Small place, the line was out the door. The wait was not long at all, but worth it the food was "Simply Devine".

Excellent food. Family seating. Always a very long line which is not much fun, especially in inclement weather! The best desserts around. Excellent bread. Friendly and courteous employees.

The food here is so fresh and delicious it is hard to describe. I have had many different things like the shrimp po boy, the french dip, and so on and so on that it's hard to have just one favorite thing. And then there's the desserts....OMG....I leave with at least 3 different desserts to go because I cannot make... More

Absolutely love this place and the food is excellent! The lines can be frustrating at times, but if you can arrive a little early, say before 11:30/11:45, it's not too bad. Or arrive after 1:00.

This place always has a line and it takes awhile before you can get into order but the food and other items are great.

This place is always packed.. I wish they were located in a more attractive location that would allow outdoor dining. The food is excellent though I dislike the cramped and rushed feel of the restuarant.

I had seen plenty of reviews and social media post about this bakery and had been putting off making the drive. I found myself in that area of town and decided it was time. My friend and I had a hard time deciding what we wanted because the entire menu looked amazing. We decided to order the special, a short... More

On a business day trip and found this great spot. We had a large group and waited just a few minutes for a table large enough for our group -not long at all. The food was amazing! The bread and dipping oil is a great way to start but don't fill up ...the potion sizes are large. We have a... More

Stopped in for a lunch to remember and had my expectations exceeded. The chicken panini was fantastic. The bread is as good enough to bring a loaf home. The service was good for a packed house. I got there at just the right time with six person in front of me, a wait less than ten minutes. The place is... More

Hands down my favorite place to eat in Jax! Yes the location is out of the way, yes the parking lot has potholes, yes they seat you at tables with strangers, yes there is always a wait to order and you'll be hard pressed to eat here on your hour long lunch break - doesn't matter. With food this good... More
