Clara's Tidbits Restaurant & Catering
Ranked #145 of 2,037 Restaurants in Jacksonville
Price range: $0 - $10
Cuisines: American
Description: 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.

This is a great lunch place with a lot of different options. They are usually busy but very quick and have a lot of seating. I'd definitely recommend it!

“Great lunch”
Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

Went for lunch with my wife and had a great time. The staff was very professional. We ordered the special of the day which was the tuna pita and the eggsalad plate. We were not disappointed it was delicious along with the potato salad. It was all very fresh tasted like it was just picked from the farm. I work close by so im going to make it a traditional thing every friday will be tuna pita friday. :-)

“My favorite lunch spot in JAX!”
Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

Tidbits has quickly become my my favorite lunch spot in Jacksonville. The service is fast and the salad bar is expansive and fresh. The sandwiches are fresh and healthy as they leave off a lot of the fattening sauces other places use.

“Not sure about the hype”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

The chicken salad is good but I cannot understand the rave reviews about that or the rest of the menu. It is close to the office so we order often and each time I want to really "love" it but I am always left underwhelmed. Just okay for me.

“Greatest Chicken Salad Anywhere!!!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

For the BEST chicken salad on planet earth, head to Tidbits. A long time lunch spot favorite of business folks in the downtown area. They have home made chicken salad with a lot more meat than mayo and seasonings that are so unique it will bring you back again and again. You can enjoy it as a salad or in a pita...try both!! They have a very nice salad bar as well that is always fresh and well kept. They have other sandwiches as well and great soups. Always friendly faces, quick service and a nice, clean environment. Only problem here is they are open only for lunch and closed on the weekends. Have used them to cater MANY events and they always do a super job and the food is the same great quality. I miss you Tidbits!
