Great place to have lunch even if your time is short. I was able to get in, get served, eat, and still make it back to my meeting on time. The food is nothing short of AWESOME! The same can be said for the atmosphere....More

So I did not really visit the place as they shut by 14:15. So cannot comment on the interiors and seating. However, I ordered Bang Bang Shrimp Po Boy sandwich and it was delicious. I don’t believe, I ate the whole sandwich. The service was...More

Food is good but pricey for lunch. Atmosphere is good. I like the community tables. Sonella (sp?) is the best!

If you enjoy a casual lunch, this is the place to eat. The lunch line outside means only one thing... it’s good. Best sandwiches( you might have to take 1/2 home), fantastic desserts and great service.. you get to share a table with other diners...More

Overrated. It’s OK. Nothing special. For the price it should have way better service. The sandwich was OK. The tables and set up need to be upgraded

The salad I had was delicious, but somewhat higher in cost than I expected. The breads and desserts are first-rate. You may also get to meet new friends if you are seated at a shared table.

I've tried just about everything here from sandwiches to deserts and it's all good. Late 12 oclock lunch takers will be met with a line. Can't go wrong here.

The French Pantry is a must for those in the know in Jacksonville. Be prepared to wait in line or come closer to 2:00. Never had a bad meal! Roast beef and salads are my favorites. Get the cake to go... my favorite is the...More

It's always a treat to come here for lunch. When I first arrived, the line, of course, was out the door. I opted to come back close to two hours later. The rare roast beef with boursin never disappoints. Grab a piece of wedding cake...More

You can't make reservations. But, they do accommodate large groups, if you call ahead and tell them how many are planned. I've been to a couple Meetups there where they made accommodations.
