Portions are huge! You can share everything! There are so many choices thank goodness the line is so long bc it takes me that long to decide what I will get. If you don't like sitting with strangers then take it to go bc they pack you in to the small dining room with random people at your table. I... More

I took my wife here as a surprise lunch. We arrived at 10:45 am, finding the line outside. Once you see the great selection of wonderful sandwich's, salads, and don't forget the desserts you will know at first bite why this place is Jacksonville's #1 place. We will go back . May we suggest to take some of their bakery... More

My friends and I heard so much about it we took a day off to be there when the doors opened. It was everything and more that you could ask for. Deserts were beyond delicious ( chocolate strawberry cake, blue berry cheese cake and the Napoleon was the best) that's not including the entrees that melted in your mouth)

Get the Bruschetta! I'm sure all the other stuff here is good but nothing on the planet beats their bruschetta. Come before opening so you don't have to wait to long in line. Worth the wait though.

Have you ever went to a small restaurant that never lets you down? Well this one never has. You can order anything on the menu and it will be the best or one of the best you've ever had. Even though I no longer live in Jax I always make sure I go when I'm in town. The breads hands... More

I opened TripAdvisor to write a review on what I thought was a well kept secret. Guess not, because it is already number 1, I had the eggplant sandwich. Best I have had ever, anywhere. Others swear by the bruschetta. Forget the bruschettas you have ever ordered anywhere else; this looks like a platter of yummy chopped stuff on a... More

I heard a lot from my friend but always postponed due to the long lines. We finally decided to go one fine day but again got discouraged due to long line. My wife insisted and we waited in the line for about 30 minutes. The line moved quickly and we finally ordered. After tasting the food, I forgot about the... More
