sandwiches and home prepared food near San Marco and just across the Main Street Bridge near Downtown Jacksonville, Florida. I ordered a tasty chicken salad sandwich on French bread, made with a quality chicken breast recipe with a good choice of seasonings. I recommend... More

I love this place! Garlic mashed potatoes are perfect, they need no additional seasoning. I also had the chicken salad which was delicious. I am not a fan of mayonnaise, so I'm kinda particular about any foods containing mayonnaise, the chicken salad has nice big chunks of chicken and just enough mayo to keep it moist - Perfect!!!

Had meeting at the Florida Baptist Convention Office. Walked to Tidbits for lunch with our group. Everything was prepared to perfection and everyone was pleased with their meals. A very good place for an excellent lunch.

We always enjoy our lunches at Tidbits. Interesting choices of food. The staff is always friendly and helpful. I use a walker and one of the young ladies working the dining area is always helpful.

I believe that Tidbits has an excellent selection of sandwiches and salads. They make their dishes with care and it shows. I have been at meetings where they have provided the food and I have to say that I am delighted by their options. I must add that their chili is some of the best that I have had.

Clara's Tidbits is a Lunch and Catering Restaurant. We've been in business since 1985, at the same location and with the same owners, Greg and Clara LeBLanc. We really focus on fresh foods, great service and fair prices. People come because they can count on the quality and freshness of the food. Our staff is so amazing, we take pride on our great customer service creating a better experience than what you'd expect in a lunch spot. We serve fresh salads, homemade soups and great sandwiches made with care and love. It's simple, but we're going to make sure the ingredients are the freshest we can find. Our concept has always been the same, but we're always evolving and updating. Consistency is really important to us so the majority of our Menu has been the same for most of our 30 plus years. Greg is Cajon, Clara is French and they both come from Restaurant families and both have chef/management experience prior to opening Tidbits. All the recipes have been created from Greg and Clara and Family recipes, like Mama's Peach Bread Pudding and Chicken and Sausage Gumbo.
