I went here for the first time and I quickly see why everyone I know gushes about this place. Do you have to get there early? You do. Is it really worth it? It is. I don't say that lightly- sooo many places to go,...More

Always refreshing to find an oasis of culture and authenticity wherever you may be -- for Jacksonville, The French Pantry is one such place. Bistro-style lunch -- soups, salads, sandwiches, cakes...all merveilleux!

Some work friends got me hooked on this place. My fave is the shrimp and artichoke bruschetta and the wedding cake. Their hot bread and dipping oil is amazing too. There may be a line, but it is always worth the wait.

Crazy one hour wait but it's always worth it to me. Especially if you con somebody else into waiting in line for you and you show up just in time to be seated. (Thanks, honey). I had the roast beef and cheddar this time, and...More

This out of the way, unexpected location delivers an amazing unique dining experience. The restaurant is the store front of their bakery which supplies fresh baked bread to local establishments. Only open 11:00-2:30 and you need to arrive early. There is always a wait. Always...More

Took my husband here for the first time. He really enjoyed his hot Italian sub. He said it was the best he ever had. We also received a free dessert since it took awhile to get his sandwich. The desserts are out of this world....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.
