Stop here for lunch when traveling. It was a little hard to find but when w saw the line outside figured it must be good. The fare is ordered at the counter then they point you to a table, which might be shared and they bring you food and drinks to you. I had the avocado and shrimp panini. The... More

Another couple we know from Maryland was on their way south, as were we, from Alabama. We figured out we'd all be going through Jacksonville, so I hopped on Trip Advisor and found this convenient (close to I95) and wonderful restaurant for lunch. We knew it must be good when we drove up - big line. And worth the wait!... More

Had the most incredible burger. Perfectly cooked with fried onions and cranberry sauce. Fries weren't great and not that hot but man was that burger stellar. The buscettas looked amazing and my wife's salad was excellent. You may have to wait a bit in line but it's all part of the experience. Met some friendly locals in line who were... More

We did a lunch date here and the food lived up to the hype. I had the Kobe burger and it was phenomenal. My wife had the Goat cheese and pesto sandwich with shrimp and it was excellent You do need to get there before they open or be prepared to wait.

This place was a recommendation of a local friend who took a group of us to lunch. Oh my! I was surprised that we started with dessert and I shared a Napoleon with someone along with also having a French Dip. Several people had what looked like an amazing salad with shrimp and goat cheese on bread. Not only were... More

Best lunch place in JAX hands down! The bruschetta, paninis & the wedding cake are amazing!!! The little rolls with the cheese centers are delicious! You can't go wrong! Only thing is you need to be prepared to wait, the place gets packed! It's best to arrive 45minutes before they even open & get online. You will not be disappointed!

There is typically a long line; but, it is SO worth it. Exquisite food with desserts and breads to die for. If you don't mind waiting in line and eating family style, then French Pantry is a Jacksonville MUST.

the lines there can be very long and the staff is not super friendly. Having said that, the food is very good! Fresh ingredients. Their cakes are very good as well. If you order cake make sure your plan at least four days ahead because they will not get it done if you try last minute.

My husband and I went to the French Pantry by ourselves at first to test the menu and the place. We were impressed by the varied menu and fresh ingredients so went back the a week later with our daughter. Great food and delicious dessert
